Combat mosquito-borne viruses with the Silicon Chip Mosquito Lure Kit

Posted by

Designed by Australia's own Silicon Chip magazine, this kit once assembled will help combat zika and other mosquito borne viruses. It lures male mosquitoes into a trap by producing an inaudible tone which attracts them. The female mosquito is the culprit for the painful bites which are not only uncomfortable, but spread some very nasty viruses. 

Silicon Chip Mosquito Lure Kit from Tronixlabs Australia

By luring and trapping the males, this prevents fertilisation and since pregnant females are the prime culprit for biting, this in turn reduces the incidence of mosquitoes in the nearby area. 

An interesting device and once assembled in the included enclosure will be a sturdy and useful device for those dealing with flying bloodsuckers. To learn more and order, click here to visit the product page
