Malaria is a huge killer globally. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been aggressive about ways to stop mosquitos from biting people and infecting them. Bed nets has been one great solution. And now, scientists will try to make better traps, using stinky feet smell. Here's an excerpt from an Associated Press story:
Dr. Fredros Okumu, the head of the research project at Tanzania's Ifakara Health Institute, says that traps scented with the odor of human feet may be the answer as they attract four times as many mosquitoes as a human volunteer. The mosquitoes who fly into the trap are then poisoned.
