- 1 Boe Bot
- 5 Wires
- Multiple Screws
- Multiple Nuts
- 1 lb. wieght (balance)
- Repel Mosquito Repellent
- 1 Door Actuator
- 3 Metal Bars
- 2 9v batteries
- Sauder

- Project Board / Open Yard
- Basic Stamp Editor v2.5.3

Step 2: Build the Structure

Using Zip Ties, mount the actuator to the back of the Boe-Bot. Once that is securely in place, place the bracket next to the actuator and tighten it using a screw. After the bracket is secure, use zip ties to keep the Repel Mosquito Repellent stable, atop of the bracket. Thread the metal bar through the actuator, in position to spray the can of Repel Mosquito Repellent. Lastly, connect two metal bars to the front end of the Boe-Bot, using a 1lb weight to balance the Nosquito.

Step 3: Wiring the Nosquito

Connect the positive wire of the actuator to the positive end of one of the batteries located in the front of the Nosquito. Link the two batteries together, and bring the negative wire off the battery to the long side of the Mini Relay. On the opposite side of the Mini Relay, connect one wire to the VSS portion of the Boe-Bot, one wire to the Pin (p10), and one wire to the negative end of the actuator. Once all the wires are secure, sauder them together to maintain their stability.
cool idea!  how do you trigger the nosquito to start spraying?  or does it run continuously?
The Nosquito is actually sprayed through the pumping of the acuator. The metal bar connected to the actuator will spray down on to the top of the bug spray. Within the program, all that is needed is to trigger the pin the actuator is connected to. It is possible to control the pulses being sprayed through the mini relay, or leave it to run continuously. The Mini Relay opens and closes the circuit depending upon the program.
