BG Mosquito Trap


This sturdy Biogents mosquito trap is designed to be placed in your garden or backyard and has been tested worldwide. The mosquito trap should be placed near mosquito resting areas such as shrubs and dense vegetation and away from decks and patios. This way, the trap will catch the mosquitoes before they reach the patio and you.

Placement is very important for success.  To maximize the effectiveness of the trap, it is important to also remove any water holding containers in the yard that could potentially support the development of mosquito larvae.

The “BG-Mosquitaire” mosquito trap is an effective tool that has been specifically developed to control Asian tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes. These invasive species have become significant pests and potential disease vectors throughout much of the southern half of the United States from California to New York. Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquitoes (Aedes aegypti) are predominantly found in subtropical and tropical countries where they can transmit diseases like dengue fever, chikungunya, or Zika.

Placement of mosquito traps can diminish the local mosquito population when:

  • Correctly positioned
  • Continuously operated (24 hours a day throughout the mosquito season)
  • Operation begins early in the season


Areas that can be protected by mosquito traps include:

  • Backyards and gardens
  • Outdoor cafes and restaurants
  • Hotel/Motel outdoor areas
  • Campgrounds
  • Public Parks
  • Outdoor sports and recreation areas
  • Anywhere groups of people gather


A single fan sucks the attracted mosquitoes into a catch bag below the black suction column of the trap. The air stream is then diverted and exits the trap through the white upper surface made of plastic. This air stream mimics the typical scent plume that is produced by a warm human body. To the mosquitoes the trap looks just like a human being.

The contrast between the dark center and the light surface of the trap is an additional important attractive signal for the mosquitoes, and completes the capture method.

A scent dispenser inside the trap enriches the air stream with small amounts of substances similar to those produced by the human skin. These substances act as synergists to enhance the attractiveness of the traps. 

Carbon dioxide (optional), in the form of dry ice or bottled gas, can be added to the air stream in order to increase the variety of species collected, and maximize the capture rate. Typically, the level of CO2 released corresponds to the amount exhaled by a young child.


Trap Placement:

  • Traps should be used outdoors
  • Traps should be placed in shady, wind-protected and humid places, near resting sites of mosquitoes
  • Continuously operate the trap (24 hours a day for the entire mosquito season)
  • Begin operating the trap early in the mosquito season
