Skrillex’s music can protect you from mosquitos, study finds

'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites' stops them biting and reproducing... 

Skrillex’s music can protect you from mosquitos, according to a recent study published in the science journal 'Acta Tropica'

Research apparently shows the airborne menaces are so entertained by 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites' they forget to forage for human blood, or look for potential mates to reproduce with. Given the experiment focussed on Aedes aegypti, or the Yellow Fever Mosquito, that sounds good to us.

It's likely the news will come as a surprise even to Skrillex fans. They may have been convinced by his musical talent, most recently displayed as one-half of Dog Blood on a new collaborative production and at that Miami warehouse party last week, but it's unlikely they ever considered him as an effective insect repellent. The wonders never cease.
