The quantity of mosquitoes caught by a Mosquito Magnet varies greatly, depending on both your region's infestation level and the placement of the device on your property.
In tests run in the Florida Everglades (where there are recorded high infestation levels) 1,500 mosquitoes were captured in one night—that's a lot of mosquitoes. In more urban areas, however, catch results will almost always be much less. A good yardstick is to ask yourself, "Are they biting me?". If you find yourself being bitten constantly, it's likely that infestation levels are high in your area.
