Reseachers examined the effects of electronic music (Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites by Skrillex) on mosquitoes and whether it made them less likely to bite hosts. According to the study, those subjected to the music had a lower chance of getting bit than those not subject to the music.

Given that choice I'd say 'bite me'.

What about your band Dave?

Did they try Manilow music on the mosquitoes?

Years ago, we had a mother racoon give birth to babies in the smoke shelf just inside our fireplace. I called Animal Control, and they said to get a portable radio and tune it to a heavy metal station and put it in the fireplace.

I did that, and the racoons left the next day.

I think there is a lesson in this.

But what about the effect of Skrillex on the humans? I'd rather have the bug bites.

I never knew about this band existence, so I checked it on U-Tube. Music is annoying, but the comments are funny. It seems that so many lovers of this "music" are puzzled why there are so many comments regarding mosquitoes.

My exterminator recommends Yoko Ono's cover of Great Gig in the Sky. Go figure.
