Greater than 300 mosquito-catching machines have been deployed within the French city of Hyères after the bugs began to have an effect on tourism.

Qista says the units scale back the prevalence of mosquitoes by about 80%.

BBC Click on’s Chris Fox went to Hyères to see the machines in motion and ask the corporate’s co-founders about their influence on the surroundings.
