If you are mainly bothered by mosquitoes in the evening, or if you live near flood areas, the reason for the nuisance is most probably not the tiger mosquito, but house or flood mosquitoes.
In this case, it is necessary to add CO2 to the BG-Mosquitaire trap to increase capture rates for these mosquito species. CO2 is an important attractant for all mosquitoes species. CO2 and the BG-Sweetscent work together as synergists. Together they can greatly increase the amount of captured mosquito species and maximize the capture rate (also for tiger mosquitoes). Through our BG-Booster CO2, the CO2 is released from a specialized emitter nozzle which is designed to optimize the dispersal. The release rate corresponds to the rate a small child releases.
With this CO2 upgrade, the coverage area of your BG_MOSQUITAIRE trap will grow from about 538 to 1 076 square feet to about1 076 to 6 456 square feet, so it will benefit even for Tiger mosquitoes
The pressure of the CO2 emission can be adjusted to the local and seasonal mosquito situation with the specialized pressure reducing regulator. We recommend a flow rate of 0.5 kg/day (red marker on the display of the pressure regulator) for normal and high mosquito nuisance.
In order to supply the trap with the CO2 attractant, a commercially available CO2 gas cylinder with six or more kilograms is required. The gas bottle is not included in the contents. The bottle can be acquired or rented at drink retailers or bottle depots for a deposit.
The pressure reducing regulator follows the technical standards valid in the United States of America and has the connection thread CGA32.
Please note: The gas bottle is not included in the contents. The bottle can be acquired or rented at drink retailers or bottle depots for a deposit.
Unfortunately, we cannot sell the BG-Sweetscent lure in California, yet, as the State registration process is currently backlogged. So you can use the trap with this CO2 Booster without sweet scent to catch mosquitoes.
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 isdesigned 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 versionsattract all kinds of species (e.g., Culex). The CO2 version provide a higher catching rate regarding tiger mosquitoes too.
