This Television Repels Mosquitoes

(Image: LG)

The South Korean electronics company LG is selling a television set that drives away mosquitoes with ultrasonic sound waves. It's marketing the TV in India, where mosquitoes are a major public health menace. Each 32" monitor costs about $400 USD. UPI quotes the company:

"The ultrasonic sound waves effectively drives away the mosquitoes keeping your loved ones absolutely safe at home. Since no harmful chemicals are used, it is also odor-free and not hazardous to health like the conventional methods used for keeping mosquito away," the company said on its website.

All testing has shown ultrasonic insect repellent devices don't work. And what's more, I see no reason to combine these two unrelated devices. Would you buy a refrigerator-stove, or a lawnmower-car?

I was wondering about the entomology of it all. Likely it will just act as a selecting agent and promote reproduction among mosquitoes that are not affected by it.

I heard that many scientists found these sound-based products don't work.
Could be a good excuse for when TVs make that annoying high-pitched noise sometimes, blame it on the mosquito repellent.
