Using an attractant is very important to the performance of the Terminator. Once mosquitoes sense the carbon dioxide already being emitted from the unit, the Lure then acts as an extra incentive to encourage them into the unit.
Octenol is the key ingredient in each lure, and is designed to mimic the pheromones (sex hormones) we produce, that makes them love us so much.
Each attractant lasts approximately 30 days, or 3-4 weeks, depending on weather conditions.
To use: Peel off the foil lid of the attractant, remove the lid/hat of the Terminator Machine, and place the Lure inside. Replace the lid/hat, and turn the machine on. The smell of the attractant will be drawn down and into the machine by the fan, and out through the purposely built holes around the sides (where the light comes out).
