US scientists from the University of California on 1 June 2011 developed a gas that can get rid of mosquitoes. The Scientists created three classes of odour molecules that swamp the mosquitoes’ senses and as a result it becomes impossible for the mosquitoes to sniff out human blood. The chemicals used by scientists bamboozled the tiny censors helping the mosquitoes to trace CO2 (Carbon Di-oxide) in the air.


This discovery will help in providing protection against mosquito-borne disease like dengue, yellow fevers and malaria.
