Flowtron MA-1000-6 Octenol Mosquito Attractant Cartridges (6-Pack)I was very skeptical that this product would work.

This really does a good job of attracting the mosquitos to the bug zappers.

(PS 2010--there is now a better attractant that attracts more kinds of mosquito. So this product is perhaps obsolete.)

Can be placed in any type of mosquito killer or catcher. Just place anywhere that the air flows around it. This is the best buy with Amazon free shipping. (Other suppliers will charge shipping for each small package. It adds up.)

This may be smaller than your original cartridges. However, no matter how big a cartridge is, it can not last much longer. It is better to buy the cheapest cartridge and replace it more often. And Flowtron is a name brand, not some unknown manufacturer.

I keep 2 of these cartridges in each mosquito trap, as follows. Twice a month, the oldest cartridge is thrown out, the other is moved to the back, and a new one is placed in the front. In my experience, Octenol may be more significant for catching the mosquitos than CO2, LED lights, UV lights, etc.

NOTE: please hold your breath from the moment you open the package--place your mosquito trap away from where you sit or work--use gloves or be very careful not to touch the chemically infused areas. I doubt that anyone knows the long term risks of octenol. The smell is noticably noxious, sort of like moth balls, and labeled as dangerous.

The Flowtron lamp doesn't work at all to get rid of the mosquitoes without these cartridges.

They're great!

Just make sure that you paste it so that the holes on the cartridge are exposed because my boyfriend did it the other way around and couldn't figure out why it didn't work until I got a closer look at it!

Flowtron MA-1000-6 Octenol Mosquito Attractant seems to do as directed. It seems to attract moths and mosquitoes as advertised. I have not had it long enough to know for sure if it works or if it is worth the price.

What I do have an issue with is the wording on the product information page of the Amazon.Com web-site.

The ad on your web-site states that the product remains active for up to 3 months. I took that to mean an order of six cartridges would add up to be 3 months per cartridge for an approximate total of 18 months (1 ½ years). So, I bought a box of six cartridges.

When I received the product the container says to replace cartridge every 450 hours (18 ¾ days). That means that the total box of six cartridges will last a total 112 ½ days (3 ¾ months).

I feel that the ad was a little misleading and it gave me the impression that it would last six times longer. I was quite disappointed when I realized just how much I paid for only a total 3 months supply of mosquito attractant. I can see by the numbers where the confusion lies. The total container is the total 3 months specified in the information page on your web-site and not 3 months per cartridge. Anyway, I do understand the mix up but I'm not too happy about it...

I bought a Flowtran 40W several weeks ago. I used the trap with and without the Octenol. In my opinion, there is hardly any difference whether I use the octenol or not. The trap only works after sunset, and it seems like the light is the only thing that attracts the bugs. When I am out during the day working in the yard, I can see mosquitoes trying to bite me, but they don't bother to check out my trap+octenol set up. If they like Octenol, I should hear the 'zap' throughout the day, but I don't. I also read the government reviews ([...]) and it doesn't look like Octenol does any 'magic' to attract the bugs.

We bought this mosquito trap which used these octenol cartridges(mosquito attractant).
I was constantly amazed at how effective the trap is. I was cleaning the machine twice a week so that it did not get too plugged.
We enjoyed a summer on our deck without mosquitoes.
I did follow the trap placement recommendations in the directions, which I am sure is crucial.
Anyway: Before the trap with attractant(early summer) we were being chased indoors from mosquitoes. After the trap, after a couple of weeks, I did not see any more mosquitoes.
I definitely recommend it if you live in the Sierra Nevada. It worked well for me at 4500 feet elevation level.

This can get pretty expensive during the summer. You will go through one cartridge per week, so stock up if on sale.

This does not appear to attract more mosquitos than the light does by itself. The chemical is toxic to touch per the package warnings and it's not easy to get the cartidges into the light as instructed. Save your money....not worth the hassel.

The flowtron MA 1000-6 octenol mosquito attractant is a fairly expensive addition to your bluish-light electric mosquito zapper. The mosquitos in our yard seem no less dense and active than they were before I used the attractant. Indeed, they were either laughing at the attractant, or were angrier than normal because of it. Frankly, I found it ineffective; yet, others may well have had the opposite experience as each situation (trees, grass, dampness, water supply, winds, etc.) is different.
