Mid 2017 Biogents AG decided to open a daughter company in Southeast Asia to promote its mosquito traps, and starts bringing the traps to the attention of the Southeast Asian end-consumer market. Biogents SEA is situated in Siem Reap, Cambodia, and is fully licensed and registered with the Cambodian authorities.
Biogents SEA works solely through licensed PCOs (Pest Control Operators) and has already started expanding the network of agents and distributors in the Southeast Asian region at large.
Many contacts were created in a short while with, for the time being, an emphasis on tourism related activities like the hotel- and restaurant sector.
Needless to say that in the Southeast Asian tropical climate one finds a lot of mosquitoes, and so far our traps have seen spectacular catches of up to 60–70.000 mosquitoes over four-day periods.
Sales have started taking off. Not only in the tourism sector but to private households as well.

Last week, Microsoft announced that it was developing a similar mosquito trapping system, indicating that the demand for such intelligent mosquito traps is great and will continue to grow in the future. Globally, mosquitoes are considered among the creatures most dangerous to humans. Hundreds of thousands of people die each year from mosquito-borne diseases. Biogents AG, headquartered in the Bavarian city of Regensburg, has a prominent position in this promising market. For example, Biogents traps are considered the gold standard for yellow fever and Asian tiger mosquitoes around the world. No wonder since they are based on more than twenty years of intensive research and development.
Whether the Microsoft traps will be comparable to those made by Biogents remains to be seen. “Microsoft wants to develop traps into some kind of flying laboratories that are supposed to solve every issue related to mosquito monitoring in one fell swoop. Our experience shows that it’s better to establish effective technologies step-by-step and integrate them over time,” says Dr. Geier. Most importantly: Before mosquitoes can be analyzed and counted, they first must be attracted and trapped. When it comes to this essential detail, Biogents leads the field. Their particularly efficient traps are used by public health authorities and scientists worldwide. Even the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends using Biogents’ BG-Sentinel traps as a monitoring tool in the fight against Asian tiger mosquitoes and yellow fever mosquitoes. Both these mosquitoes can also transmit dengue, the Zika virus, and the chikungunya viruses, and are therefore considered particularly dangerous. According to the CDC, BG-Sentinel traps are currently the mosquito traps most commonly used to catch adult tiger mosquitoes. The field trials of the BG-Counter on the Florida Keys were very successful. 80-90% of the trapped mosquitoes are correctly identified and counted. “Other mosquito-fighting organisations have indicated their interest in these new counters,” says Geier. Since February, Biogents has joined forces with Irideon SL in Spain and the Technological Educational Institute of Crete to further develop the BG-Counter’s sensors. The aim: to distinguish different mosquito species caught in the trap, and to identify those that are especially problematic as potential disease vectors. This project called REMOSIS (Remote Mosquito Situation and Identification System) is being funded by the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. Researchers around the world will then be able to track carriers of disease and invasive species even more accurately than ever before. Read more »
