I came across an interesting device in the DIY shop - it generates and emits CO2 which irresistibly attracts skeeters and they would fly straight into the device. Once inside, they can't get out and will eventually die from dehydration. Clean and cheap to operate for it consumes just a little electricity so it can left on all day and night.

Thanks. Will try and track it down.

Much appreciated.

Thanks to all y'all's responses.


You're welcome, BOXIAN. Oh, you might want to check out this device at:

and a whole page of them at: dioxide&gs_l=img.3...2556.12755.0.13670. %3A%3Btjb5hZjqfCSqfM%3A%3BNe1g1aMY82MEQM%3A&imgrc=tjb5hZjqfCSqfM%3A

Btw, I found a very curious thing that I want to share re skeeters: I used to get bitten a lot and didn't know why but eventually I did. My blood glucose was too high! When I got it under control, I found that the mossies stopped bothering me. Perhaps there's some truth to the joke that my friends used to tease me with: "Your blood is too sweet. That's why they come after you." I hope this is not true for you or others as high BG is not nice, healthwise but no harm getting one's blood work checked, just in case.
