Why upgrade to carbon dioxide (CO2)?

Why upgrade to carbon dioxide (CO2)?

Why upgrade to carbon dioxide (CO2) If you live in a suburban or urban setting near low lying areas that are subject to flooding, and you are mainly bothered by mosquitoes in the evening, the cause of your problem is probably floodwater mosquitoes and not tiger mosquitoes. Floodwater mosquitoes Floodwater species develop in early spring in woodland snowmelt pools and during the summer in woodland and open field rainwater pools or drainage ditches that hold water for a few weeks to months. A number of floodwater breeding species occur throughout the US and can cause serious annoyance around dusk. Some of the...

Scientific foundation and publications

Scientific foundation and publications

Scientific foundation and publications Biogents’ mosquito traps were invented by scientists who have been doing research on the behaviour of mosquitoes and other blood-sucking insects for over 16 years. The scientific foundation of Biogents mosquito traps are more than 300 publications that document the exceptional capture rates. Useful applications and a number of patents have resulted from sound fundamental research at the University of Regensburg. Capture devices originally built for fellow researchers and specialists have evolved into fully developed products within a short period of time. All trap types are based on the same patentedtechnology and differ only in design....

Controlling Tiger & other Container Breeding Mosquitoes

Controlling Tiger & other Container Breeding Mosquitoes

Controlling tiger and other container breeding mosquitoes To effectively control container breeding mosquitoes (like tiger mosquitoes, Aedes albopictus, or dengue mosquitoes, Ae. aegypti), an integrated vector control program is the best approach. Integrated control employs a number of different methods that when used together, provide a superior result compared to a single solution. Integrated mosquito control involves: environmental management and sanitation  larval control  adult control Environmental management and sanitation Since Aedes aegypti and Ae. albopictus are both invasive species that breed in natural and man-made containers, measures that can be taken to keep them from becoming established in an area are important. Used tires have served...

The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus)

The Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus)

The Asian tiger mosquito is here to stay The Asian tiger mosquito (scientifically:¬†Aedes albopictus, meaning ‚ÄúThe white-painted unpleasant one‚ÄĚ) is a day-active and aggressive mosquito that has been spreading across the United States since the mid-eighties, and it continues to do so. This mosquito usually lives closely associated with humans in the urban and suburban environment and is a significant nuisance in many communities. It can also be the vector of a number of diseases. Below, you will find a description of the Asian tiger mosquito, its biology, its life cycle and the threat it may pose. ‚ÄúAlbopictus‚ÄĚ means white-painted...

Aedes aegypti, the yellow fever mosquito

Aedes aegypti, the yellow fever mosquito

Distribution of Aedes aegypti The yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) is widespread throughout the tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Aedes aegypti was the target of a hemisphere-wide eradication effort to eliminate yellow fever in the Americas during the period from late 1940’s to the early 1970’s. By 1962, 18 countries plus several islands in the Caribbean announced they had eradicated the mosquito, largely through a spraying program involving DDT and well-funded programs to train personnel to conduct the necessary field work, and purchase equipment and supplies. Unfortunately, after 1962 only three more countries or territories eliminated the vector. Not every country...
