Mosquito Traps – BG-Sentinel Mosquito Trap Kits
This innovative mosquito monitoring trap was developed by BioGents GmbH (Germany) specifically designed to be especially attractive for Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti, and Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus. It is also highly effective for a range of other species when used in conjunction with various lures/attractants. Carbon dioxide is not required to catch Aedes aegypti, A. polynesiensis, or A. albopictus, but it can be added as an attractant for other species.
Features of the BG Sentinel Trap:
- Mimics convection currents created by a human body
- Employs attractive visual cues
- Releases artificial skin emanations through a large surface area
- Can be used without CO2 to specifically capture selected mosquito species
- Is an excellent general mosquito trap when used with CO2
The trap is large enough to incorporate additional attractants such as fragrant substances, small living animals, worn clothing, animal hairs, light and heat sources, etc. This makes the trap a very versatile tool for both monitoring and research. Intended use is by professionals only.

EBG701 BG-GAT – Gravid Aedes Trap
The BG-GAT (Gravid Aedes Trap) 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 4870, Australia. It is a low-cost, passive trap, which serves as an alternative breeding site and uses water and oviposition cues to attract egg-laying female mosquitoes. Once in the trap, the mosquitoes are collected on a sticky surface and die. The trap is easy to set up, mosquitoes specimens are not damaged, and it does not require a power source or surface spray for operation. The trap is also supplied with 2 x LLINs (Long Lasting Insecticide Nets) that also can be used as an option. To see how the trap operates, see this instruction manual.
