Greater Knowledge of Mosquitoes Through…Pantyhose?

In order to find out why mosquitoes prefer human blood to animal blood,  researchers at Rockefeller University had human volunteers and guinea Modified Mosquitoespigs don pantyhose for 24 hours. A machine then sorted out each individual chemical, and one called sulcatone was present only in the stockings worn by humans. But the researchers note that sulcatone alone can’t explain the preference; they added sulcatone to guinea pig odor and the brown-bodied mosquitoes showed no increased preference for the odor.
