If you’re heading off on holiday this year, we have a great idea to keep the mozzies at bay
– take your hens! Research has shown mosquitoes actively stay away from a room if it has
a chicken in it! This theory was tested by putting volunteers (perhaps they didn’t knowwhat
they were signing up for!) in beds surrounded by untreated mosquito nets.
Some volunteers had either a live chicken or chicken feathers near their bed and a trap was
set up to catch any mosquitoes which flew in. The result was – you guessed it – there were
far fewer mosquitoes in the rooms with the chickens and feathers! So thanks to the team
which carried out the research for giving us a reason to take our feathered friends with us
wherever they go! Now, pass the suncream…
The greatest height at which a raw egg has been
dropped and remained intact is 213m, from a
helicopter onto a golf course in Blackpool.
