    I have just read about some research that says electronic music deters mossies, specifically dubstep , even more specifically anything by US artist Skrillex. . I thought this might be an April fool but apparently it's real research..
    Quite apart from the question of what we are paying people to do in research labs, .......I am sure that blaring out in the peace of the environment would keep me away too! Anyone willing to try it?

    Have you got any links?

    I would imagine it’s the vibrations that scare them away, I am partial to a bit of dubstep but in a nightclub not the outdoors..

    It was on my bbc news feed on my phone. Sorry I'm just not in the know on how to post links or photos. I'm a computer dunce! I'm still waiting to kidnap a ten year old child to show me how to do things like that.:)
