There aren’t many mosquito fans out there. In fact, people want to kill them – maybe everyone. And some have found very creative ways to get rid of them: in particular, killing mosquitoes with Cardi B music.
A YouTuber came up with a very creative method of stopping mosquitoes using a custom electronic project.
A US-based account named Shane has uploaded a video outlining his idea of how to rid the world of one of the world’s worst pests.
“Mosquitoes kill a million people every year, making them the most dangerous animals in the world for humans. To sum up, mosquitos suck – which, oddly enough, sounds a lot like today’s popular musicians, ”he said.
“What made me think, can I fight fire with fire? Can I kill mosquitoes with bad music? “
First, he put up a tank with some mosquito larvae, put a sound system next to it, and played music with the intention of harming the creatures.
The playlist included Cardi B’s debut album, the Catch Me Outside girls sound, Rebecca Black’s Friday, and even the Spanish version of Baby Shark.
“No sane creature should ever be forced to listen to the contents of this playlist,” he quipped.
But after an hour nothing happened.
“If anything, the degenerate creatures enjoyed it very much,” he said.
Then he converted his ultrasonic gun into something that could play his music and installed piezo pickups so he could play the music straight into the tank.
And it worked. While Shane liked to pretend he had driven the mosquitoes insane, the frequency of the sound actually happened, which is associated with air bubbles in the mosquito larvae.
Essentially, he says, playing Cardi B at that frequency burst the larva’s organs.
And while this is extremely effective during his use, he warns against using it in a pond: the same frequency could harm other beneficial creatures such as frogs and fish.
However, if you’re looking for a way to rid a standing empty pond of mosquito larvae, this could be a solution – even if you’re a Cardi B fan.
