Killing Mosquitos Using Laser?

In an effort to prevent the spread of malaria, scientists have built a laser that shoots and kills mosquitoes.Using technology developed under the Star Wars anti- missile programme, the zapper is being built in Seattle where astrophysicists have created a laser that locks onto airborne insects. The WMD laser works by detecting the audio frequency created by the beating of mosquito wings. A computer triggers the laser beam, the mosquito's wings are burnt off and its smoking carcass falls to the ground. The research is backed by Bill Gates, the Microsoft billionaire.
