Mosquito Trapping Can / Eco-Friendly and Energy-Saving

Mosquito Trapping Can

When there’s a mosquito buzzing by your ear while you are sleeping and you can't catch it even if you get up, being disturbed in the middle of the night is truly annoying. This is because the temperature of the head is higher, and the wavelength of the infrared ray from the head is the longest, which may attract mosquitoes. Based on this theory, an anti-mosquito device was designed. This device can emit refillable carbon dioxide agent of high concentration, luring mosquitoes into the trap with no need for plug. It can be used anywhere. It is energy saving and eco-friendly. The device can be carried easily as its size is quite small.
