Bagshaw Electric no longer sells Mosquito Magnet machines, and we no longer provide repairs. We still continue to sell supplies and accessories for the Mosquito Magnet.
What is a Mosquito Magnet and how does it work?
- The patented catalytic conversion process of the Mosquito Magnet,converts propane gas into CO2 (carbon dioxide).
This mimics human breath, which mosquitoes absolutely love. Combined with the heat, moisture, and a short range attractant, this all becomes very irresistible for mosquitoes.
- As soon as the mosquitoes are near the Mosquito Magnet trap area, the patented Counterflow Technology sucks them in like a vacuum, and they are drawn into the net inside the machine. They will then die of dehydration.
- Enjoy outdoor living….mosquito free!
Common Mosquito Magnet Questions
Q: Why would I want a Mosquito Magnet to attract mosquitoes?
A: The idea behind the Mosquito Magnet, is to place the magnet 30-40 feet away from your home, business, or gathering area. The mosquitoes will be attracted to the magnet, and thus, far away from you.
Q: Is the Mosquito Magnet loud?
A: No. It is a quietly operating machine. It will not disturb you or your neighbors.
Q: Which model of the Mosquito Magnet is right for me?
A: There are a few different models of the Mosquito Magnet, and they range in features, and size of coverage area. The Mosquito Magnet Patriot and the Mosquito Magnet Independence will both cover up to 1 acre, which is plenty of coverage for most yards. The main difference between the two Mosquito traps is that the Mosquito Magnet Patriot uses a 50′ power cord, whereas the Mosquito Magnet Independence is a battery operated cordless machine. It is important to research the product’s features to get the best results for your situation. Feel free to contact our customer service center, and we will gladly assist you in this process.
Q: How much maintenance and up-keep does the Mosquito Magnet require?
A: Not much is required of you to operate the Mosquito Magnet. You will need to fill the propane tank, and replace attractants periodically. Every once in a while, you will need to empty the mosquito net as needed.
Q: Do you offer maintenance and repair services for the Mosquito Magnet?
A: We no longer provide maintenance and repair services at Bagshaw Electric, but you can visit Woodstream here for assistance.
Q: Does the Mosquito Magnet come with propane, and a propane tank?
A: No. The Mosquito Magnet does not come with propane or a propane tank. You can find one at your local fuel station for relatively cheap. However, if you happen to live in, or near Stettler, Alberta, Canada, we happen to also be a propane station.
Q: What is included in the box when I buy a Mosquito Magnet?
A: Everything you need to get started will be included in the box (except for the propane and propane tank). Various different packages and bundles are available. Contact us for more information.
Q: Are Mosquito Magnets safe for pets and wildlife?
A: Perfectly safe. In fact it would be less safe not to have one. Getting rid of your biting insects problem will reduce the chance of your beloved pets getting bit and infected by a diseased mosquito. Of course, the likelihood of that happening is very small, but it’s an extra benefit of having this machine in your yard.
Q: How does the Mosquito Magnet compare to other mosquito repellents and bug repelling products?
A: The Mosquito Magnet has many advantages over common types of bug repelling products. Bug sprays and lotions are stinky, messy and wasteful. Also, unlike the Mosquito Magnet, they do not cause a reduction in the mosquito population. “Bug Zappers” can be highly effective for some types of bugs, but unfortunately they do not work well on mosquitoes. Mainly because “bug zappers” (also known as an electronic insect control system), use ultraviolet light as an attractant, but the mosquito is not attracted to ultraviolet light all that much. Even worse than that, the ultraviolet light actually helps the mosquito to see and find standing water, where they like to lay their eggs. A Notre Dame University study in South Bend Indiana showed that people with a bug zapper in their yard were bit 10% more than people without one.
