UK-based Min-Kyu Choi designed the ‘Sundew Flower Trap,’ a solar-powered gadget that helps to kill unwanted insects, like mosquitoes, by attracting them to carnivorous plants. Once inserted into the pot of a carnivorous plant, like the Sundew or Venus Fly Trap, the Sundew Flower Trap emits an ultraviolet glow that attracts insects for the plant to dine upon.

Since the Sundew Flower Trap is a solar-powered design, uses a plant to do the dirty work, and eliminates the need for chemical insecticides, it’s an eco-friendly remedy for pesky insects.
