Suzhou has been called the "Venice of the East" because of all the canals that run through the city, which also means we are surrounded by mosquito breeding grounds. I am absolutely convinced that if our family had lived in China 100-200 years ago, we would have been killed by malaria or some other terrible disease by now. Even though we live on the 27th floor, the mosquitoes still find their way into our apartment by riding up the elevators or clinging to our clothes.
Unless you've lived in China (maybe SE Asia in general?), you might not know that such a contraption exists. Let me be the first to introduce you to the Chinese Mosquito Racket. With the push of a button, a small electrical current can kill the pesky mosquitoes that take over Suzhou. You simply wave the racket in the air and whatever happens to be caught in its cross hairs are electrocuted. Perhaps not child-friendly, but effective.
Here is our racket, in action. Ours is so fancy that it has a light on it (hence the funny glare in the photos).
I went looking online for a photo of a mosquito racket and found this one. But, what I really liked the best were the product features and advantages to this zapper. I'm not sure if I am encouraged or frightened that you can use it on cockroaches.
1. To kill mosquitoes, flies, moths, spiders, cockroaches, etc.
2. To absorb the pests without dropping and breaking, by the high-voltage static generated between the two nets.
3. To produce ozone and negative oxygen ions by the working electric nets.
4. To be stable in performance and not easy to break.
1. No smoke, no spot
