Description

JOIN FORCES WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS AND DOUBLE THE BENEFITS

Save money while increasing the effectiveness of your BG-GAT mosquito traps

The BG-GAT (Gravid Aedes Trap) is a low-cost, non-electric, and easy-to-use outdoor tiger mosquito trap. By imitating a breeding site, the traps help to stop future generations of tiger mosquitoes. To effectively control mosquito populations on a large scale, it is most effective to join forces with neighbors to eliminate mosquito nuisances. The higher the coverage with mosquito traps in a certain area is, the higher the effect of the control will be.
This sustainable trap works without power, the use of insecticides or CO2 and has been tried and tested worldwide.

Development

The BG-GAT trap was developed by Dr. A. E. Eiras from the Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and Dr. S. A. Ritchie from the James Cook University, Cairns, Queensland, Australia. Biogents produces and distributes the trap under a license agreement with both universities.

Placement

FOR MAXIMUM CATCH RATES, THE CORRECT PLACEMENT OF THE TRAP IS ESSENTIAL

In order to get the highest catch rates, test different locations.
The BG-GAT mosquito trap is to be used outdoors in the garden. Place the trap on the ground near resting areas of the mosquitoes, e.g., in shady, wind-protected places with high humidity such as in sparse shrubs. However, the trap should not be too hidden, but still visible. Do not place the trap directly on the terrace/patio and not in direct sunlight.

For an efficient and sustainable mosquito control it is necessary to avoid competition between the BG-GAT trap and other breeding sites: Therefore, remove or empty competing breeding sites, such as flower pots, vases, buckets, water barrels, rain gutters, discarded cups and bottles, and plants that hold small quantities of water.

The perfect imitation of a breeding site

An imitation that will fool any egg-laying tiger mosquito

image

Trap

Visual cues and water plus organic material attract mosquitoes and the mesh prevents them from laying their eggs

image

Sticky Card

Mosquitoes get stuck on the sticky surface while trying to escape

image

Result

Preventing hundreds of their offspring

The trap prevents about 50 to 100 descendants with each captured female!

The trap imitates a breeding site for the mosquitoes to lay their eggs

Our unique capture method

no power supply – no chemicals – no attractant needed
image
This is how it works:
  1. Tiger mosquitoes that want to lay their eggs are attracted by water (preferably with organic material in it, e.g. a leaf or some blades of grass)
  2. The mesh provides a barrier between the mosquitoes and the water to prevent them from laying their eggs
  3. Mosquitoes try to escape through the translucent parts of the trap
  4. By touching the specially developed sticky cards, they get stuck and die
