Musical Roach Trap

Cockroach Conga Line
  [vote for,

This device transponds Xavier Cugat recordings to frequencies detected by roaches, compelling them to form conga lines leading to the trap which vaporizes them with high voltage. It also provides entertainment for nostalgic homeowners bored with the Coronavirus lockdowns.

       //transponds// transposes?   

       Although, to make this effective, you might need to transpose it into a whole different medium - the music of scent. See link.

       I would vote for a scaled up version that plays country and western music and attracts those who defile the soundscape with its moronic outpourings.

       Problem with that idea [xen] is that we might accidentally hear it.

       I personally love this idea, and only hope it can be tweaked to work on our STINKY STINK BUG population that is overtaking my usually calm and peaceful inner being.

       But Xavier Cugat never recorded a song for stinkbugs.

       Are you SURE about that???

       You could try reusing the original tune and lyrics, but say “chinche” twice in place of each “cucuracha” - it might work!   

       La chinche chinche, la chinche chinche
Ya no puede caminar
Porque no tiene, porque le falta
Una pata para andar

       Humanity might get the technology to simulate the charge shadow of molecules from pure EM field manipulation. A pure plug in device, no chemical reservoirs needed.   

       A synth music to move air molecules is probably involved but the wave calculations to make detailed 3D volumetric E.M. shape patterns is a bit off yet.
