Solar Mosquito Repellent- 05.26.05
3 hours of sunlight, and mosquito free. I won’t even pretend to understand it, but they claim it works, and after many a horrible mosquito attacks, i’m game to try it. And its the most unique use of sustainable energy i’ve found tonight [more on that later, its my theme/curiosity of the night].
We’ve received countless raves from satisfied Solar Mosquito Guard owners from Hawaii to the Amazon Basin, from Alaska to Louisiana all with the same theme: “These amazing things really work, we’re mosquito free, while our friends are swatting away.” The principle is they put out a high-frequency audible wave that actually repels most species of mosquitoes. Funny part is there is no scientific evidence that mosquitoes can even hear, yet they really seem to work! There is an on/off switch so you don’t have to activate until the mosquitoes arrive. The battery will recharge in three hours of sunlight. Hong Kong.
Bizzare, possibly amazing. Worth 10$ if it works, doesn’t harm the environment, saves you from itchiness. Or if you’re super hardcore…
With recent health threats, mosquito control has taken on new importance. The weather-proof Mosquito Eliminator exploits everything known about mosquito predation to safely and effectively control entire populations in yards, camps and more. Connected to a standard outlet, the trap uses a breakthrough ceramic catalyst to convert propane into carbon dioxide, the lure that biting females can’t resist. Augmenting this bait with heat, light and moisture to create an irresistible attraction that mimics a human, it reels mosquitoes and other blood-seeking insects into an easily cleaned internal trap.
For just pennies per day, rid up to ¬ĺ of an acre of summer’s biggest bane without pesticides or other hazards. 20 lb. propane tank (not included) provides 3-4 weeks of 24/7 protection. UL listed. 48”H x 12”W. 48 lbs. China.
A bit crazy, no? I would have wanted one of these in milan though. maybe even dress it up as a human, or a robot, or something that looked like it was getting attacked by mosquitos.
Or try this… all natural and it apparently works? (says Organic Style, they gave it a 10 on a 10 point scale)
