BG Sentinel Trap Manual

The BG Sentinel trap has been specifically designed to be especially attractive for Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti, and Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus. Used in conjunction with various attractants it is also highly effective for a range of other species. The BG Sentinel Trap Kit comes with mains or battery power options.

A result of more than 15 years of academic research into the host-finding of mosquitoes, the BG-Sentinel (a.k.a. the BG trap) is a mosquito trap used by mosquito professionals worldwide for surveillance and research.

The BG Sentinel trap kit includes:

  • Basic BG Sentinel Trap
  • Battery mounting support cable
  • Australian 240 V transformer power supply with 1 meter lead
  • Carry Bag

The BG Sentinel Trap:

  • mimics convection currents created by a human body
  • employs attractive visual cues
  • can be used without CO2 to specifically capture selected mosquito species
  • can be used with CO2 or other attractants to increase species captured

The BG-Sentinel mosquito trap is essentially a collapsible, white fabric container, with a white gauze covering its opening. When erected the diameter is 36 cm and the height is 40 cm. In the middle of the gauze cover, air is sucked into the trap through a black catch pipe by an electrical fan, drawing approaching mosquitoes into a catch bag.

The air then exits the trap through the white gauze, generating ascending currents. These are similar to convection currents produced by a human host, both in its direction, and its geometrical structure.
