Innovative Buzz Kills
In the never-ending battle to beat the “skeeters,” the latest weapons include misters and traps that lure mosquitoes in for the kill.
Misters cover large areas with chemical repellents. Manufacturers offer misters in various sizes, depending on the area you’d like to cover with mist.
Vacuum traps work by mimicking the breath, heat and smell of humans to lure mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are then sucked into the trap, where they dehydrate and die.
Today’s bug “zappers” use black light, heat, color and bait to attract and kill mosquitoes.
