New Delhi: Needless to say, mosquitoes are the most irritating and the most hated creatures on our planet! As a vector for diseases like malaria, dengue fever, Chikungunya, and Zika virus, they are responsible for over 700,000 human deaths annually. On a daily basis, they make our lives difficult with their constant buzzing sounds and annoying bites. Though there are many lotions, sprays and repellants available in the market, not all of them are effective.
