The engineering students' proposed design for the Mosquito Clamp.

The Mosquito Clamp is most effective when it is placed as a barrier between people and a water source (where mosquitos breed).

UQ engineering students reveal their design for the mosquito clamp.

Members from the team of engineering students demonstrate the electric current that will be used to "zap" mosquitoes.

Mosquitoes are prevalent in humid, tropical regions such as Queensland. (Image taken from http://www.flickr.com/photos/ 28481088@N00/1503042055/)

A female mosquito can produce up to 250 eggs at a time, these eggs then hatch into larvae. (Image taken from http://www.mosquitobarrier.com/images/larvae.jpg)

The itchy, red lump caused by a mosquito's bite is the result histamine, a chemical produced by your immune system to combat the saliva of the mosquito. (Image taken from http://www.rkm.com.au/.../MOSQUITOS/mosquito-bite-1.jpg)

Dengue fever is a viral disease that is transmitted to humans from a certain type of mosquito in Queensland that carries the disease. (Image taken from http://www.health.qld.gov.au/dengue/ images/map_dengue.gif)

The Mosquito Clamp has the potential to eliminate Malaria and other mosquito born diseases. (Image taken from http://knowledge.allianz.com/nopi_downloads/ images/malaria_mosquito_swarm_z.jpg)

Mosquito Clamp team: Waikit Tan, Hugh Francis, Matt King, Daniel Zerphey and David Reynolds held a media conference on Monday.
