The History of Biogents Mosquito Traps
Mosquitoes have been a nuisance to humans since forever. So, plenty of mosquito repellent and population control systems have been developed over time, from mosquito nets and repellent plants to electric bug swatters, bug zappers, repellent sprays, and insecticide spraying. Unfortunately, these options are either inefficient in catching mosquitoes or involve the use of chemicals that emit noxious gases. Because of this, Biogents aimed to develop a mosquito population control solution that’s efficient, non-toxic, and more effective than other solutions in the market. The principle of Biogents mosquito control traps in combination with Biogents BG-Sweetscent is based on more than 16 years of scientific research. Designed to bait and trap mosquitoes, the traps catch the mosquitoes before they reach you and can decrease the mosquito population in a sustainable way on a long term – assuming that the traps are well positioned.
What Makes Biogents Mosquito Traps Different?
The Biogents mosquito traps are highly efficient and the effect is scientifically proven. The traps target specifically mosquitoes and do not harm other beneficial insects. The patented attractant BG-Sweetscent for the suction traps makes them highly attractive for the dangerous tiger mosquitoes. The addition of CO2 makes the traps very attractive also for other mosquito species.
● Non-toxic, lactic acid-based mosquito attractant that mimics human skin scent to bait host-seeking mosquitoes (especially the Asian tiger mosquitoes and yellow fever mosquitoes)
● Only catches mosquitoes and not other essential insects like bees and butterflies
● The mosquito traps and Biogents mosquito attractants (BG-Sweetscent) are proven of robustness and high quality regardless of the environmental conditions
● Color, design and size of the trap work as visual cues for the mosquitoes to lure them into the trap
● Safe, watertight cable connections
● Energy-efficient, using only $2 worth of electricity for the entire mosquito season (May to September)*
*Computed at the average electricity cost in the US of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour. Mosquito seasons can vary depending on region and climate.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many mosquitoes can a trap catch?
The number of mosquitoes you can trap depends on the season, the mosquito species, weather and other environmental factors as well as the positioning of the traps. During the summer months mosquitoes are most active and if there are flood water mosquitoes, you can catch thousands of mosquitoes in one day with a well-placed Biogents CO2 mosquito trap after heavy rainfall.
Where is the mosquito trap best placed?
Mosquito traps are best placed in shady, humid and windless areas since these are the places where mosquitoes tend to rest over the day. You can experiment by starting with placing the trap under bushes or the trees in your yard. This means you can bait and trap mosquitoes before they have the chance to reach the patio and bite you. You may have to try several different locations to achieve the best success. A few meters can cause a huge difference in the attractiveness. In general, the catch rate will depend on many factors, including the size of the mosquito population, availability of breeding sites, amount of vegetation suitable for resting sites, and migration into and from surrounding properties. Try to observe where your mosquitoes are coming from (where their resting places are) and put your traps close there.
