Simple mosquito killers are the new buzz in Gates Foundation's malaria battle.

Matt Thomas, professor and Huck Scholar in Ecological Entomology, says simple methods of killing malaria-spreading mosquitoes are needed while more complex technologies are being developed.

"There's lots of innovation, lots of cool ideas for malaria, but we really need things that can start saving lives in a timeline of three to five years," said Thomas. "Simply having a great idea that sits on the lab bench isn't going to do that."
