See our products at the AMCA 86th Annual Meeting

published on 28. Feb 2020

+++ ANNOUNCEMENT +++
After much deliberation, Biogents has decided not to attend the AMCA Annual Meeting in Portland, due to the ongoing threats posed by the Corona virus outbreak.
It is unfortunate that this decision has had to be taken as we have always been strong supporters of the AMCA and regular contributors to the Annual Meetings over the years. However, with the numbers of COVID-19 cases increasing in both Europe and the US we feel this is the only course of action.
Our primary concerns are those of a duty of care to our employees and to be able to supply our customers and distributors, both of which could be impacted by contraction and further transmission of the virus and/or extended quarantining of our staff.
Our professional products (the new BG-Pro, the BG-Counter, the BG-Sentinel, and the BG-GAT) will however still be a exhibited at the booth #316 of our distribution partner ADAPCO.

Press release: Boost your trap! How to get rid of Asian tiger mosquitoes more effectively.

published on 17. Apr 2019

Moorefield, WV, April 17, 2019 - Asian tiger mosquitoes (Aedes albopictus) continue to expand their range in the United States and are problematic not only because of their aggressive day-biting behavior, but also as potential vectors of diseases like dengue, Zika and chikungunya. Homeowners often try to protect themselves from the bloodthirsty flying tigers with UV light traps, but the results leave much to be desired. Scientists recently showed how the number of tiger mosquitoes you collect can be greatly increased by adding an artificial human skin scent that is irresistible to the annoying little insects: the BG-Sweetscent. It was developed by Biogents, a German company recognized world-wide by mosquito specialists for their efficient mosquito traps. A team of scientists from Florida, Louisiana, and Germany tested the BG-Sweetscent with six different commercially available mosquito UV light traps. The study was published in the March issue of the Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association, one of the most important scientific journals for mosquito specialists. The result? BG-Sweetscent increases tiger mosquito catch rates in light traps up to 4.2-fold!
