What is Octenol attractant?
Octenol mosquito attractant is a lure that replicates CO2 so mosquitoes get attracted to our range of mozzie traps and maximisers our capture rate. It’s also produced by some fungi, including edible mushrooms. Mosquitoes and other insects can sense it, so it attracts them, as well as black flies and no-see-ums. It is completely safe and is even approved to be added to food and it’s also used in perfume.
Octenol mosquito attractant can be used in the following traps manufactured by Pestrol: Dominator, Exterminator, Indoor Mosquito Assassin and Sleep Easy Mosquito Trap.
