Mosquito Fighting Air Conditioner
Apparently LG has developed a new air conditioner that uses ultrasonic wave technology to repel mosquitoes. I’m not really certain how this is an effective use of technology as you don’t normally have that many bugs flying around in your home. Either way, LG says the unit can scare away 82% of nearby mosquitoes. I used to live near a swamp around the Schomberg area and I can tell you first hand the mosquitoes can get so thick you breath them in. I would assume that many of the suburbs of Toronto are dealing with similar situations and populations of these pests.
In terms of medical benefits I can see how this may be a new selling feature with the West Nile virus here in Toronto posing a threat to the young and the elderly. Realistically the propane mosquito catchers are actually quite effective and can be purchased at your local Canadian Tire store if you feel it necessary. On the off chance some one is looking for one of these units here in Ontario we do have access to them. Give us a quick call or a send in a message though our online contact form and we can help you out.
These systems were designed for Africa where Malaria is a very serious mosquito transmittable disease killing people every year. As I mentioned before the threat of West Nile may end up turning this air conditioner into a hot seller here in Toronto (pun intended!).
