Well here is a new lesson you can add to your memory bank. Did you know that mosquitoes are attracted to humans because people give out carbon dioxide? Apparently this is the reason why a lot of us get bugged by these pesky insects, some going to the extent of carrying harmful diseases such as dengue.
We have been given an array of solutions to fend them off but if you want something new, the Mostrap should be neat to check out. The mosquito trap apparently taps the CO2 we emit, hence attracting the mosquitoes onto them. With a mixture of yeast, the Mostrap attracts mosquitoes and afterwards are zapped thanks to an electric grid waiting inside.
The trap’s elegant form bio-mimics the shape of mother nature’s predatory pitcher plant, making it a doubly effective and attractive killing machine.
The Mostrap was designed by Vishakan Shivasubramaniam.
