You are lying in bed asleep and suddenly you are awakened by that annoying zzz-ing sound of a mosquito flying close to your ear. Thats what happened
to me last night and many nights throughout the summer. Of course, I could get a mozzie net but I think there should be some way to detect mosquitoes
before they get close.
I had thought of a mini radar but I am not sure the technology is good at that kind of size and I am not sure I want microwaves zooming around inside
my house either.
So... There has been a microphone so sensitive that it can detect sounds at a cellular level so why not have something like this and 'listen' out
for that same zzz-ing frequency that mozzes make with their wings. As far as I can tell, it is the same sound whatever the size and if we could detect
them flying around in the dark, we could pin-point their direction, cos they are damn tricky things to find in a room-sized space (and when I am
Any other ideas?
Cockroaches, well thats another story. They fly around in the summer looking for mates. I've seen them and squashed them (and no, I am not mistaking
them for normal beetles)
