Mosquitoes use human scents to locate their victim. Using patented technology we have recreated this scent irresistible to mosquitoes. Our artificial BG-Sweetscent is released in a way that mimics a person, so mosquitoes follow the scent plume to the trap. It makes mosquito traps even more attractive for Asian tiger mosquitoes and yellow fever mosquitoes.

The sachet is placed inside the trap and it is effective for up to two months. BG-Sweetscent is to be used with the BG-Mosquitaire (+/- CO2), BG-Home or other traps that attract biting mosquitoes.

The sachet contains a patented formulation based on lactic acid developed by Biogents and mimics human skin scents

How does the trap attract mosquitoes?


The trap imitates the cues of a human body which are attractive for mosquitoes. For the mosquito, the trap looks just like a human being.

  1. Skin scent plume produced by a human
  2. Attractant plume dispersed by the trap

How it works


What exactly is it?

BG-Sweetscent – an artificial odor that mimics scents found on human skin

  • Sachet filled with insecticide-free components attractive for mosquitoes in granular form.
  • Patented formulation based on lactic acid developed by Biogents as a result of 16 years of academic research into the host-finding behavior of mosquitoes.
  • The light and permeable dispenser guarantees an effective release of the scent. All components are of food grade quality.

How to use the BG-Sweetscent in your trap

How it works:
  1. Place the sachet in your trap
  2. The upwards directed air flow of the trap imitates convection currents of a human body and dispenses the artificial human skin scent
  3. To keep the trap‘s performance consistently high, replace the sachet after two months
  4. Tip for the BG-Home indoor trap: Place the bag in fresh air for 2 days before use. The initially strong odor subsides after 2-3 days.

Sophisticated Technology

  • An optimal imitation of human odors
    The arrangement of the active molecules resembles the way that human skin odors are emitted.
  • Ideal odor release
    The attractant is not given off all at once after the package is opened but consistently over time. This is achieved by incorporating the active components into specific polymeres.
  • Measured effect
    The effect of the BG-Sweetscent was measured in numerous studies.
