Kuala Lumpur, 16 July 2014 – Rangkaian Bekalan Sdn Bhd ( RBSB ) has spawned a first point in the “Jalur Komuniti Sentinel” programme, namely the assignment of an Aedes BG Sentinel trap, as a social service assistance to eradicate the Dengue outbreak by trapping the Aedes mosquitoes.

The assignment ceremony was held at PPR Desa Tun Razak, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur, where a unit of BG Mosquitaire was handed over to the Resident Committee. The attainable goal of this initiative is to provide a large coverage for areas that is vulnerable to Aedes and Dengue infestation. A geographic information system (GIS) will also be provided by the company to show the distribution of the coverage areas. This display can be accessed from the internet at http://denggi.rbsentinel.com home page.

Participation from any corporate member to contribute towards the initiative through their ”Corporate Social Responsibility” (CSR) programme is most welcomed by the company, the trap will be labelled with the participating company's name and will be designated on the GIS coordinate point. Special program for Parents Teacher Association (PIBG) for schools is also available and the details can be obtained from the same home page www.rbsentinel.com.

“With the implementation of this first point, we hope this project will get the support from the corporate members and the relevant agencies to assist in providing the solution to this aggravated problem, as carried out in Manaus ” said Mejar (B) Zainal Abdullah, the Managing Director of Rangkaian Bekalan Sdn Bhd, referring to a similar initiative carried out using the same traps (BG Sentinel) in Manaus, Brazil with sponsorship from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and World Bank. The project was carried out for eighteen (18) months from in 2009 to 2010, during this study, scientists have observed the reduction of Aedes mosquitoes up to 95% on some cycle. These traps which has been developed by a team of scientists led by Dr Martin Geier after 15 years of research in the field of mosquito behaviour, ( read research documents at http://www.bg-sentinel.com ) , were previously used by research engineers , now available to the public .

“Trapping adult Aedes mosquitoes is a practical option in our case considering the absence of vaccine and the increasing difficulty to locate the hatchery of Aedes larvae , its also a non-intrusive and environmentally friendly approach ” add Mejar (B) Zainal Abdullah.

About BG Sentinel Mosquito Trap
A result of more than 15 years of academic research into the host-finding of mosquitoes, the BG-Sentinel (a.k.a. the BG trap or BGS trap) is a mosquito trap used by mosquito professionals worldwide. It is a non-toxic approach, non-intrusive and provide permanent protection to the area . It is also an environmentally friendly solution because it will attract only the targetted species of mosquitoes, other beneficial insects and species will not be harmed in any way.
The BG-Sentinel mosquito trap:
- mimics convection currents created by a human body
- employs attractive visual cues
- releases artificial skin emanations through a large surface area
- can be used without CO2 to specifically capture selected mosquito species such as Aedes
- an excellent general mosquito trap when used with CO2
Used in combination with the BG-Lure, a dispenser which releases a combination of non-toxic substances that are also found on human skin (ammonia, lactic acid, and caproic acid), the BG-Sentinel is especially attractive for the yellow fever (or dengue) mosquito, Aedes (Stegomyia) aegypti, the Asian tiger mosquito, Aedes (Stegomyia) albopictus, the southern house mosquito, Culex quinquefasciatus, and selected other species.
With the addition of carbon dioxide, the BG-Sentinel is an excellent surveillance tool for mosquitoes in general.
Interesting for professional researchers and mosquito specialists: the BG-Sentinel is large enough to incorporate additional attractants such as fragrant substances, small living animals, worn clothing, animal hairs, light and heat sources, etc. This makes the trap a very versatile tool for both monitoring , research and control via mass trapping.
A full report on utilisation of BG Sentinel in mass trapping is attached with this press release. A project sponsored by Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and World Bank in Manaus, Brazil.
