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 CO2 US is an excellent trap for all mosquito species and other flying blood-feeding insects. The sturdy plastic trap is designed to be placed on the ground. It uses the same patented capture technology of all Biogents traps with the additional use of pure CO2, which is an attractive key element of human respiration and the most important attractant for blood-feeding insects.

Carbon dioxide (CO2):
CO2 is the most important attractant for the majority of blood-sucking insects. The gas is present in the breath of humans and animals. It is only present in minimal amounts of around 0.04% in the air. Human breath contains about 4%, and an adult human emits approximately one kilogram of carbon dioxide per day.
Biogents suggest CO2 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. The flow rate can be adjusted to the local situation. We recommend a consumption of about 0.5 kg/day. CO2 bottles are available at gas stores and gastronomy suppliers.

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 CO2 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.

 

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 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!

With this CO2 Trap, you will cover bigger areas and catch every species of mosquitoes!

About the coverage area: The CO2 Trap cover about 1 076 to 6 456 square feet.

Don't let the mosquitoes Trap You inside!

A customer from Texas sent us the following video: (After few days)

There are many different criteria that have an influence on the catching rate such as mosquito population, breeding waters, resting places, coppice, climate, surroundings etc... you will find the case study here

At this time, you probably have already purchased your trap, if not, let me talk to you about the brand.

Biogents is an innovative company at the forefront of mosquito-control research with an excellent reputation.

Their products have been proven in Europe for 18 years.

How many mosquitoes did the trap catch?

The BG-Mosquitaire CO2 comes as a bundle of three products with everything you need to begin catching mosquitoes (except the CO2 tank):
1) The BG-Mosquitaire trap, 2 catch bags, 1 funnel net, 1 power supply US unit (1 m cable; NEMA 1, AKA Type A, 12 V), 1 extension cord (10 m)

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

Positioning of Biogents mosquito trap against tiger mosquitoes, the BG-Mosquitaire

Positioning

  • The placement of the BG-Mosquitaire CO2 is an important factor to ensure high catch rates. Therefore, it is best to test different locations!

    The trap should be placed near resting sites and breeding areas of the mosquitoes:
    - in shady, wind-protected places with high humidity, e.g., in sparse shrubs
    - near rain barrels, buckets, discarded tires, natural tree and rock holes, flower pots, standing flower vases, plant saucers, or similar containers
    - do not place the trap too close to the terrace/patio and not in direct sunlight!

    To reduce the mosquito population, it is important to start trapping early in the season. The trap should run continuously throughout the season to achieve the best results.

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

Effect

For efficient and sustainable mosquito control it is necessary to

  • continuously operate the trap (24 hours a day for the entire mosquito season)
  • begin operating the trap early in the mosquito season

To reduce the mosquito population, it is important to start trapping early in the season. The trap should run continuously throughout the season to achieve the best results.

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

The 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

 

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 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.

      Great trap

      I had been using DYNATRAP for 3 years which worked quite well. A friend told me about this trap that catches all species of mosquitoes. And in 3 weeks of use, the bag is already full!
      It's barely February but the mosquitoes are already there!
      Quick delivery. Thanks

      With much scepticism I decided to try the Biogen co2 mosquito trap because I was in search of a trap which you did not need chemicals. Although, it was somewhat of a hassle dealing with the Co2 tank, so far the trap is worth the money. Less than 24 hrs after setting it up it trapped approximately fifty mosquitoes. Each day I checked the trap there were one hundred or more trapped mosquitoes. I bought a couple more of the traps because i have a good size backyard. I only recommend the trap with co2, the others don't work as well.

      Actually works!

      I've tried several fan traps and they all seem to catch lots of moths and other harmless bugs but no mosquitoes. With this trap (including the CO2 attachment) I'm catching probably 10-20 of our Washington DC mosquitoes per day. This is during September; I imagine that during Summer the catch rate will be higher. What remains to be seen is whether this catch rate is enough to noticeably reduce our mosquito population over time. After just a couple of weeks it hasn't made any difference, but I suppose the idea is that it takes a couple of months to make a dent.

      The trap is easy to set up and is thoughtfully designed with things like a spare catch net.

      A 20 pound CO2 tank costs about $30 to refill, which will get a little expensive over time. However assuming the trap solves our mosquito problem that's still cheaper than having our yard sprayed every month, which hasn't worked anyway.

      Overall based on my first couple of weeks with it I'm optimistic about this trap.

      The Most Effective Mosquito Trap money can buy

      I've been researching Mosquito solutions for the past 2 years, since we moved to our new house Westcheter county, NY. Our kids get eaten alive during the summer, especially by the daytime biting asian tiger mosquito. I started off very much an amateur, purchasing cheaper traps, zappers, and commercial spraying. None of these were effective. I then started investigating more expensive solutions, such as the Mosquito Magnet and SkeeterVac, and different attractants like Octenol. I came across Biogents while reading a field study of the effectiveness of different traps. Soon I realized, there are published study after study indicating the BG-Mosquitaire outperformed all other traps, and the BG Sweetscent outperformed all other attractants. I finally bit the bullet and forked over the cash, and I've never been so happy. I caught 500 mosquito in the first week (which is alot for our suburban property), and another 500 the next week. I look forward to going outside every night around 9pm and checking my catch. Be sure to get the C02 as it increases your catch 5x. Set the C02 level high; 1.5 bars. I bought the Biogents C02 timer so I don't waste it overnight or during the hot daylight hours. Again, I couldn't be happier, and I couldn't recommend Biogents trap and attractant more.

      Had serious doubts, but it is incredible!

      I live outside Dallas TX. Our property is surrounded by a large nature preserve with creeks, ponds and wetlands. Consequently, we have a serious mosquito problem. Sitting outside in late afternoon to night was impossible. Even almost completely submerged in the pool, we were constantly bothered by mosquitos. We really didn't want to spray because of the nature preserve. My son told me about the Biogents CO2 trap. I had serious doubts, but decided to give it a try. WOW. I'm very impressed. After the first few days, the "catch count" has gone down, but the control is amazing. Neither my wife nor I have had a single bite since we started using the trap. We can now enjoy our yard, pool and nature in the afternoon, evening and even night swims without mosquitos! Yes, it is expensive. Yes CO2 can be a bit of a pain to deal with (our local beer store does do tank swaps - actually for less than getting "fills" at the fire extinguisher company). These factors are minor compared to a MOSQUITO-FREE yard and pool. Highly recommend the Biogens CO2 trap!
