This is a mosquito repellent circuit to generates a high sound frequency using transistors as bistable multivibrator. It is economical and safer than using chemicals. The mosquitoes are annoying. And, carriers the pathogens to humans. Many ways to protect us from mosquitoes.
Most people use chemicals because the chemicals are high efficiency. But using often chemicals no good for everyone.
Why use the Mosquito repellent circuit?
This project uses the sound of mosquito repellents is the safest way for health. Because we generate a high-frequency sound wave that mosquitoes do not like.
According to the theory of scientists found that Mosquitoes do not like the high-frequency sound waves. So, it flies away because this sound interferes with its flying.
How Mosquito repellent circuit works
Simple mosquito repellent circuit using transistors, bistable multivibrator
In the circuit, connects two transistors (Q1, Q2) into a bistable multivibrator oscillator to generate a sound frequency.
Which the signal of this circuit is determined by both resistors(R2, R3) and both capacitors(C1, C2).
The sound frequencies get out of a collector of Q2. Then, comes into the ceramic piezo buzzer.
It emits a high-frequency sound on a radius of under 5 square meters.
If an outdoor using, or mosquitoes disturb too much. You should place this project far from us around 1 meter.
Build Mosquito repellent circuit
The circuit is very easy to make. As use a few components. To begin with, assemble them with the PCB layout as Figure 2.
Figure 2 PCB an components layout of this projects.
It is a components layout, should solder them into the right position.
The value of the circuit should match with the circuit diagram. Then, cut the legs of devices.
After that, solder them to connects a 1.5V battery, a switch, and a piezo speaker with the wires.
The characteristics of the piezo speaker is a thin circular metal. One side coated with ceramic in different sizes are 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40 and 50 millimeters.
Testing and application
First of all, check your wiring and circuit for error.
Secondly, connect correctly a positive-negative voltage polarity from a common 1.5 volts battery.
Then, turn on S1-switch. We will hear the weak high frequency out of the piezo speaker.
Now, this project is working.
We turn on this circuit for about 30 minutes. Place this near an infestation mosquito.
After that, about 30 minutes, the mosquitoes should less. It indicates the circuit works great.
But if the mosquitoes are still too much.
Because your circuit may create the frequency, not effect to mosquitoes.
Thus, you have to adjust the new frequency by changing the capacitance of C2. From 0.002uF into 0.0022uF or lower 0.0015uF.
Then, observed changing of mosquitoes.

This is Circuit MOSQUITO REPELLENT. It can power a high-frequency Sound.
Bonus: MOSQUITO REPELLANT using IC-555, 4017, 4011
This circuit uses an electronics parts. So easy to gets and inexpensive.
Look at the circuit. They include IC-555, 4017, 4011 and BC337, BC327.
The output is piezo Speaker.
The volt supply requires +12V or 9V
Note: I never build it. But you can try it. Please share with me. When making it.
Have a good day for learning Electronics.
I love electronics. I have learned them by creating the Electronic Circuits and Simple projects to teach my children. Most importantly I hope sharing our experience on this site will be helpful to you.
Thanks for your support. 🙂
