I hate mosquitoes. Unfortunately they love me.
Scientists are on the case. They've genetically modified mosquitoes to produce 95%-male offspring. We're a few years away from scientists releasing GM mosquitoes into the wild, but if they do it would cause a crash in the mosquito population.
This could help in the fight to stop malaria killing hundreds of thousands of people each year. And on a much less important note, stop me being bitten half to death every summer.
