  • Just a heads up for the people

  • who are considering moving to Taiwan

  • mosquitoes

  • are a huge and serious issue

  • because they are one of the reasons

  • that keep you up at night

  • A mosquito zapper

  • is a must have in every Taiwanese household

  • and

  • they come in very handy

  • because when you see them close in range

  • you can zap them dead

  • but

  • that's assuming you can catch them

  • This cute little mushroom device here

  • actually does nothing

  • to catch mosquitoes

  • supposedly it radiates

  • body tempature

  • so

  • so that it will attract mosquitoes

  • and kill them but

  • obviously

  • this

  • I think it was

  • 30 USD

  • there's

  • nothing

  • no

  • and the mosquitoes tend to come out

  • during the warm weathers

  • and in Taiwan

  • that's pretty much

  • all the time

  • Hi

  • I'd like to ask

  • if you've got anything to keep the mosquitoes away

  • zappers?

  • and maybe those mosquito nets?

  • Mosquito net mmm

  • These are for hanging

  • and these are Mongolian Dome tents

  • Take your time

  • they look like these

  • So here are the mosquito nets

  • that the lady showed me

  • Wow these are actually really handy

  • Woah

  • K so I guess the idea is that you

  • hover it over your bed

  • so it serves as a protection

  • so the mosquitoes wouldn't be able to

  • come in and annoy your sleep

  • Wow there're so many kinds

  • there's also these

  • And these I believe

  • are liquid pesticide

  • that you plug in to your outlet

  • so the smell would

  • would put off mosquitoes

  • but just how effective they are?

  • because there is actually a rumor going on that

  • the smell could be bad for

  • for human beings

  • Man: My bedroom is too large for this tiny one

  • Sales: This has to be placed in a room without any source of light

  • The thing itself will light up when you plug it

  • if you've got other light sources it wouldn't be as effective

  • Omgosh

  • this has to be the cutest mosquito catcher

  • I've seen

  • wow

  • It also comes in a heavier price tag

  • at 40 USD

  • but omgosh

  • how could you pass on this

  • Here we go wow

  • these mosquito zappers are actually a lot more

  • stylish than I imagined

  • than the one I have at home

  • They look actually like tennis rackets

  • and

  • honestly it would serve as a pretty

  • decent accessories at home

  • anyway I think

  • with all these versatile products

  • you get the idea of how serious

  • this mosquito issue is

  • in Taiwan

  • and if you think you are prepared

  • to come and live here

  • (sigh)

  • well

  • you get the idea
