Millions of homes try to manage the menace of mosquitoes & flies ineffectively at home, while they breed and multiply at will outside near tanks, drainage, and sewage units. An average mosquito after one meal can lay up to 300 eggs and has the ability to lay thousands in its lifespan. The innovator comes up with a very interesting device- the solar mosquito trapper cum destroyer. This device makes use of the smell from the septic tank to attract the mosquitoes. Once the mosquitoes get trapped inside the device, the heat built up inside the device, as a result of direct sunlight exposure, kills them.Close
