BG-Mosquitaire CO2 against all mosquito species shows highest efficacy in mosquito control

Biogents’ Mosquitaire CO2 (BG-Mosquitaire CO2) trap is an excellent and eco-friendly tool to control all mosquito species and other flying bloodfeeding insects. The sturdy plastic trap is designed to be placed in your garden and has been tried and tested worldwide. Place the trap close to the mosquito resting areas and breeding places of the mosquitoes. In this way the trap will catch the mosquitoes before they reach the patio and annoy you.

Patented technology

The trap uses the same patented capture technology of all Biogents traps with the additional use of pure carbon dioxide (CO2) which is an attractive key element of human respiration and the most important attractant for blood-feeding insects. To the mosquito, the trap looks just like a human being.

No trap from other manufacturers offers a comparable combination of

  • highest capture rates – scientifically proven
  • specifity does not damage beneficial insects like butterflies, bees, or ladybugs
  • and eco friendliness – uses no insecticides

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

Positioning is an important factor for the catch rates. Test different locations!

Positioning of Biogents mosquito traps on shady, moist places in the garden
  • application outdoors
  • placement in shady, wind-protected moist places, near breeding sites of mosquitoes

Effect

For efficient and sustainable mosquito control it is necessary to

  • continuously operate the trap (24 hours for a number of weeks)
  • applicate the trap early in the season

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

CO2

CO2 Emission of the BG-Mosquitaire CO2 mosquito trap

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is the most important attractant for blood-feeding insects and necessary to attract a wide range of mosquito species.
For the BG-Mosquitaire Biogents suggests as CO2 source carbon dioxide from 10 kg bottles which are also used in pubs and restaurants. Such a bottle lasts for three to seven weeks, depending on the flow rate used (500 or 200 grams per day). Under most circumstances, a flow rate of 200 grams per day is sufficient. The flow rates correspond to the rate that is released by a small child.

Carbon dioxide bottles are available at gas stores and gastronomy suppliers.

Placement of traps diminishes the local mosquito population when

  • correctly positioned
  • continuously operated (24 hours for a number of weeks)
  • applicated early in the season

Examples of areas that can be protected by traps

  • private gardens
  • beer gardens, cafés, and restaurants
  • parks and hotels
  • campgrounds
  • beach pools and forest pools
  • facilities for sports and recreation
  • rehabilitation clinics and wellness facilities

The BG-CO2 timer

To reduce your CO2 costs the new BG-CO2 timer allows you to control when CO2 is released by establishing specific start and stop times. It enables you to set up two start and end times to release CO2 each day.
