Battery less mosquito catcher Bat Answered

There are products like battery operated bats available in the market to kill mosquitoes and insects but there is no battery-less innovation. My invention is very simple and very effective in killing mosquitoes as there is no need for recharging the battery of this mosquito bat. Only a bat and adhesive tape are required to build it. It will work to by trapping and killing mosquitoes. Salient features: (1) there is no need for recharging it. (2) the adhesive tape can be removed and replaced after use. (3) it is a very low cost design so anyone can afford it very easily. (4) it is safe and light weight (5) it can be used many times.

Why don't I see any insects on the tape?
Right....
Because it will be impossible to get insects on it unless they decide to land on the tape....

You try it and get your answer. It really works.

In a vacuum it will work fine, but then again nothing would fly and bother me in a vacuum.
I don't have to try YOUR idea to show that YOUR idea does not work - I just go in any shop and know why there fly catchers don't have a closed surface to hit the insect.
As said, a video showing your invention actually works would also help to re-write the laws of physics ;)

You try it and prove that my idea is wrong. I will be happy.

I think that picture of the racket would be more persuasive, if it had several dead mosquitoes stuck to it.

I mean, have you tried this thing out yet? I am not totally convinced that thing can move through the air the way a tennis racket does, since the holes are all covered with adhesive tape.

I would try this myself, but it is December, and where I live there are not many mosquitoes this time of year. Where I live, mosquito season is more like July-August-September.

I actually have a few of the electric, battery powered, mosquito rackets, and these rackets seem to be very thrifty with battery usage. I mean, I am not even sure how many mosquitoes I would have to kill to drain those 2 AA alkaline cells.

My favorite style of this kind of racket, is the one with rows of parallel wires for electrodes, because that kind is easiest to clean.

In contrast, there is an inferior style of this racket, with electrodes that look kind of like two pieces of a screen door, sandwiched together, and that style is much harder to clean.

Yes, i have tried it and it works very well. The tape works to trape the mosquitoes.

Alright, I'll try this sticky-racket technique. Although it won't be any time soon. I am going have to put that one on my calendar, because around July 2020, is when mosquito season starts here.
