Octenol Mosquito Attractant
U.S. Government and university researchers have demonstrated that
octenol, a component of respiration, is effective in attracting many
species of mosquitoes and biting ﬂies. Your Flowtron insect killer uses
an exclusive slow-release Octenol Mosquito Attractant Cartridge (MA-
1000) which increases the effectiveness of the
insect killer to lure mosquitoes and biting ﬂies
into its killing grid.
1. Directions for Use:

protective cover from the face of the cartridge. Avoid touching the
openings in the cartridge and always wash

Peel the backing paper from the other side of the tape and press
the cartridge ﬁrmly into the bulb retainer at the bottom of the enclo-
sure (see illustration).

air ﬂow to vaporize the lure and disperse it at the proper rate per
hour for maximum effectivity. For best results replace the cartridge
every 30 days.
