anthropogenesis is interested in the laser approach to combating mosquitoes:

The power supply and the cost would be the drawbacks for the laser system in Africa/Asia at the family scale. I wasn't advocating take up of it - just thought it was interesting.

tigerlily78 is duly apprehensive:

I also have to wonder how many people in Africa would power the system once they have it. You might have to give them a solar installation as well. Nothing but Nets has sent over 3 million mosquito nets to Africa predominantly through grassroots fundraising...$10 covers the cost of one net.

Then there's always the mosquito magnet.

So how do you fight off mosquitoes? Join the debate.
