Since Acquiring Certain Assets of the Mosquito Magnet Brand from American Biophysics Corp., Woodstream Corp. Has Refined Product

Share Article

Many homeowners and gardeners know Mosquito Magnet® products are some of the best mosquito and biting insect control devices on the market -- backed by nearly two decades of scientific research and more than 15 patents. But what many consumers don’t know is that Woodstream Corporation has been optimizing the Mosquito Magnet product line since the company acquired certain assets from American Biophysics Corp. three years ago.

New Mosquito Magnet® Traps

Not long after the acquisition, we optimized and upgraded the Mosquito Magnet product line and introduced three new models and our exclusive 360 Degree Customer Support program

Upon acquisition of the Mosquito Magnet line of products -- including the Defender, Liberty and Liberty Plus models and the Mosquito Magnet accessories -- Woodstream immediately began analyzing, reassessing and optimizing the traps and their components. This resulted in an upgrade of a patented, high-tech mosquito trap scientifically proven to disrupt mosquito breeding cycles, making the nuisance and discomfort of mosquitoes and biting insects a thing of the past for homeowners who use a Mosquito Magnet in their yard.

As Woodstream continued to optimize the brand, three new mosquito traps were envisioned and produced – the Patriot, Independence and Executive models. All three traps are supported by proven technology and 360 Degree Customer Support.

Mosquito Magnet traps use patented CounterFlow™ Technology to emit a stream of carbon dioxide, produced by an ordinary propane tank through a flameless catalytic conversion process; the carbon dioxide, which mimics human breath, initially attracts the mosquitoes. As they near the Mosquito Magnet, they are further drawn in by the short-range attractant released in the carbon dioxide. Not leaving anything to chance, the Mosquito Magnet captures the mosquitoes in a vacuum and pulls them into the device’s net, where they dehydrate and die within 24 hours.

Placed between mosquito breeding areas -- commonly standing water, bushes and shrubs -- and human activity, the Mosquito Magnet controls mosquitoes all season long.

“Not long after the acquisition, we optimized and upgraded the Mosquito Magnet product line and introduced three new models and our exclusive 360 Degree Customer Support program,” explained Andy Long, Brand Manager. “We are dedicated to providing superior products and superior consumer care -- by phone, online, and in person.”

“Mosquito Magnet was a solid product to begin with,” Long said. “Woodstream simply refined the product to make it the industry-leading technology it is today.”
