Why You Always Fallen in Love with Mosquitos in Summer

Why You Always 'Fallen in Love' with Mosquitos in Summer?

* Mosquitos says: We love when you work up a sweat.

You think we're drawn by the aroma of your "sweet blood," but it's really the carbon dioxide you exhale that makes us beeline toward you. The harder you breathe, the more CO2 you emit, so you're especially attractive after a jog.

* Mosquitos says: Blame the ladies

Hate getting bitten up?Blame the ladies. We don't like to admit this, but male mosquitoes do not eat human blood: They get all their nutrition from plant nectar. We females need your blood, which contains a protein that helps our eggs develop. After we have a blood meal, we can lay anywhere from 100 to 400 eggs.

* Mosquitos says: We love beer too

So do some of us. It's crazy, but we can tell when you've been drinking because your skin chemistry changes, and it lures us in.

* Mosquitos says: Smelly feet are simply delicious.

In fact, scientists have shown that we find your tootsies ten times more alluring than Limburger cheese (but really our favorite body part is your hand).

* Mosquitos says: If you want to evade us at a party, don't be a wallflower.

When we smell a huge mass of carbon dioxide, we fly toward it; after we get there, it's easier to attack the people on the perimeter of the group than those smack-dab in the center.

* Mosquitos says: We won't like your home be well tended

If your home's landscaping is well tended, we won't like it as much. We like to hang out in thick, overgrown vegetation. The darker and more humid, the better.

If you keep your lawn mowed, pool skimmed, and bushes trimmed, your backyard won't be very appealing. Removing puddles of stagnant water is also a great way to repel us - that's where we like to lay our eggs.

* Mosquitos says: We hate DEET-free repellent

DEET, along with picaridin, is among the stronger types that help keep us away. Each type blocks different receptors that allow us to track you down. We're also not big fans of lemon eucalyptus, although these are a little weaker than DEET and picaridin. We're thrilled when you buy DEET-free repellent.

* Mosquitos says: UV bug zappers will lure us more

Got those CO2-emitting traps in your yard? Great! You may think you're outsmarting us with these devices, which emit carbon dioxide to lure us into a trap. But they may attract more of us than they are able to trap, increasing our presence in your yard. UV bug zappers aren't effective either: Only a fraction of the pests they kill are mosquitoes.

* Mosquitos says: We loves pregnant women as well as babies

Pregnant? Yum. If you're a woman who's expecting, you emit more carbon dioxide and your abdomen has a higher temperature than when you're not pregnant, drawing some of us right to you. Sorry, baby, but we loves your future mommy same as we love you.

* Mosquitos says: West Nile may more harmful at the end of summer.

When it comes to West Nile, end-of-summer bites may do more harm.

It's simple logic: We bite birds who have the West Nile virus; then we bite humans and spread it. By summer's end, we've had more chances to bite infected birds.
