published on 05. Mar 2020

Regensburg, Germany, March 5, 2020:

Biogents AG, mosquito trap manufacturer, is proud to announce its latest development of a new trap for mosquito monitoring and control: the BG-Pro. Based on a modular concept, it includes Biogents versions of the established EVS (Encephalitis Virus Surveillance) trap and CDC (Centers of Disease Control) light trap, as well as an upgraded version of Biogents’ BG-Sentinel trap. The new product is a recognition of market requests for Biogents to develop other styles of monitoring traps to the same standard as the BG-Sentinel.

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.

The mosquito control and monitoring world is changing: Smart traps are here!

published on 19. Jun 2019

Smart Traps: An Introduction

Nowadays, the word “smart” before any product is no longer foreign terminology. There are smart phones, smart watches, smart TVs, smart homes, smart cities – just about anything you can think of can be “smart”, but what exactly are smart traps? A rough definition could be a trap containing some sort of electronic device with magical software that collects and evaluates data and then transfers this data to a place where it can be easily accessed with another “smart” device, but don’t quote us on that. The first smart traps to be commercialized were most likely in the rodent control field with smart rat traps currently being a hot product in the pest control industry. Smart insect traps have also been popping up over the last several years, especially in the agriculture industry, but smart mosquito traps are something new.
