Why do some people attract mosquitos more than others?
Ever experienced sitting outdoors with a group of friends on nice summer day enjoying cold drinks and a barbecue and notice that the mosquitos all seem attracted to you and not seem to be bothering everyone else?
Different people have different odors, diet may play a factor, when you apply (Deet, or OFF) The mosquitos and horse flys avaid the area, due to the odor of the chemical......Maybe some peoples odor just does not appeal to a mosquito........
I'm a poet, hit me up on here.......Good question!!!
If you eat garlic, the mosquitoes don't like the taste of your skin and go to someone more tasty.
I want to know this!!! Mosquitoes attack me more than others. It's really annoying!
I am a mosquito bait. I hate mosquitos! Mosquito bites stay on me for weeks. I love winters... no mosquitos.
If you have a long nose mosquitoes think you are one of them. Therefore they will be attracted to you. Probably for mating.
Alright, I confess, I have no idea but I tried!
Great question! Have you noticed that people who make their living in the great outdoors wear khaki colors? It is neutral and therefore almost invisible to certain pests.
Wearing yellow clothing will actually attract them ~ so don't.
My Vegan friend insists that mosquitos can scense the blood of meateaters, and are more susceptible to being located and bitten.
Hope this helps.
