Is Mosquito Control a Governmental or Public Responsibility?

Neighbors helping neighbors control public mosquito problems? Isn’t that the responsibility of governmental and public health authorities? Isn’t that a part of what we are paying them for? Well, if you ask any public health authority, they will most likely tell you that the ultimate responsibility of urban mosquito control lies with the private individual themselves or the property owner in eliminating and preventing mosquito breeding in the first place. On the other hand, eliminating breeding sites on properties alone is not going to solve any public mosquito problem. While the US has developed one of the most comprehensive and effective mosquito control industries in the world, National Geographic has described it as, “… [being] conducted by a crazy quilt of local districts that are dependent on cities and counties for funding and personnel” and “… [an] unorganized patchwork that could leave the United States vulnerable to rapidly expanding epidemics.”

Press release: Catching mosquitoes like a pro: Scientists’ gold standard tiger mosquito trap available for home use.

published on 03. Apr 2019

Regensburg, Germany, April 3, 2019 - Scientists were thrilled when Biogents’ BG-Sentinel came out more than 10 years ago: finally, a mosquito trap that really catches yellow fever and tiger mosquitoes! It took not long, and the trap was the gold standard for mosquito pros in governmental organizations, the military, science, and mosquito control organizations worldwide. The unique design combines optical and physical cues with an artificial skin scent (BG-Sweetscent) to attract mosquitoes. And the trap now has a brother that is also available for home owners in the US: the BG-Mosquitaire is a rugged and good-looking version, designed for the continuous use in the garden and backyard. But do the two traps perform equally? A scientific study, just published in the open access Journal of the American Mosquito Control Association, compared the two trap types in California and Louisiana. The result: both traps are equally efficient.

My life as a mosquito magnet.

I do not know how many times I have served as a mosquito magnet when walking, taking a swim at dusk, or attending garden parties - just everywhere - much to the delight of others present. It’s the same story with my dad, and even my daughter has been suffering from mosquito bites since she was born.

Marcy Mosquito celebrates Christmas

published on 22. Dec 2018

Hi, Friends,
I'm Marcy Mosquito, an Asian Tiger Mosquito, or Aedes albopictus, if you want to get all formal. Actually, I'm very pretty to look at. I'm black and have a lot of white stripes like a zebra as well as a long white stripe that starts on my head and runs all the way down my back. But don't call me a zebra mosquito, though; instead, I insist on being called a tiger mosquito. After all, I am also strong and can transmit many dangerous diseases like dengue.
