BioBelt, your best ally against mosquitoes.

The story begins with his own experience, on the terrace of Dominique Hauptmann, founder of BioBelt: it is 2009 and tiger mosquitoes are beginning to sweep through the Côte d'Azur, including Saint-Paul de Vence where he lives. He decided, together with an engineer friend, Gérard Benbassat, who later became his partner in the company, to test most of the individual capture devices available on the international market, the first models of which date back to the 1990s in the USA. A series of experiments over two years enabled them to observe that the luring strategy adopted by these individual devices was effective, with more or less significant catch rates, depending on the model, confirming an observation already mentioned in a number of scientific articles. However, these analyses also confirm what some studies have already pointed out: when carbon dioxide is emitted, whether by breathing people or by a capture device, the attraction of the mosquitoes can last up to 70 metres, in the form of corridors of carbon dioxide molecules transported by the movements of the air.
Logically, when "molecule corridors" are parallel, mosquitoes travelling up one of them won't "detour" through the other. So, if people are in the same garden as this capture device, their own attractiveness (through their breathing) cannot be overridden by the parallel attractiveness of the device. As a result, they can be bitten despite the presence of the device. This realization that individual capture devices are useful (because they capture), but insufficient (because they can't protect in all situations linked to the particularities of the site, air movements, etc.), led Dominique Hauptmann and Gérard Benbassat to come up with a solution that really meets this protection challenge: a system of networked modules around a given surface! This was the origin of the BioBelt concept. It then took several years of development, fine-tuning and successive refinements to finalize the precise methods and ratios behind the patent and growing success.

Our goal:

Guarantee the best efficiency of your protection, by defining the architecture of your Belt: the precise number and position of the Modules, and their best aesthetic integration in your outdoor space.

Our service :

A transparent global contract including the price of the BioBelt equipment guaranteed for 5 years, the costs of installation of the belt, and the maintenance service and supply of consumables by our technical teams.

Our satisfaction guarantee:

BioBelt offers you a trial period for the first two seasons of use of your mosquito protection.

Sample budget:

The BioBelt system is suitable for protecting medium-sized and large areas, because to ensure effective protection it is essential to position the lines of Modules at a certain distance from the living area. The minimum protected surface area is therefore around 500 m², bearing in mind that each project is the subject of a tailor-made study, taking into account the particularities of the property: topology of the land, vegetation, height of the buildings, etc.

As an indication, the BioBelt protection of this minimum surface area has the following budget:
- 7900 €HT for the sale of the Equipment,
- 1100 €HT for its installation,
- 1600 €HT seasonal Service Contract / Consumables.
The budget for the Equipment item is degressive, given the mutualization of the Technical Control unit piloting the system: each BioBelt is equipped with a Programming Unit, the intelligent connected tool. This enables BioBelt to protect very large areas. To date, the largest installation comprises 311 Modules and covers some 8 hectares.
