The Mosquito Magnet Pro from American Biophysics Corp. entices and then kills biting insects by producing a warm, moist carbon-dioxide plume, mimicking the breath of an animal. As the insects approach, the machine vacuums them into a net where they dehydrate. The machine, which is fueled by a standard 20-pound propane tank, can eliminate biting insects from a 1-acre area. The housing of the machine is thermoformed from sheets of Lustran acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS) 752 and resin-capped with Centrex 833 weatherable polymer, both from Bayer Corporation's Plastics Division.

Encore's Power-Plug lightweight walk-behind aerator has no add-on weights or water drums. Instead, the aerating tines are driven similarly to an engine crank shaft, with each revolution driving the tines into the ground. The ⅝-inch-diameter tines are adjustable to approximately 2 ¾-inches deep. Tines disengage with a hand lever to skip over sprinkler heads and sidewalks without slowing down.
