Using an atomic device to kill an insect

This is a link to a Wall Street Journal article.  My friend Tom and his wife have some sort of connection to some rather intriguing new inventions coming down the pipeline.  One part mad scientist, one part venture capital, and one part legal team to protect the patent rights.  It is all very interesting.

It seems that one of the new things coming down the pipe is a laser that kills mosquitoes.  The article does not go into the intricacies of what sounds like an awesome idea (even more awesome when you consider that the main goal is to reduce infected mosquito populations where malaria is still a killer).

The article also highlights some other ideas out there regarding mosquito control.
