Mosquitoes sucked up by traps that mimic breathing

More than 300 mosquito-catching machines have been deployed in the French town of Hyères after the insects started to affect tourism.

Qista says the devices reduce the prevalence of mosquitoes by about 80%.

BBC Click’s Chris Fox went to Hyères to see the machines in action and ask the company’s co-founders about their impact on the environment.
