Backyard tiger mosquito control

The “BG-Mosquitaire” is very efficient at catching tiger mosquitoes

Biogents’ “BG-Mosquitaire” trap is an effective tool that has been specifically developed to control Asian tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes. Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) are predominantly found in subtropical and tropical countries where they can transmit diseases like dengue fever, chikungunya, or Zika. In the US, they are invasive species that have become significant pests and potential disease vectors throughout much of the southern half of the United States from California to New York.

The sturdy plastic trap is designed to be placed in your garden or backyard and has been tried and tested worldwide. The mosquito trap should be placed near mosquito resting areas such as shrubs and dense vegetation and away from decks and patios. This way, the trap will catch the mosquitoes before they reach the patio and annoy you. To maximize the effectiveness of the trap, it is important to also remove any water holding containers in the yard that could potentially support development of mosquito larvae.

Patented technology

The trap uses the same patented capture technology found in all Biogents traps. In contrast to most of the other mosquito species, is not necessary to use carbon dioxide to trap the day biting tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes. Adding Biogents patented mix of artificial skin emanations, the BG-Sweetscent lure, to the already attractive Mosquitare, is sufficient to attract these mosquitoes. To the mosquito, the trap looks just like a human being.

The trap provides

If the traps are correctly positioned and run continuously throughout the season, they will effectively decrease the mosquito population, and you can enjoy your patio again.

The placement of the mosquito trap is an important factor to ensure high catch rates.
Therefore, it is best to test different locations!

The Biogents trap system – stronger together

Biogents Trap System

Biogents recommends to use the BG-Mosquitaire trap in combination with a  BG-GAT trap for outdoors. Both traps complement each other in an ideal way since they target tiger mosquitoes of different stages. The third component, the BG-Home, captures those tiger mosquitoes that entered your house and also other flying pest insects indoors.

The complete Biogents trap system is available here >

If you are mainly bothered by other than tiger mosquitoes, e.g., house or flood mosquitoes, we recommend to use outdoors exclusively the BG-Mosquitaire trap in combination with CO2 and the BG-Booster CO2.
