Biogents mosquito trap “BG-Mosquitaire” is an excellent and eco-friendly tool that has been specifically developed to control Asian tiger mosquitoes and yellow fever mosquitoes. Both are predominantly are predominantly found in subtropical and tropical countries where they can transmit diseases like dengue fever, chikungunya, or Zika. The Asian tiger mosquito also occurs in much of the Mediterranean.
The sturdy plastic trap is designed to be placed in your garden and has been tried and tested worldwide. Place the mosquito trap near the mosquito resting areas and breeding places, thus the trap will catch the mosquitoes before they reach the patio and annoy you.
No trap from other manufacturers offers a comparable combination of
- highest capture rates – scientifically proven
- specificity – does not damage beneficial insects like butterflies, bees, or ladybugs
- and eco friendliness – uses no insecticides
The trap uses the same patented capture technology of all Biogents traps. In contrast to most of the other mosquito species, for the capture of the diurnal tiger and yellow fever mosquito carbon dioxide is not necessary. The addition of the Biogents patented mix of artificial skin emanations (BG-Sweetscent) to the attractive skills of the trap is already sufficient. To the mosquito the trap looks just like a human being. By using the CO2 versions, that is with addition of carbon dioxide (), the trap’s performance of tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes and all other species can be increased further.
The area covered by a trap is about 100 m², dependent on parameters like size of mosquito population, breeding sites, resting places, vegetation, climate and environment etc.
The Biogents Trap System – stronger together
Biogents recommends to use the BG-Mosquitaire trap in combination with a BG-GAT trap for outdoors. Both traps complement each other in an ideal way since they target tiger mosquitoes of different stages. The third component, the BG-Home, captures those tiger mosquitoes that entered your house and also other flying pest insects indoors. The complete Biogents Trap System is available here >
If you are mainly bothered by other than tiger mosquitoes, e.g., house or flood mosquitoes, we recommend to use outdoors exclusively the BG-Mosquitaire trap in combination with CO2 and the BG-Booster CO2.

The trap should be placed outdoors in the yard. Place the trap on the ground near resting sites of the mosquitoes e.g. in shady, wind-protected places with high humidity such as in sparse shrubs.
Do not place the trap directly on the terrace/patio and not in direct sunlight.
The BG-Mosquitaire is rainproof. However, if the trap is exposed to heavy rainfall there are negative effects that might decrease the catch rate, even though heavy rainfall does not damage the trap: Mosquitoes avoid heavy rain and prefer sheltered positions. In sheltered positions the catch rate can be therefore higher. Heavy rain might also disrupt the airflow by clogging the pores of the cover.
The placement of the mosquito trap is an important factor to ensure high catch rates.
Therefore, it is best to test different locations!
Enhance your mosquito control by eliminating breeding sites:
Empty or completely cover rain barrels; remove old tires; empty plant saucers, buckets, and other water holding containers; keep rain gutters clear.
