Having a USB mosquito repeller seems to be about as logical as an indoor windsock. I’m not sure what type of situation you’d have to be in to need to get rid of pesky mosquitoes while using a computer- maybe at nerd camp or something. The gadget works by emitting an ultrasonic noise that is said to deter the flying insects (although it’s doubtful that it actually works). In the meantime your laptop screen will be attracting bugs, so maybe the bugs will hover around a few feet away in a state of mass confusion. Is it worth $6 to find out if it actually does work? Probably not.

One thought on “USB Mosquito Repellent is Ideal for Nerd Camp”
No noise emitting device has ever been proven to be a successful pest deterrent. All such devices on the market are frauds, including this one. Face it – would a little bit of unpleasant noise keep you from your meal?
