1.5v will not cause any harm; in fact, you wouldn't even feel it!

you're about 9V?

you would feel it its just not powerful. if you really wanted to have some fun you could get one of those big flashlight batteries and do the same.

The idea is okay but... i think it will not work
i think 1.5V battery cant zap a mosquito
if you are referring for a 2  1.5V stun gun or zapper
you can follow this diagram from

OBar (author)fyborg2009-08-07

a "C" cell battery is often used in medium to large radios. A "C" cell has 1.5 volts across it.
