BG-GAT Trap - Set of 12 Passive Gravid Aedes Trap

  • Now improved! The BG-GAT2 is a new version of the original BG-GAT1 with improvements such as a central overflow.

    Biogents’ passive BG-GAT (Gravid Aedes Trap) attracts female Aedes (Stegomyia) mosquitoes with water and ovipositioning cues. These mosquito species are vectors of diseases such as dengue fever, Zika, chikungunya, or yellow fever.

    Female mosquitoes are attracted by water and ovipositioning cues and enter the transparent chamber through the funnel. Once in the chamber mosquitoes try to escape through the translucent part where they are exposed to a sticky surface, oil or insecticides. The transparent chamber hinders the mosquitoes‘ ability to escape and the black mesh net provides a barrier between mosquitoes and the infused water as well as retains dead mosquitoes without damaging them.

    The BG-GAT is ideal for surveillance programs of Asian tiger and dengue mosquitoes or for mass trapping in combination with suction traps >
