Abstract: Some mosquito breeds spread fatal diseases such as Zika virus disease, malaria, dengue, and yellow fever; resulting in several millions deaths every year. There is no specific treatment or vaccination against these diseases. Thus, the best way to reduce the risk of mosquito-borne diseases is prevention. Study shows that mosquitoes detect humans mainly by the Carbon dioxide (CO2) we exhale. “Mozziecutor” produces CO2 through photo-catalysis of UV light and Titanium dioxide, hence confusing mosquitoes of the CO2 source. Since mosquitoes feed at night, “Mozziecutor” is designed to also function as a table lamp, providing two functions in one product. All in all, Mozziecutor is a mosquito trap redesigned.
