Biogents’ mosquito trap BG-Home is a high-performance and eco-friendly indoor trap that targets tiger mosquitoes and other flying pest insects in the house.
The trap is especially attractive to the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever (or dengue) mosquito (Aedes aegypti). Both are not only annoying, but can also carry diseases like dengue fever, chikungunya, or Zika. They are found in subtropical and tropical regions worldwide. In addition, the Asian tiger mosquito occurs in much of the Mediterranean.
The combination of visual cues, artificially generated air plumes and an artificial scent that mimics human skin allows the trap to effectively imitate a human being and to attract the mosquitoes.
The artificial human scent (BG-Homescent) is released from a sachet that is placed inside the trap. The BG-Homescent is effective for one month; then it must be replaced.
A heated surface at the top of the trap provides an additional attractive stimulus. Last, but not least, the black color of the trap is also visually attractive to mosquitoes. Approaching mosquitoes are captured with the help of a fan and drawn into the base of the trap where they dehydrate.
Other indoor insect pests can be attracted by the option to switch on UV lights.
A transparent window allows you to monitor the catch and see when it is time to empty the trap.
Without toxic ingredients
The artificial scent and trap design are internationally patented. The trap does not require carbon dioxide, propane, butane, or other flammable gases and uses no toxic chemicals.
The Biogents trap system - stronger together
Biogents recommends using the BG-Home in combination with the outdoor traps(BG-MosquitaireandBG-GAT trap). Both outdoor traps complement each other in an ideal way since they target tiger mosquitoes of different stages.
If you are mainly bothered by other than tiger mosquitoes, e.g., house or flood mosquitoes, we recommend using outdoors exclusively the BG-Mosquitaire trap in combination with CO2and theBG-Booster CO2.

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.
