Scientists Discovered That 'Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites' Song By Skrillex Stops Mosquitos From Having Intercourse

A study published in the journal Acta Tropica on mosquito feeding and breeding habits discovered that insects are less likely to eat or have sex when "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites" by Skrillex is playing. A specific type of mosquito researched was the Aedes aegypti, also known as the yellow fever mosquito, which carries a range of diseases.


Before they detailed the experiment, scientists noted that it's known that electronic music - and more particularly, Skrillex's breakout single's low-frequency vibrations - disrupt mating habits in insects. They discovered that the noise makes it harder for them to receive signals from hosts.


For this experiment, researchers created a "music-on" and "music-off" environment where they studied the Aedes aegypti and came to conclusions.


Mosquitos in the music-on environment were less likely to feed on the provided host and less likely to reproduce than those in the music-off environment. Researchers claim that these findings can be used to help develop more ways to control Aedes-carried diseases.
