Using bats (the black flappy kind) to kill mosquitoes

We were really disturbed by the non-minimalism inherent in this battery-powered insect smashing tennis racket. Then in boingboing’s followup we learned that electric bug zappers can atomize all the crap (literally) stuck to the outside of whatever you smackzap, and we were really grossed out. Luckily, treehugger comes to the rescue with a much simpler solution. A bat house. Bats eat insects. Give them a friendly place to live, and they’ll eat “thousands of insects” every night. People & bats: 1 Nasty biting insects: 0.
