Why do mosquitoes Bite?
Blood is not food for mosquitoes at all. They suck blood when she is about to lay eggs. This blood provides protein to their eggs. If they do not suck blood, their eggs will not hatch or they will hatch very weakly. Mosquitoes use the sap of various grasses and plants as food.
Remember that mosquitoes can sense where you are from a distance of 160 feet.
O blood group is the target of mosquitoes, followed by B and then A. 85% of people’s body emits such signals that mosquitoes feel and guess your blood group.
Generally, healthier people, pardon the pun, obese people exhale more carbon dioxide, so it attracts the mosquito to see where he is. That is why mosquitoes come straight to your face.
The things that attract mosquitoes are sweat and a person whose body is warm for some reason. Warm body is their favorite body. For this reason, if you sit slowly during exercise, then your body gets warm and you sweat, then you start hearing the sounds of mosquitoes.
There are some bacteria on our body for protection, which makes them produce chemicals on the skin that mosquitoes can detect.
Pregnant women are more susceptible to mosquitoes because they exhale more carbon dioxide than normal women. A pregnant woman releases 21% more carbon dioxide than a normal woman and their body is also warmer than others.
Dark colored clothes i.e. black, red and similar bright colors are visible to mosquitoes from a distance.
And those people who drink alcohol are more victims.
