Following early stage of research in trying to combat mosquito borne diseases like malaria,yellow fever and zika,a team of researchers at Rockefeller University in New York may have find the way to get rid of those blood thirsty insects

The team led by Ms Duvall conducted the research by feeding human diet drug containing saline to Aedes Aegypti species of female mosquitos,and were impressed by the outcomes.The results showed that their appetite for human blood plummeted following administration of drug.
