Backyard tiger mosquito control

Biogents products: mosquito traps and mosquito attractants

Mosquito traps

Biogents mosquito traps are the result of more than 16 years of academic research into the behaviour of mosquitoes. As a result, a highly effective type of trap, the BG Mosquitare, was developed that targets mosquitoes that are host-seeking. Biogents also offers the BG-GAT which targets 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 mosquito traps sold, 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: Click here to download a list of scientific studies with Biogents traps.

In the USA, we offer two tiger mosquito traps for home owners, the BG-Mosquitaire and the BG-GAT.

Mosquito attractants

Our artificial skin odor “BG-Sweetscent”, which is EPA registered, serves to enhance the attractiveness of mosquito traps. In scientific studies it could be shown that the BG-Sweetscent not only enhances the attractiveness of Biogents tiger mosquito traps, but also the attractiveness for tiger mosquitoes of other mosquito traps such as zapper and black hole traps.
