Smelly Feet Fighting Malaria

← Back to film listing

Scientists in the Netherlands have discovered that mosquitoes are particularly attracted to smelly feet. They are isolating the most ‘attractive’ odours and producing a chemical product to entice and then kill mosquitoes. Used regularly this product will reduce the number of mosquitoes, as they are unable to reproduce as quickly as this product removes them.
