Though the who idea sounds weird,mosquito bites are a serious issue these days.Indian radio station Red FM had launched the initiative ‘Red FM Baja, Machchar Bhaga,’ to combat with the increasing cases of Malaria and Dengue in Delhi. What the are going to do is that they’llplay particular frequency between 14 kHz to 20 kHz under the music, which would shoo away mosquitoes. These days there are several gadgets and app thatthat claim to repel mosquitoes. So an anti-mosquito TV isn’t too far fetched.
