When used in combination with Biogents proprietary artificial human scent, the BG-Lure, the BG-Sentinel is an excellent monitoring trap for yellow fever mosquitoes, their realtives from the genus Stegomyia, and other anthropophilic species. The BG-Lure releases an artificial skin odour (a proprietary combination of ammonia, lactic acid, and caproic acid) in a finely tuned ration similar to that of human skin. A version of the artificial scent which gives off smaller quanities of the active ingredients that mimicks human body odor is called Sweetscent.
Due to a new formulation of our artificial scents, we were able to significantly increase the effectiveness of our BG-Lure as well as of the Sweetscent.
