  Research on attraction of mosquitoes towards their hosts has recently received a boost with health organizations raising alarms on the spread of diseases through mosquito vectors. This report reviews the findings of current studies being conducted and presents useful analysis on the same. The present research shows that no particular attractant is the sole reason for the mosquitoes in locating their host. It is a blend of different odours and compounds like CO2, short chain carboxylic acids, ammonia and other sweat compounds that contribute to the olfaction and subsequent attraction of these pests. Various customized experimental models have been used throughout the world for carrying out research in this relatively new field. Experimental and technical aspects of mosquito research have been covered in great detail with particular importance on the use of new technology. Genomic studies have been briefed upon and certain useful aspects of mosquito research have been covered at the end of the report including the identification and location of odorant receptors in mosquitoes. Genomic results have only contributed to the further understanding of the exact mechanisms and bodily functions involved in location of potential hosts for blood feeding.
