No More Mosquitoes

It looks like a tennis racket, but instead of volleying balls around, it captures and fries mosquitoes. I've mentioned before here that mosquitoes in Timor-Leste often carry dengue fever and malaria. Not being a big fan of spraying chemical around my house, I settled for "The Mosquito Beater." I can't tell you the satisfaction I get when I hear that static sound and a bright blue glow -- emitting from T-M-B.

One thing I have noticed is that mosquitoes like to stay close to the floor that explains why I used to get so many bites on my ankles. They also like to reside under my desk and they hover toward the floor -- outside my mosquito net.

It's the best four dollars I've spent in a while!
