How It Works

research on mosquito traps

The Mosquito Magnet patriot, otherwise known as MM4100, is basically a mosquito or insect trapping device which also targets other nuisance pests without the harmful odor and annoying noise most trapping device give off.

The product is suitable for outdoor areas with coverage up to one acre. The device can also be plugged in an electrical socket for 24 hours for a whopping 7 days, everyday basically.

The product does this through the mechanism of its patented Counter Flow technology which gives off carbon dioxide as well as heat and moisture. These components help attract the mosquitoes or other insects and then captures them in a respective reservoir. 

The idea of Co2, heat and moisture being emitted by the device is actually patterned after the way humans attract mosquitoes and other insects. Using this concept and the counter flow technology, propane is being converted to Co2 and produces heat and moisture. 

When insects are finally lured into the trap they are being sucked into a fine net with the use of a vacuum. When this happens they are dehydrated and are now devoid of any nutrients that keep them alive, thereby killing them in the process.

Assembly and Installation

The Patriot is very easy to setup and install. In terms of operating the device, it is fairly easy to learn and the buttons as well as functions are easy to understand and manipulate. With this device, you need not to spend a lot of time assembling the parts unlike most mosquito trapping devices.

Coverage

Aside from its very wide coverage, amounting up to one acre, it also has its exclusive 360 degree support program which ensures protection from mosquitoes at basically all angles.
