This conference has 11 sessions, which include all aspects of mosquito control.

At our booth, we will present our mosquito traps, with emphasis on two kinds of traps for mosquito control organisations. One version, the BG-Mosquitaire CO2 works with CO2 and is suitable against all mosquitoes, including tiger mosquitoes. The other trap, the BG-GAT is suitable for tiger mosquitoes and targets gravid Aedes mosquitoes (GAT = Gravid Aedes Trap). Combined in the "2+1" concept, they can help to effectively control mosquito populations on private properties.

At our booth you can also win a “2+1”- set (one BG-Mosquitaire CO2 plus two BG-GATs)!

We look forward to informing you about the full line of Biogents traps and high-tech tools such as the BG-Counter.

We will also give two presentations:
