Whatever DNA is in the remote is targeted with frequencies. So all the mosquitos that have the same DNA will also receive the frequencies and die as the result.
Sometimes it takes 2 weeks or so to notice the effect. If more remain, they have a different DNA, so you need to collect more after 1-2 weeks.
This theory applies to any insect. I have a remote running millipedes at the moment. I thought they were gone as I saw hundreds dead. But after a recent rain, more have come out so I assume its a different family. So, I will collect new specimens each week esp throughout the summer. Will probably end up having 2 dedicated remote generators just for insects.
