Biogents develops and distributes highly efficient, eco-friendly, sustainable and affordable mosquit Biogents mosquito traps are the result of more than 16 years of research in the behaviour of mosquitoes.
Our mosquito traps are especially effective against yellow fever and tiger mosquitoes. The superior efficiency is proven in many independent scientific studies. Without using insecticides, we developed an ecoresponsable way for pest and vector management. Additionally we perform contract R&D worldwide. Biogents. Science for your Protection.
West Nile Virus (WNV) is re-emerging in Europe, and cases increased particularly during the last decade.
Fortunately, a WNV infection is not a problem for most people, as 8 out of 10 infected don’t develop symptoms. According to Centers for Diseases Control and Prevention (CDC), about 1 in 5 infected develop the following symptoms: fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, rash, vomiting, diarrhea. However, WNV can also lead to serious, neurologic illness in about 1 per 150 infected, and some of these cases are fatal. The main victims are people with a weakened immune system, such as elderly persons or people with pre-existing illness.
A newly published study had a more detailed look at West Nile virus outbreak in Andalusia (Spain) in 2020 and the results showed that continuous mosquito monitoring can predict human infections well.
Our mosquito traps are used worldwide not only for mosquito control but also for mosquito monitoring. In the course of this study, our CO2 mosquito traps were used.

In the meantime, there are also scientific methods to study the tiny brains of mosquitoes in more detail.
We know from nature that there are differences between the sexes of animals not only in characteristics such as body size, coloration or the development of weapons, but also in behavior.
Mosquitoes show very pronounced sex-specific behavior, which makes them an optimal group to study the extent to which there is a structural basis in the brain here.
Both male and female mosquitoes feed on nectar, but female mosquitoes require blood meals in addition to producing their eggs. Since it is this behavior of ingesting blood meals that plays a major role in the transmission of disease, it is of particular scientific interest to explore in more detail what brain activities underlie this.
This newly published study provides new insights into how sex-specific behavior is related to differences in brain structure, while revealing the likely location of the fine neural circuits that control male- and female-specific behaviors, which is of particular interest for mosquito control.

After our success story on the island of Soneva in the Maldives, the Philippines now follows. Instead of regular spraying of insecticides, the island relies on the area-wide use of our mosquito traps.

Our mosquito traps are tested and used for field studies worldwide. That's why there are more than 400 publications writing about our mosquito traps in the field.
Originally, we mainly supplied the professional researcher market with traps and thus made a name for ourselves worldwide.
Our well-known BG-Sentinel trap has become the gold standard in tiger mosquito monitoring over the years.
As we are constantly researching and developing, we have developed the BG-Pro mosquito trap as a successor model, which is now also being used in more and more studies.
The images are from a newly published study from the south of Brazil.

We celebrated 20 years of Biogents last Friday. 🎉🎊
We all still have a smile on our face. Beautiful location, sunshine and happy people - it couldn‘t get any better than this.
Magic moments with magic people! ✨
We are so proud to have come this far and to still have so many people by our side - after so many years.
We look forward to many more years with you! 🙌
Have you ever wondered how mosquitoes originate and evolve?
You can find all the information on our website.
Here we have also collected for you all further information about different mosquito species.
The detection of a yellow fever mosquito in Marseille highlights a possible pathway of introduction of such invasive mosquito species into Europe and illustrates the importance of a rapid response to implement appropriate measures to manage and control these mosquito species.
This yellow fever mosquito was likely introduced by a merchant ship from tropical Africa to Europe.
This shows the importance of establishing a surveillance system for invasive mosquitoes at entry points, including ports.

In relation to our project in the Maldives, a scientific study has now been published.
Through the area-wide use of our mosquito traps on the island of Soneva in the Maldives, it was shown that in combination with breeding site control, a sustainable reduction of the mosquito population by 93 to 98% could be achieved over a period of 1.5 years.
The scientific data base and evaluation on this could show that this approach is the first affordable and environmentally friendly alternative to insecticides in decades to control mosquito-borne diseases on smaller islands.

Here you can see an extraordinary mosquito catch within 2 weeks in the south of France from one of our customers.
Our BG-GAT mosquito traps are low-cost, non-electric and easy to use mosquito catchers that were especially developed to help you reduce tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes in your backyard. These species are day biters, very aggressive, and can transmit diseases like dengue fever, Zika, and chikungunya.
In comparison to our other outdoor mosquito trap, it targets not the mosquitoes that want to bite you but the ones which are searching for a place to lay their eggs.
Trapping these ones can eliminate 50-100 offspring per mosquito and therefore helps you reduce the mosquito population in your garden.
Why are some people more attractive to mosquitoes than others?
People attractive to mosquitoes are more acidic than others.
Mosquitoes could reliably distinguish a highly attractive person from a weakly attractive person, unless the smell of the "mosquito magnet" is considerably diluted.
So it's all about human skin odor.
That's why our attractant BG-Sweetscent used in our mosquito traps mimics human skin scent.

We at Biogents enjoy a very relaxed atmosphere with each other and stand for flat hierarchies.
Of course, in addition to joint lunch and coffee breaks, we also value regular joint team outings very highly.
This gives our employees the opportunity to exchange ideas away from the daily office routine and to get to know each other better on a private level. Employees from different departments can exchange ideas with each other and cooperation is positively influenced in the long term.
Apart from open communication in a relaxed atmosphere, we all need a nice break from everyday life. 💆♂️💆♀️
Controlling mosquitoes can be a very complex issue.

What body parts do the mosquito species Aedes aegypti and Anopheles arabiensis prefer to bite? And is there a difference in the distribution of bites between standing and lying body positions?
Interesting study to generate information for personal protection measures against malaria and dengue vectors:
Interestingly, yellow fever mosquito bites were not as concentrated on the lower limbs of standing subjects as were Anopheles mosquito bites. (47.7% to 95.9%)
In sleeping subjects, the distribution of bites was more similar. Here, the bites of both mosquito species were distributed relatively evenly over all exposed body surfaces.
What is so special about our traps?
The U.S., German, and French military, numerous mosquito control districts, and public health organizations around the world, including WHO and CDC, use our traps.
Why is that? Effective mosquito control is science.
Our unique trapping system was developed in over 16 years of research. Its efficacy has been confirmed in over 400 research papers by scientists and other experts throughout the world. Biogents traps are proven to be among the best ones on the market. Besides the functionality, color as well as size, design and the attractant play an important role. Once the mosquitoes have been lured by the attractants, they will be sucked into the trap where a catch bag awaits them.
