Want to repel mosquitoes? There's an APP for that: Phone software mimics the sounds of predators to repel biting females

*  Anti-mosquito apps emit frequencies designed to frighten mosquitoes
*  Some mimic the sounds of mosquito predators, such as dragonflies
*  Others use the sound made by the wings of male insects, which females avoid once they’ve mated
*  Experts have warned the apps don’t effect landing rates
*  Entomologist added there is no evidence females avoid males after mating
