- A group of scientists from Sweden and Ethiopia have discovered that mosquitoes do not like chicken smell. The scientists published their findings in the journal Malaria Journal, which focuses specifically on research into malaria.

The researchers showed volunteers sleep in huts with live chickens with chicken feathers and without chickens. They concluded that mosquitoes stayed away from the huts with chickens and chicken feathers and attributed it to the smell of the birds.

Possibly, a spray of chickens odor in the future, serve as a repellent. There is no effective vaccine against malaria still exists. Last year died according to the UN nearly 400 000 people in Africa to the infectious disease.
