Trap Accessories

BioGents BG-Lure Attractant

BioGents BG-Lure Attractant

The BG-Lure can be used with the BG Sentinel trap. It consists of a patented combination of three non-toxic substances that imitate a part of the main components of the human skin that mosquitoes are attracted to. This mixture is a result of 16 years of academic research into the host-finding behaviour of mosquitoes at the Zoological Department of the University of Regensburg, Germany. Each BG-Lure guarantees an optimally timed release of the scent into the surrounding area for up to 5 months.
