Biogents BG-GAT (Gravid Aedes Trap) is a low-cost and easy to use tool that can help you reduce the Asian tiger (Aedes albopictus) and yellow fever mosquito (Aedes aegypti) population in your backyard. These species are day active, very aggressive and can transmit diseases like dengue fever, Zika, and chikungunya. Important for the effectiveness of the trap is to reduce competitive breeding sources.

In comparison to the BG-Mosquitaire trap, it targets a different stage of the mosquitoes: Those mosquitoes that have already bitten and are now searching for a place to lay their eggs which are only a small percentage of those that are host-seeking. Therefore, the BG-GAT catches naturally less mosquitoes than the BG-Mosquitaire.

The big advantage of this trap version is that it is passive, which means it does not require power or supplemental attractants like CO2 or chemical lures. This provides great flexibility in deployment and easiness in handling. Also, especially these females that are targeted with the BG-GAT, can be dangerous, as they might carry a virus and could produce about 50 – 100 descendants.

The BG-GAT uses water and oviposition cues to attract female Asian tiger and yellow fever mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs. Once in the trap, the mosquitoes are exposed to a sticky surface and die.

Placement:

A humid, shady, and wind-protected location is very attractive to mosquitoes. Also, the black color of the BG-GAT attracts mosquitoes from some distance. Thus, the trap needs to be placed at a shady, humid place where it is readily visible, but protected from wind and direct rain.

Effect:
For 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.

If the traps are positioned correctly and used continuously throughout the season, they will help to decrease the mosquito population in your backyard.

The addition of the low-cost, passive
BG-GAT trap to the highly effective BG-Mosquitaire suction trap adds another dimension to your control effort: While the BG-Mosquitaire targets mosquitoes that are seeking for a bloodmeal-host, the BG-GAT targets mosquitoes that are looking for a place to lay their eggs. Therefore, the use of 2 BG-GATs in combination with 1 BG-Mosquitaire is the ideal solution which we highly recommend.
