In­no­va­tive Buzz Kills

Cabin Living - - Getaway Gear -

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.
