Introduction: Automatic Mosquito Killing Bucket

Pest Control Challenge

Runner Up in the
Pest Control Challenge

This project gives you total rest from mosquitoes because it work automatically. You have to just make effort for one time for make it.

Step 1:

Firstly, take your mosquito killer racket and open it because we have to make some modification to make it automatic.

Step 2:

Now, take out circuit and battery so we can work on it properly.

Step 3:

In circuit we have 2 switch. 1st is two-way switch. It is On/Off switch so we leave it for now. 2nd is push-button switch which is we are looking for.

Connect it's both legs by soldering.

Step 4:

Now, last thing is battery, so in my case I have in built rechargeable battery but in your case you may have AAA battery socket so remove from their connection.

Take DC adapter. I took 5V DC mobile charge and removed it's port and take out two wire. Red is positive and white is negative.

After removing wire from battery or socket, connect circuit's positive and negative wire with DC adapter's positive and negative wire respectively.

We are done. Now screw it back.

Step 5:

Take any bucket and put this wired mosquito killer racket on it and I put some boxes to balance it properly. You can put any light source in the bucket. Plug-in adapter and switch it on.

Sorry, but what is a Mosquito Racket (Racquet?) ?

It would be helpful if you mentioned that at some point for us who don't know of these things.

I am assuming that it somehow zaps the skeeters and they fall into the bucket dead, am I correct?

This explains what a mosquito racket is: http://lmgtfy.com/?q=Mosquito+Racket

for sale at Harbor Freight for about 3 dollars......it's great for swating flies.

Thank you for all the helpful replies. I did Google it to find out more as where I am we have a horrendous mosquito problem and any weapon is welcome in my armoury.

Please remember all you folks in the USA that this is an international site and there are many places in the world where "Harbor Freight" is not even comprehensible let alone a shop.

Also know as Mosquito swatter... Mosquito Racket is a Badminton racket shaped, with three layers of aluminium net inside (see uploaded picture). The middle layer aluminium net is charged with high voltage around 2000 Volts ( Be safe... dont try to insert your finger inside, to touch this high charged net. Otherwise u will get a nice electric shock) & while the outer two layers are grounded. This high voltage is obtained by a mean of electronic circuit, which contains a small step up transformer & a capacitor connected in parallel combination. This electronic circuit is powered by two AA size 1.5 Volts battery.

Now when this Mosquito racket is moved against a flying Mosquito, the Mosquito gets in contact with live net & grounded net. Hence get burned instantaneously with a sound like this fat..fat...fat.

You can buy this Mosquito racket on www.aliexpress.com which is a chines e-commerce website. Just got to this website & type Mosquito swatter in search box. You will find lots of Mosquito racket with free international shipping worldwide. Now you don't need to live in America to buy a Mosquito racket.

Banned in Australia and NZ.

uhhhhh... is not, you can buy them at any supermarket in NZ... i live there and have bought them before.

Ok, banned in Aus, I haven't been back to NZ for many years. ( unless they've been legalised there in the last 6 yrs as well??? ) the ones we get here are rubbish, lucky if they even last a year, but what woudl you expect for only $3.

Most of the failure before 1 year is from the switch/push button.

You can either replace or tweak it. I have repaired 2 rackets on the push button switch. In Indonesia it is around AUS$3-$5.
