Do you know those people who never bite mosquitoes? Those people who can go out in the shorts and vest and still leave unscathed?
I’m one of them. Jealous?
On the other hand, my sister and mother are not so fortunate – mosquitoes like to attack them wherever we go. From the beach to the cottage, if the mosquitoes are around, they get the brunt of it.
But why some people, such as my mother and sister, are constantly attacked by our odious “friends”, while others, like me, should never worry?
One popular myth explains this by the fact that the blood of mosquito victims is sweeter. But, unfortunately, this explanation is just this – a myth.
It’s not just blind luck, is it?
No, mosquitoes do have a preference when it comes to who they attack – this is confirmed in various studies.
And it turns out that the preference may be due to the smell of your skin. At least that’s what Tech Insider says.
Our skin is covered with a variety of bacteria – an estimated one trillion. And it turns out that bacteria are very different from human to human, which leads to each of us falling into our own unique mixture of chemicals.
Some combinations of chemicals make some people more attractive to mosquitoes than others. The human body temperature also has such an effect, so people who are engaged in the open air, it seems, also attract a lot of insects.
Other things contribute to the attraction of mosquitoes, as well as, for example, a man’s attire-the old belief that dark colors attract mosquitoes is very true. It is also true that mosquitoes are more likely to attack those who have recently drunk alcohol.
