Mosquitoes can identify and locate humans from quite a distance using carbon dioxide and skin scent cues. The Biogents BG-Sweetscent Mosquito Attractant is an articifial scent that has been carefully blended to replicate the balance of components in human skin scent. BG-Sweetscent mixes ammonia, lactic acid and caproic acid in quantities that provide an excellent emission profile that is particularly attractive to tiger mosquitoes (disease vectors for pathogens such as Yellow fever virus and dengue fever) and is effective without an additional carbon dioxide lure for catching tiger mosquitoes. For all other species it should be used in conjunction with CO2. Biogents BG-Sweetscent comes in waterproof sachets that have a membrane across which the vapours diffuse and will provide a controlled release of the attractant for 2 months. The sachets do not need to be opened to use them and the attractant remains protected from rain, humidity and light inside.
Non toxic but irritating to eyes and skin.
Effective on the following species without carbon dioxide:
* Aedes aegypti, Aedes albopictus, Aedes polynesiensis
* Culex quinquefasciatus and other species from the Culex pipiens complex
