BG-Pro: A Product Line for All Purposes

The BG-Pro for Professionals is Ideal to Collect All Types of Mosquitoes

The BG-Pro was developed to combine functions of different trap types with

  • higher quality parts
  • less energy consumption
  • overall better performance

Three styles are available:

EVS-style

hanging

BG-Pro EVS-style

CDC-style

hanging

BG-Pro CDC-style

Sentinel-style

standing on the ground

BG-Pro Sentinel-Style

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, e.g.:

  • 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
    For information about a technique how to get CO2 from yeast please download this pdf >.

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. More information at http://www.biogents.com/pdf/bbb.pdf

Advantages of the BG-Pro

Collection Bag Above Fan

  • 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.

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 off of 6 or 12V
  • Fan with only 3 blades: If mosquitoes are sucked through the fan, they are less damaged and can be easier identified.

Low Power Consumption

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

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.

Variable Power Sources

  • 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 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.

Automatic Shutter

  • Funnel with integrated shutter: In case power fails, the shutter closes automatically, preventing the captured mosquitoes from escaping.
