I Hate Mosquitoes

Citronella won’t work.
Neither will OFF! sprays.
I’m pretty desperate for anti-mosquito solutions during the summer time. The next ones I’ll be trying?
- Mosquito Mega Catch – for home. We can just put one of these bad boys out back and watch the bastards die.
- L.L. Bean Buzz Off Shirt – for travel. It uses similar methods for extermination that the Mega Catch uses.
The trap uses a strip of octenol (to generate a scent that resembles breath), a UV bulb, and flashing LEDs (oscillating frequencies determined to coincide with spectral sensitivities of many mosquitoes). When mosquitoes get close to the trap, the patented airflow system that disperses the attractant sucks the insects inside, where they are collected in a mesh catch bag or a liquid catch pan that is easy and safe to empty.In a USDA suburban test, our trap captured up to 1,200 mosquitoes in a single night and diminished mosquito populations over an entire acre.
Ohhh yes. I can’t wait to nuke those bastards.
