    July 2016 – Intelligent mosquito counter: Biogents facing competition from Microsoft?

    Scientists all over the world can now track the growth of mosquito populations on their computers. German mosquito experts developed in cooperation with a company from Silicon Valley a new kind of high-tech equipment – a mosquito counting machine. The counter is now going into serial production. Recently, a demonstration model has come online at Lake Starnberg south of Munich, Germany. Since mid-June, it has been possible to track the increase in mosquito populations after the recent floods and even the times at which these insects are particularly active.

    Last week, Microsoft announced that it was developing a similar mosquito trapping system, indicating that the demand for such intelligent mosquito traps is great and will continue to grow in the future.

    June 2016 – CDC recommends Biogents mosquito traps

    The CDC recommends using the BG-Sentinel trap as a surveillance tool in the fight against tiger mosquitoes which transmit dengue fever, chikungunya fever, and the Zika virus. According to the CDC, the BG-Sentinel is one of the most highly used mosquito traps to collect adult tiger mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus).

    March 2015 – BG-Sentinel trap as a control tool to reduce Aedes albopictus nuisance in an urban enviroment in Cesena, Italy

    Aedes albopictus is both a nuisance and a competent vector for various arthropod-borne pathogens. Although efficient traps for Ae. albopictus exist and are used for population monitoring, their use as a control tool has not yet been studied. We evaluated Biogents BG-Sentinel mosquito traps, used with the BG Lure, as control tools in northern Italy. Between 64% and 87% fewer Ae. albopictus individuals were collected by HLC at the intervention sites with the BG-Sentinel mosquito traps, as compared to the untreated control sites. These results indicate that the sustained use and proper placement of efficient mosquito traps can significantly reduce Ae. albopictus biting pressure.

    June 2014 – Comparison of 4 traps used for mosquito monitoring and surveillance programs: The BG-Sentinel trap is probably the best solution

    Four different traps, Biogents Sentinel trap (BG trap), Heavy Duty Encephalitis Vector Survey trap (EVS trap), Centres for Disease Control miniature light trap (CDC trap) and Mosquito Magnet Patriot Mosquito trap (MM trap) were compared in a 4×4 latin square study. In the years 2012 and 2013, more than seventy 24-hour trap comparisons were conducted at ten different locations in northern and southern Germany, representing urban, forest and floodplain biotopes.

    April 2014 – 1400 households, 450 Biogents traps, uncounted dengue mosquitoes – a long-term study in Brazil

    A large-scale study published in the Entomological Society of America’s Journal of Medical Entomology has demonstrated for the first time that the Biogents traps can reduce the number of dengue mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) in a broad urban area. The study co-financed by the world-bank was conducted over 18 months with more than 1400 households and 450 Biogents traps in Manaus, Brazil. The result: „The study shows that the Biogents traps can significantly reduce the amount of adult female Aedes aegypti especially in the rainy season” says Prof. Eiras from the University Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil).
