Biogents products: mosquito traps and mosquito attractants
Biogents mosquito traps are the result of more than 16 years of academic research into the behavior of mosquitoes. As a result, a highly effective type of trap was developed that targets tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) that are host-seeking. The other type of trap that is offered by Biogents targets tiger mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs.
Biogents mosquito traps can locally control mosquito populations and significantly reduce biting pressure and nuisance. With over 200,000 sold mosquito traps, Biogents is one of the market leaders for tiger mosquito traps (Asian tiger mosquitoes, Aedes albopictus, and dengue or yellow fever mosquitoes, Aedes aegypti). The superior efficiency of Biogents mosquito traps has been scientifically proven by researchers worldwide.
Introduction to Biogents traps
Traps are probably the best way to reduce your local mosquito population presupposed that the traps catch efficiently mosquitoes. Biogents has developed traps that only target bloodsucking insects and show the highest catch rates of mosquitoes – even without using toxic pesticides.
Biogents mosquito attractant for tiger mosquitoes
The BG-Sweetscent is an artificial odor that mimics scents found on human skin. It targets host-seeking female mosquitoes. Using the BG-Sweetscent as an additional attractant increases the trap's catch rate of tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) dramatically. In 2016, Biogents received EPA registration for the BG-Sweetscent.
Additionally, scientific studies show that using BG Sweetscent in a variety of other commercially available mosquito traps can increase catch rates of mosquitoes that transmit diseases like Dengue, Zika, or Chikungunya by up to 10 fold.
"BG-Mosquitaire is exceeding my expectations. I have been searching for good mosquito traps available USA and in EU. And this summer I have bought and tried six different kinds traps. I am most pleased with BG-Mosquitaire."
"Hello, my husband bought the BG unit that attracts Asian tiger mosquitos and it is working so well after 2 weeks, that I felt confident to post it on Facebook and nextdoor.com [...]
I believe in your cause and would love to see the broadcast spraying be banned.
"HANNA IS WONDERFUL WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE. BIOGENTS TRAPS WORK BEAUTIFULLY. EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE."
"I would recommend the BG - Mosquitaire CO2 trap because it works and is relatively inexpensive and safer to operate and is used by local governments across the U.S.A. and the world. I do believe in Biogents products and wish you continued success in the U.S.A."
I am very please with the almost 30,000 mosquitoes that were prevented from being born (56 x 500 eggs = 28,000) thanks to the BG trap. This only counts the ones stuck to the paper not the ones that were dehydrated on the net.
Also so interesting to see how the traps perform differently based on their location around my house and how the one trap gets flies?? While two others also catch tons of little nats.
I have set up the Mosquitaire unit (with CO2) and two GAT traps on our small urban lot and after only a few days we have caught so many mosquitoes. Our property is becoming nice again! Thank you so much for developing this product. I plan to let my neighbors know about it as we live near a creek and have awful mosquito problems every summer. I can't tell you how nice it is to be able to sit on our patio without needing bug spray or using other toxic chemicals.
