BioQuip is a U.S. distributor for the Biogents GAT Trap (Gravid Aedes Trap) introduced in 2015.  This economical standing trap was designed to collect gravid Aedes mosquitoes looking for a safe place to oviposit (lay) their eggs after taking a blood meal and resting while their eggs develop.  Female mosquitoes are attracted by a hay infusion scent coming from the bottom of the trap.  Once inside the plastic collecting chamber, mosquitoes try to escape upward through the translucent chamber  where they are exposed to a sticky card, cooking oil, or insecticide and die.

A black screen barrier prevents mosquitoes from reaching the infused water underneath to lay their eggs.  This is a passive trap and therefore no power supply or COČ is needed.

The GAT trap does not include sticky cards, cooking oil, or insecticide.  Suggested  methods for killing the mosquitoes are as follows:

1) New Feature Place a sticky card into the collecting chamber.  As mosquitoes fly around the chamber, they land on and stick to the card. Packages of 20 sticky cards 2797A, coated with a specialized dry adhesive, are sold separately, see below.

2) Spread a thin film of a vegetable cooking oil such as canola on the inside of the chamber.  The oil "wets" the wings of the mosquitoes, making flight impossible.  Using canola or other vegetable oil in spray can form is a convenient way to apply the oil.  Avoid using light or flavored oils such as olive, sesame or walnut oils as they may discourage trap entry.

3) Apply a residual surface spray insecticide to the inner wall of the translucent chamber to kill mosquitoes through contact.  This method should be used only by authorized professionals. Suggestions for insecticide use are included in the instruction manual.  (BioQuip does not sell insecticides.)

This product is ideal for large scale sampling, for determining mosquito population spread, for effective control, and for providing important information to mosquito specialists and control managers.  Weight: 1.3 lb. (600 g); dimensions: 10.6 x 15" (27 x 38 cm).

Please note: The odor of the new plastic used in the trap body may have a repellent effect on mosquitoes.  Biogents recommends storing GAT traps outside with some water for two weeks before using them in the field to eliminate the odor.
