    Killing mosquitoes?

    How should we describe the action of killing mosquitoes?
    1. The boy is killing mosquitoes in his room.
    2. The boy is clapping mosquitoes in his room. (Can this be accepted?)
    3. The boy is slapping mosquitoes in his room. (Can this be accepted?)
    4. The boy is swatting mosquitoes with his hands. (is it ok to swat something with hands?)


    or any other better solution? Thanks

    He'd stand more chance of killing mosquitoes by whacking them with a fly-swatter or rolled-up newspaper.

    Better still, he could spray the room with Raid.
