Why buy your Biogents on luxebackyard.com

Hello,

if you have arrived on this product page, it is because you have decided that it was time to take possession of your terrace or garden!

Mosquitoes are a disaster, it's not a secret:

  • They prevent you from taking full advantage of your outdoor spaces, forcing you to stay locked inside at certain times of the day!
  • Leave you horrible pimples, which itches you!
  • They can transmit diseases
  • Even your animals are annoyed by these tiny creatures thirsty of fresh blood!

Fortunately, after having tested many solutions, we finally found our happiness! A truly effective mosquito trap designed more than 18 years ago in Germany (all the technical details below and the scientific evidence in the appropriate tab)!

The BG-Mosquitaire comes as a bundle of two products, the trap, and the mosquito attractant (1 BG-Sweetscent included):

This high-catch-rate trap "BG-Mosquitaire" was specifically developed for use against Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) which are both day-active, very aggressive biters, and potential vectors of diseases such as dengue fever, Zika, and chikungunya. The trap targets those mosquitoes that are actively searching for a host to bite. In many scientific studies it has been shown that the trap catches significantly more tiger mosquitoes than other traps without carbon dioxide.

The trap has been designed to simulate a human being. It features a patented combination of attractive visual signals, and a specially designed mix of artificial skin emanations ("BG Sweetscent" - effective for two months) that are released into the environment through an air plume that mimics convection currents created by a human body.

The BG-Mosquitaire attracts the mosquitoes and captures them with the help of a ventilator before they can reach the patio to bite you. If the trap is correctly positioned and runs continuously throughout the season, it will effectively decrease the mosquito population, and you can enjoy your patio again.

BG-Mosquitaire Features:

  • a trap made of sturdy plastic for a sustainable, durable, long-lasting design and construction to be placed in your garden or backyard
  • diameter 40 cm to be seen by mosquitoes
  • does not require carbon dioxide, propane, butane, or other flammable gases
  • does mainly catch mosquitoes and not other insects like butterflies, bees or ladybugs
  • requires little care and maintenance
  • energy-saving uses approximately 14.7 kilowatt-hours of electricity if run continuously from 1 May to 30 September. At the average U.S. electricity cost of 12 cents per kilowatt-hour, the total cost to run the trap for the entire mosquito season is less than 2 dollars
  • safe – UL approved, watertight cable connections
  • high capture rates

To put it simply, we use an imitation of artificial human odor designed to last up to two months, which is available in the trap, so by following the recommendations of his placement, and by doing different location tests, you will get impressive catching rates!

The addition of the low-cost, passive BG-GAT trap to the highly effective BG-Mosquitaire suction trap adds another dimension to your control effort: While the BG-Mosquitaire targets mosquitoes that are seeking a bloodmeal-host, the BG-GAT targets mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs.

Each egg-laying female that is trapped can eliminate 50-100 offspring from the next generation and prevent the potential for disease transmission from virus-infected mosquitoes. Therefore, the use of two BG-GATs in combination with one high-catch-rate BG-Mosquitaire is the ideal solution for your backyard tiger mosquito control.

BG-GAT (you will get 2 of them):

  • low cost
  • easy to set up and use
  • no power supply and attractant required
  • targets mosquitoes that are seeking a place to lay their eggs

 First of all, you need to know if you have Tiger or Yellow fever Mosquitoes or other species?

The placement of the mosquito trap is an important factor to ensure high catch rates.
Therefore, it is best to test different locations!

Positioning

  • The placement of the traps is very important. A humid, shady, and wind-protected location is very attractive to mosquitoes. Also, the visual cues of the traps attract mosquitoes from some distance. Thus, the traps need to be placed in a shady, humid place where it is readily visible but protected from wind and direct rain. There should be a minimum of 12 inches between the top of the trap and any overhanging vegetation.

    Effect

    For efficient and sustainable mosquito control it is necessary to avoid competition between the BG-GAT trap and other breeding sites. Therefore, remove or empty competing for breeding sites, such as flower pots, vases, buckets, water barrels, rain gutters, discarded cups and bottles, and plants that hold small quantities of water.

    If the traps are positioned correctly and used continuously throughout the season, they will help to decrease the mosquito population in your backyard

To maximize the control effect, discard or empty all water-holding containers.

     

    Placement of traps diminishes the local mosquito population when

    • correctly positioned
    • continuously operated (24 hours a day throughout the mosquito season)
    • operation begins early in the season

    Examples of areas that can be protected by traps

    • backyards and gardens
    • outdoor cafés and restaurants
    • hotel outdoor areas
    • campgrounds
    • facilities for outdoor sports and recreation

    Correct positioning and application are important factors for an effective mosquito control

    Only if the traps have the correct positioning and run continuously throughout the mosquito season, they will efficiently and permanently decrease the mosquito population.

    There are some rules for the optimum positioning of the trap. However, please consider that every region has different mosquitoes, and every property its own, often unique characteristics. Therefore: In order to find the best position, and to get the highest catch rates, test different locations!

    Generally we recommend

    Don’ts

    Do not place the trap into the sun.Do not place the trao in windy areas.

    Dos

    Place the trap in areas with high humidity, e.g. near rain barrels and puddles.Place the trap near or into shrubs and bushes.Place the trap in shady areas.The trap should be put out when the daytime temperature has risen over 15°C (60°F)

    No sunny location ; No windy areas ; Humidity ; Shrubs ; Shadow

    Never place the mosquito trap in sunny areas.Never place the mosquito trap in windy areas.

    Resting areas of mosquitoes can also be areas with higher humidity.Shady areas are a good place to position the mosquito traps.Shrubs and bushes are a good place to position the mosquito trap.

    When

    The trap should be put out when the average temperature has risen above 15° C (60° F). Above this temperature, adult mosquitoes fly actively. It is best to catch the mosquitoes now, before they have a chance to reproduce and lay their eggs. It is important to make sure that the ventilator of the trap runs 24 hours a day.

    Where

    The goal is to catch the mosquitoes before they reach you. Therefore, it is important to choose a position near the resting areas of the mosquitoes. During the day, mosquitoes spend their rest periods in shady, wind-protected hedges or shrubs. If you place the trap here, you can catch the mosquitoes before they reach and bite you.

    Many bushes form a hollow room on the inside. This is an ideal location for the trap if it provides enough space, both for the air currents and for the visibility of the trap.

    Many bushes form inside a cave, that is ideal for the trap and also provides enough space - for the air currents as well as for the visibility of the visually attracting signals of the trap.

    Do not place the trap directly on the terrace. If you place the trap in shady places or bushes near the terrace, you will catch the mosquitoes near their resting areas, before they reach the terrace and bite you.

    Don't place the trap directly on the terrace. If you place the trap in shady places nearby, you can catch the mosquitoes before they get active again, reach the terrace and bite you.

    Resting locations

    Resting places of mosquitoes can also be locations with higher humidity such as wells, drains, basements, etc. They also like piles of wood where they can hide perfectly.

    Breeding areas

    Breeding areas like damp biotopes, rain barrels, puddles, or flower pods are good indicators for choosing a position.  However, always take care of choosing a position that is protected from the sun and wind!

    Resting areas of mosquitoes can also be areas with higher humidity such as rain barrels, wells, drains, basements, etc.. They also like piles of wood, where they perfectly can hide.

    Here some further examples for bad (left) and good (right) positioning of the mosquito trap:

    This example shows a bad and a good positioning for the mosquito traps: The bad positioning directly on the terrace in the sun, the good positiong in the shady shrubs.

    To protect your pets from mosquitoes, don’t place the trap directly beside the hutch, but a few meters beside it.

    To protect your pets from mosquitoes, don’t place the trap directly beside the hutch, but a few meters beside it.

    Heavy rainfall

    The trap will not be affected by rainfall, yet a sheltered position has positive effects on the catch rate. Naturally sheltered positions are, for example, under trees or shrubs, or any other covered area.

    Even though heavy rainfall does not damage the trap, there are negative effects of it that might decrease the catch rate:

    • Mosquitoes avoid rain, and prefer sheltered positions. Hence, in sheltered positions the catch rate can be higher.
    • Heavy rainfall might disrupt the airflow by clogging the pores of the cover. This causes a reduction in the suction power of the ventilator, and also a reduction of the catch rate. Therefore, ensure that the trap is sheltered from heavy rainfall.

    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.

      ended my mosquito worries

      Even though I'm usually not bothered by mosquitos, they've been a real nuisance this year. My yard was an especially dangerous place to be as the mosquitoes would swarm me and bite every inch of exposed skin. The Mosquitaire trap ended my mosquito worries in just 2-3 months! It quickly drew them away from me so that even when I did get bit it wasn't for long periods like before - thanks you guys!

      not a single mosquito could get near me

      The Mosquitaire is the wonder that re-claimed my yard and not a single mosquito could get near me. My previous trap caught some as well, but they didn't have much effect like this one did!

      their numbers were noticeably reduced

      So many mosquitos! It was hard for me to enjoy my yard until I installed the BG-Mosquitaire traps. The mosquito population in my area is particularly high because it's so humid here, but after installing these three effective devices around my property I found that though they still came by occasionally, their numbers were noticeably reduced.

      Highly effective

      We live next to a creek and in the summer it is unbearable being outside because of the sheer amount of mosquitoes. We had a company come and spray our yard every 2 weeks last year but still we had lots of mosquitoes bothering us. So I thought I'd try these traps instead. So far I am super impressed. Especially the Mosquitaire caught so many mosquitoes already and makes it pleasant being outside. No mosquito bite this far. Will be ordering more traps to cover our full yard.

      The Mosquitaire did its job

      I used to get bites while just trying to walk up the stairs, and would spend hours fighting them off. After I installed all three traps, my yard was mine again! It really seemed like The Mosquitaire did its job in drawing those mosquitoes away from me.
