This Billboard Kills Hundreds of Zika Virus Mosquitoes in Brazil With "Sweat"
Look at this asshole mosquito...
Fortunately, a Brazilian ad agency has come up with a genius way of combating these disease-carrying pests aptly called the "Mosquito Killer Billboard."
So, how does this glorious masterwork of death work?
The "Mosquito Killer Billboard" lures mosquitoes with fluorescent lights and a mixture of lactic acid and carbon dioxide — mimicking the scent of our breath and sweat that enables mosquitoes to find us.
Mosquitoes lured into the contraption get trapped by the billboard's vacuum-like mechanism...
...and stay trapped in the display until they dehydrate and die.
The project and specifications for the technology is under Creative Commons — any city contending with the Aedes aegypti mosquitoes spreading the Zika virus can build their own mosquito killing billboard.
