The Story of the
BugJammer Mosquito Trap

The BugJammer electronic insect control device was invented in 2000. Based on the use of a low frequency dog or human heart beat sound and visual cues to attract biting insects, it is highly effective at attracting and capturing a wide range of biting flies. In addition to low frequency sound, in certain situations, a secondary signal such as heat, carbon dioxide or a chemical lure can be added to enhance mosquito capture. Flying insects attracted by the sound and visual cues, alight on the resonator cap and are captured on a glue sleeve cover. Field tests show the range of attraction to be in excess of 1,000 feet in all directions as long as there was no interference from buildings or vegetation. See study by Tracey L. Tam at CMAVE. (see below)

The non-toxic glue is a special blend able to hold insects that land with a very light touch, such as mosquitoes. It is interesting to note that number and species of mosquitoes vary depending on the type of heart beat sound employed. A low voltage unit, with sound, heat and visual cues is manufactured in the United States for use against for mosquitoes and is sold as BugJammer Home and Garden unit.

Multiple laboratory, field, university and USDA tests demonstrate that the heartbeat frequency sound can be an importance component in capturing mosquitoes. Unlike cheap ultra-sonic repelling devices, the heartbeat sound has been confirmed to be highly effective by the US Department of Agriculture (see below)
