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! (believe me, I spent 6 days without eating, including 5 in a hospital because a mosquito had transmitted dengue ... not funny at all ... fortunately not in US). - 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 17 years ago in Germany (all the technical details below and the scientific evidence in the appropriate tab)!
To put it simply, we use an imitation of artificial human odordesigned 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!
First of all, you need to know if you have Tiger Mosquitoes or other species?
This Trap is for Tiger mosquitoes only, if you want to catch every species of mosquitoes, please buy the CO2 trap HERE
Don't let the mosquitoes Trap You inside!
"Hello, my husband bought the BG unit that attracts Asian tiger mosquitos and it is working so well after 2 weeks, that I felt confident to post it on Facebook and nextdoor.com [...]I believe in your cause and would love to see the broadcast spraying be banned. Thank you!!"

Another one in Iowa counted the mosquitoes trapped... and the trap get 1522 mosquitoes in 48H! True story, thanks Jud!
About the coverage area: The Standard trap (this one, without CO2) cover about 538 to 1 076 square feet and the CO2 Trap HERE about 1 076 to 6 456 square feet.
There are many different criteria which have an influence on thecatching 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 on the forefront of mosquito control research with an excellent reputation.
Their products have been proven in Europe for 16 years. Biogents has decided in 2018 to sell their products to the Americans. "Testing Biogents, means saying goodbye to mosquitoes!"
The trap provides
high capture rates –over 300 scientific publications report using Biogents trap to collect tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes is very effective
specificity– traps mainly mosquitoes, not other insects such as butterflies, moths and beetles
natural compounds– uses only compounds that are also found on human skin
If the traps are correctly positioned and run continuously throughout the season, they will effectively decrease the mosquito population, and you can enjoy your patio again.
The BG-Mosquitaire comes as a bundle of two products, the trap and the mosquito attractant: Our 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 placement of the mosquito trap is an important factor to ensure high catch rates. Therefore, it is best to test different locations!
traps should be used outdoors
traps should be placed in shady, wind-protected and humid places, near resting sites of mosquitoes
do not place the trap close to the terrace/patio and not in direct sunlight!
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 best results.
To maximize the control effect, discard or empty all water-holding containers.

safe – UL approved, water tight cable connections
high capture rates
When ordering both the trap and the attractant, you get everything you need to begin catching tiger mosquitoes:

Scientific studies on our traps
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.
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.
Look at our FAQ Frequently Asked Questions page too!
It's definitely catching the Asian tiger mosquitos. Initially I had the intake pipe installed upside down, because that's the way it came in the package. The manual that came with it was for an older model, so that didn't address the spout installation. Even when it was upside down, it was still catching mosquitos though, I just couldn't figure out why the door kept closing. Once I installed the intake correctly, it worked fine. It survived one surprise thunderstorm with a heavy down pour, while I was at work. I try to move it to a sheltered location when I know it's going to rain.
It Really Works!
Great overall trap that targets the tigger mosquitos. Started catching mosquitos on the first day of set up. Set up was easy once I figured out that the intake I received was the new style intake with a shutter. The shutter closes when power is off or you temporarily lift / remove the intake/bag to view your catch for the day. Install the intake with shutter on the outside / on top; not inside and you will be good to go. Happy catching!
I am very pleased with my new mosquito trap. It is working very well.
This device is more effective than using a backpack sprayer and professional chemicals. The dehydrated mosquitos are so small that they are hard to count but I would estimate that it catches about 50 mosquitos per day. It works better than the Arctic MKS system and costs less to operate.
Great mosquito trap and great customer service
The trap really works, at first I was having issues but Romaine from customer service was able to help me and I am now capturing those pesky tiger mosquitoes about 10+ a day
