Multiple designs in one product

  • Changed different styles easily into each other:
    • EVS-style
    • CDC-style
    • Sentinel-style
  • Perfect for all habitats and mosquito species
  • Hanging or standing choice

Designed for use with Biogents attractants, CO2, and light

Biogents attractants: Used with BG-Lure and placed on the bottom, the trap can monitor tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti).

CO2: Used with CO2, it captures all mosquito species.

LED: An LED light can optionally be added.

Low power consumption for longer battery life. Fan can run on 5, 6, or 12 V

Reduced consumption of electricity – the 3 blade ventilator consumes less power and thus increases battery life.

High Quality Fan

  • Very robust, high-quality fan: The fan is so robust that it can even be operated for hours and days in salt water.
  • The fan can run on 5, 6, or 12 V
  • Fan with only 3 blades: If mosquitoes are sucked through the fan, they are less damaged and can be easier identified.

Multiple power options (battery, mains power supply, power bank)

  • The trap can be run on a 6 V (normal suction power) and 12 V (extremely strong suction power) battery. Battery cables included.
  • Additional USB adapter included: with the new USB adapter, commercially available and light-weight power banks (5 V)can be used as power supplies. The power bank can be stowed in a slot on the bottom of the trap body.
  • Power supply (8 m) and extension cords (10 m) are additionally available to run the trap from the mains power supply.

Catch bag above the fan reduces mosquito damage

  • The catch bag is located above the fan so mosquitoes do not pass through the fan. Therefore, the mosquitoes are less damaged and species are easier identified.
  • For trapping extreme large numbers of mosquitoes, the catch bag can be removed and mosquitoes are sucked through the ventilator. The whole trap body serves now as the catch bag.
The catch bag of the BG-Pro can be located above the fan so that mosquitoes do not pass through the fan.   
  • An automatic shutter ensures catch integrity in every situation

Dual-Use Packaging

  • The carrying bag has a dual purpose and can be used as the dry ice container
  • The trap parts fit into each other and are placed compactly into a small bag for transport. Easy to set up, to handle, and to transport.

Biogents Attractants

Improve the traps‘ performance with Biogents attractants, the patented human scent mimics, to increase catch rates for Aedes albopictus and Aedes aegypti (for those species, the traps should be placed on/near the bottom):

  • BG-Lure: 5-month lure
  • BG-Sweetscent: 2-month lure

The attractants can be ordered via our webshop for researchers >
When the Biogents attractants are used in conjunction with CO2, the synergistic effect can multiply the catch rates.

CO2 Upgrade

All trap styles can be upgraded with CO2 to catch all mosquito species including the malaria mosquito Anopheles and to increase catch rates.
There are several possibilities to upgrade the trap with CO2 (click on each line to get more information):

Dry ice

On the right hand, an example for the EVS-style version: The CO2 is stored in the Biogents bag above the trap. Additionally, a power bank can be stored in the bag.

CO2 gas bottle

Biogents offers a CO2 upgrade set (BG-Booster CO2) including pressure regulator for CO2 gas bottles. The BG-Booster CO2 can be ordered via our webshop for researchers >

Yeast fermentation

Performance of the BG-Pro

First field tests show excellent results indicating that the the CDC-style BG-Pro is comparable to the original CDC light trap and that the Sentinel-style BG-Pro is comparable to the BG-Sentinel.
