A simple conversion of a back pack mist-blower into an efficient power aspirator


, : A simple conversion of a back pack mist-blower into an efficient power aspirator. Mosquito News 34(2): 166-169

A Keichens back-pack mist-blower was converted into an efficient power aspirator at a cost of about 10 US $. Details of the conversion are given. Five additional parts are required, all of which are easily obtainable. They are a flexible hose, an adaptor joining the hose to the intake port of the mist-blower, a collection carton, a holder for the carton at the open end of the hose and a mounting bracket. Conversion to an aspirator or back again takes about 20 min.
