Dealing with Summer Mosquitoes

Countless people enjoy spending the summertime outdoors. However, the season often brings a greater mosquito presence. Sometimes it appears as if one person has a tendency of getting “bitten” by a mosquito than the other, and there is a reason for that.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/05/2019 -- Female mosquitoes are the ones that go around biting people in order to procure blood to produce eggs. When the mosquito smells carbon dioxide, it will go into a hunter mode, with heightened senses of smell and vision and faster wing flapping. The mosquito may also show a greater attraction to dark colors. Hence, it makes sense to avoid wearing dark colors during the summer.

In addition to carbon dioxide and sweat, mosquitoes is capable of detecting heat and humidity being produced by a human body. The possible combination of dark clothes plus profuse sweat can increase the odds of being a potential mosquito bite candidate.

Always keep repellent handy and bring along a mosquito net any time the day calls for being outdoors for a prolonged period.
