If you are mainly bothered by mosquitoes in the evening, or if you live near flood areas, the reason for the nuisance is most probably not the tiger mosquito, but house or flood mosquitoes.
In this case, it is necessary to add CO2 to the BG-Mosquitaire trap to increase capture rates for these mosquito species. CO2 is an important attractant for all mosquitoes species. CO2 and the BG-Sweetscent work together as synergists. Together they can greatly increase the amount of captured mosquito species and maximize the capture rate (also for tiger mosquitoes).
Through our BG-Booster CO2, the CO2 is released from a specialized emitter nozzle which is designed to optimize the dispersal. The release rate corresponds to the rate a small child releases.The pressure of the CO2 emission can be adjusted to the local and seasonal mosquito situation with the specialized pressure reducing regulator. We recommend a flow rate of 0.5 kg/day (red marker on the display of the pressure regulator) for normal and high mosquito nuisance.
In order to supply the trap with the CO2 attractant, a commercially available CO2 gas cylinder with six or more kilograms is required. The gas bottle is not included in the contents. The bottle can be acquired or rented at drink retailers or bottle depots for a deposit.
