Mosquit Lamp / Ecological garden lights

Mosquit Lamp

From experience, people have discovered that the fragrance of a vessel of soapy water in the corner of a courtyard or garden attracts mosquitoes to lay their eggs, while the alkaline solution prohibits them from hatching into further generations. Consequently, this natural method greatly decreases the number of active mosquitoes from any given area.

The ‘Mosquit Lamp’ encourages a graceful balance between innovation and nature by relying on the mosquito’s natural habits to prevent this pest from multiplying, effectively creating a safe, beautiful, and eco-friendly living environment whilst saving energy.
