The device's creators say it destroys 99% of the insects it identifies and can distinguish bugs by form, velocity, and wing beat frequency. Allowing you to be selective on which bugs you want to kill.

It's creators say it's more targeted and effective than pesticide making it ideal for countries heavily affected by Malaria. The device will soon be tested by U.S. Dept. of Agriculture to see if it can kills insects that destroy crops.
