Living in Minnesota my entire life I, probably like you, have had at least seven million mosquito bites. Who knew that cologne wearing cows might be the answer to controlling those blood suckers.

Mosquitoes are the worst! They carry some of the most deadly diseases known to man: Malaria, yellow fever, dengue, West Nile, encephalitis... not to mention they leave the big red itchy dots wherever they bite your flesh.

Some brainy scientists in California are now experimenting with spraying human-scented cologne on cattle. Cows cannot contract human malaria from mosquitoes and even better news, the cows can also be treated with insecticide, so that if any of those little biters do nibble on the cattle, it winds up dead.

Pretty brilliant. Read more about the human-scented cologne and the cattle HERE.
