Mosquitoes are an important part of urban life in Singapore. It causes dengue fever which has caused a lot of damage to city dwellers. Most measures on mosquito eradication have been simple and direct killings such as insecticides. This research-based design aims to explore a more proactive, positive, human-involved approach. The design hopes to trap mosquitoes using carbon dioxide produced by people's movement and activity. This will both eliminate mosquitoes and educate people about mosquitoes using real advertising, achieving a city-wide policy effect.
