Bug Smasher

This tool is designed for use on another planet, say Mars, when it is in the early stages of human colonization. The tool is designed to quickly and efficiently kill a variety of insects, which could easily be used as a food source on this planet. The reason insects could be used as a food source include their high protein content, their sizable zinc and iron content, and the ratio of food required to produce an amount of edible of insect meat. It would be printed on Mars, and not in micro-gravity. It is a simple but useful tool that could be used for a great deal of time before it would need to be replaced.
