Ek macchar aadmi ko...

I have a long running enmity with these blood suckers and am always on a lookout for methods to free my house of these parasites.
In my quest to find the ultimate antidote for this menace, I found this - a project by Intellectual Ventures Inc., funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. A mosquito-zapping laser created by salvaging parts from consumer electronics. Do watch the video below:

Some other unconventional ways for wannabe mosquito terminators:
  1. Home made mosquito trap - I think this one is a hoax. Tried this at home. No. of mosquitoes trapped: 0

  2. Electric mosquito trap. I ordered one from wantrn. It does an OK job, but effective only in dark rooms that too when there is no one present in the room (make sure to do a Homenum Revelio before turning this on :). The build quality needs a lot of improvement, as does the service. The charger stopped working due to a loose contact within the first month.
    But, not to miss the joy of seeing a pile of corpses when you check the storage container after a few days. Mu ha ha ha...

  3. Heavy duty outdoor trap from megacatch. IMO this should be a must-have amenity in every society...look forward to mosquito free night strolls and gardens.

And for those of you who came looking for the famous song in the title from the movie Yeshwant:
