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 100,000 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.
