Swedish pharmacy has created an album filled with walloping dubstep remixes of traditional nursery rhyme songs that are meant to ward off mosquitos.
Earlier this year, a study published in the scientific journal Acta Tropica found that the classic Skrillex track ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ can protect you from mosquito bites.
How is this possible? The researchers found that these insects were actually “entertained” by the music which in turn disrupted “host-attacking and copulation.”
With this in mind, the pharmacy Apotek Hjärta hired dubstep duo Kloudmen to create a six-track album titled ‘Smashing Mosquito Summer Edition 2019′ with remixes of tracks like “Itsy Bitsy Spider’ and ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes’ that use a mixture of intense high and very low frequencies that throw off the blood-sucking and disease-infested insects. The album also has its own mascot, DJ Myggbetty – an animated mosquito that wears headphones and loves to rave outside.
