Oops, turns Mosquitoes Can Think At Attacking Humans:
Mosquitoes, tiny blood-sucking insects is apparently smart. Especially could change the pattern of the attacks when searching for prey - human blood. The evidence was found by researchers from France.

Two villages in rural Africa often attacked before eventually promoting mosquito netting installation program so that people can sleep comfortably, without fear of being bitten by mosquitoes. Initially, the program looks successful. But it turns out after a while, the mosquitoes in these areas are usually attacked at around 2:00 to 3:00 morning now instead attacked around 5:00 am when people started to wake up. In fact, the reported assault of mosquitoes outside the house rose sharply.

French scientists study published in the Journal of Infectious Diseases. The report in the journal called the attack outside the home increased 68 percent after the program use a mosquito net.

"These findings are very worrying, because the villagers usually get up before dawn to work in their garden, it mebmbuat they can not be protected by a mosquito net," writes senior researcher, Vincent Corbel from Montpellier, France.

Mosquito nets or mosquito netting used in rural villages of Africa actually contains an insecticide to suppress malaria deaths. Based on reports from the Cochrane Collaboration, it is estimated that for every 1,000 children protected by insecticide-treated nets, five to six lives will be saved each year.
