Biogents mimics human skin scents with the BG-Sweetscent
A hungry female mosquito (male mosquitoes don’t bite) recognizes and finds a human being from a relatively long distance by the breath and skin scents. The most important component of breath is carbon dioxide (CO2), and it is used by most mosquitoes as a major host-finding cue. In addition to carbon dioxide, there are also certain components of human skin scents that provide important information to mosquitoes in their search for blood. Among others, these are lactic acid, different fatty acids, or ammonia.
