Bees don’t care about Biogents mosquito traps

Written by Raphaela Reiser May 19th, 2020

Hello my dear friends,

I, Marcy Mosquito, have just found out that May 20 is World Bee Day. And you know what? Those bees have been bothering me for a while.

 I've been observing them for several days now as it seems that they have also become active again and are super busy, doing their pollinating thing. Actually, we're not that different, you know - honey bees collect pollen and we tiger mosquitoes collect a tiny little amount of blood. Why don’t I like bees? I'll tell you in a minute.

Alright, you are probably very familiar with these bees - by the way, there are many different species of them in a variety of colors and sizes. The best known is probably the honeybee which I mentioned earlier. And those chubby, fluffy, loudly buzzing bumble bees also belong to the bees. And you know what - female bees can sting, although they actually only do this in their defense.

Interestingly, in the last couple of days while watching these buzzing animals I discovered that they are not attracted to the mosquito trap. That’s just unbelievable! How can they resist that irresistible human scent that the trap is giving off? Hm, is it because they are not as attracted to humans as we mosquitoes are? In the end it doesn't matter, but I really don't think it's fair that they are not sucked into Biogents' electric mosquito traps, but we are. And of course, you don't place the mosquito trap right next to lavender and other flowering plants, for the bees' sake. Moreover, many bees are probably just too strong and can resist the slight suction created by the trap's fan, unless they are daydreaming a bit. That means you will very unlikely find a bee in your mosquito trap, but instead plentiful mosquitoes of different kinds. Do you think that's fair?

Thinking about that, I have to go and warn my friends. I'm going to start the "Strong Mosquitoes" initiative and open a gym. It's worth a try!

See you soon and stay healthy!

Yours, Marcy Mosquito
