New Weapon In The Fight Against Mosquitos
A team of scientists at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee have discovered a chemical compound that is literally thousands of times more effective than any insect repellent available.

This chemical actually disrupts an insects ability to sense its surroundings, meaning mosquitoes won't actually be able to sense the presence of blood. This has been tested on Anopheles mosquitoes, also known as the malaria mosquito.
