Biogents' BG-GAT (Gravid Aedes Trap) is a low-cost and easy to use tool that was specially developed to help you reduce the Asian tiger (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) population in your backyard. These species are day biters, very aggressive, and can transmit diseases like dengue fever, Zika, and chikungunya. 


In comparison to the BG-Mosquitaire trap, it targets a different stage of the mosquitoes: Mosquitoes that have already bitten and are now searching for a place to lay their eggs. Since they are only a small percentage of those that are host-seeking, the BG-GAT catches naturally fewer mosquitoes than the BG-Mosquitaire.

The big advantage of this trap version is that it is passive, which means it does not require power or supplemental attractants like CO2 or chemical lures. This provides great flexibility in deployment and easiness in handling. Previously bloodfed mosquitoes that are targeted by the BG GAT are important to remove from the population. Trapping these females can eliminate 50-100 offspring from the next generation and prevent the potential for disease transmission from virus-infected mosquitoes.

The BG-GAT uses water and oviposition cues to attract female Asian tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs. It is therefore important to remove most other breeding sources that are competing with the BG-GAT. Once in the trap, the mosquitoes are collected on a sticky card and die. 

The BG-GAT trap was developed by Dr. Eiras from the Universidade Federal de Minas Geraisin Brazil, and Dr. Ritchie from the James Cook University in Australia. Biogents produces and distributes the trap under a license agreement with both universities.

What's the difference between BG-Mosquitaire and BG-Sentinel?

There is no difference concerning the catching rate, but only in the construction. They use the same patented technology and the same electrical components. The BG-Sentinel is our original trap that is designed for scientists and researchers to monitor mosquito populations. It is made out of a light and easily transportable material. The BG-Mosquitaire is designed for Home & Office backyard, patio & terrace.

What's the difference between BG-Mosquitaire and BG-Mosquitaire CO2?

The BG-Mosquitaire (without CO2) only catch tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus, Aedes aegypti). The CO2 versions attract all kinds of species (e.g., Culex). The CO2 version provide a higher catching rate regarding tiger mosquitoes too.
