What is Lurex3™ Mosquito Attractant? Lurex3™ is a patent-pending mosquito attractant that mimics naturally occurring human skin scents or odors known to attract mosquitoes. This EPA-registered product is the only attractant developed for the Asian Tiger Mosquito. It has been designed for use with all Mosquito Magnet® Traps. Made in the U.S.A.
What is in Lurex3? There are two active ingredients In the Lurex component the active ingredients includes lactic acid, 35.40%. In the Ammonium Bicarbonate component, Ammonium Bicarbonate is 74.63%.
What does Lurex3™ attract? Mosquito Magnet lurex attracts Asian Tiger mosquitoes, a day biter, and other species that may transmit diseases such as West Nile Virus, Encephalitis and Heartworm. Our studies have shown that Lurex3™ out catches octenol by 3:1 on the Asian Tiger Mosquito. The insects are attracted by the carbon dioxide and the Lurex3™ and are drawn to the Mosquito Magnet® trap (purchase separately) where they are captured, then dehydrate and die.
Who Should Use Lurex? Those who live in the Southern regions of the continental USA and in Hawaii. In those areas the main types of biting insect pests include the day-biting Asian Tiger Mosquito and other mosquito species as well as no-see-ums and black flies. Coastal areas in the Southern regions, however, should use the attractant Octenol.
There have been recent spottings of the Asian Tiger mosquito in Northern regions. If you have tried Octenol and are still getting bit, try Lurex3™.
How Often Should The Cartridge Be Replaced? The Lurex3™ cartridge should be replaced every 21 days. After 21 days of use, the cartridge appears the same; however, it will no longer be effective since the Lurex3™ will have been released. The catch rate will be reduced if the attractant is not changed..
