We've all heard the irritating sound of a mosquito buzzing nearby.

But according to DIY Neuroscience by TED, the reason behind the annoying sound is actually rather sweet!

It apparently all has to do with love and attraction.

The male mozzie creates a high-pitched buzz with his wings, while the female creates a much lower tone with hers.

The female eventually chooses her mate by finding a male who she harmonies with the best.

What a surprisingly romantic practice for blood-sucking bugs!
