Yes, you could. The simplest way would be to use an automobile ignition coil. I forget the exact setup, but you should be able to find an 'ible on it somewhere.

If you mean, "Can I operate a tesla coil on 6V?"... technically, sure. I suppose you're not just killing insects for fun, right?

I imagine you could modify Plasmana's shocker to run off 6V, and his Marx generator could be helpful.

Or you could just try making this portable bug zapper.
