Mosquitoes love old tires. Scientists aren’t exactly sure why. There’s something about the warm rubber—a chemical compound that the mosquitoes can smell, perhaps—that attracts the insects to lay their eggs in the tires’ hollow insides. In backyard settings, old tires are one of the biggest risk factors for mosquito breeding, producing up to a third of all mosquitoes in the area.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
