You may have heard the explanation that mosquito ‘victims’ have sweeter blood, but this is not the case. Rather, it is the fact that people vary in the types of bacteria that exist on their skin, and some bacteria emit better smells than others, which determine whether the mosquitoes want a taste!
In addition to differing bacteria, carbon dioxide given off in our breath, the heat of our bodies and some other surprising factors make those who are bitten frequently. Mosquitoes carry many potentially life-threatening diseases, making good choices concerning repellents is extremely important. Mosquito bites aren’t just an annoyance, but involves many health risks.
