The Mosquito Magnet Defender from American Biophysics Corp. utilizes the company’s hot-surface igniter. The mini gas hot-surface igniter is specially applied in the mosquito catcher. By mimicking human breath, the mosquito catcher uses the biological characteristics of the mosquito or other biting insects to dehydrate and kill the insects within 24 hours. The device emits a plume of carbon dioxide, heat, moisture, and a special attractant to lure mosquitoes to the trap. Once drawn to the trap, mosquitoes are vacuumed into a net where they are dehydrated and die. The mosquito magnet disrupts breeding cycles by killing the egg-producing females, dramatically reducing the number of mosquitoes in the user’s yard all season long.
