Quote:Roughly 20 percent of people are more frequent meal tickets for mosquitoes than the rest of the population, and Smithsonian Magazine set out to investigate: Why?

Beer drinkers beware. Mosquitoes love the brew.

A Smithsonian Magazine blogger wrote: “Just a single 12-ounce bottle of beer can make you more attractive to the insects, one study found. But even though researchers had suspected this was because drinking increases the amount of ethanol excreted in sweat, or because it increases body temperature, neither of these factors were found to correlate with mosquito landings, making their affinity for drinkers something of a mystery.”

And here I thought they loved me because I'm beautiful. coffeetime.gif
The funny thing, when I first moved here - they hunted me down as a delicacy. Now that I've been bitten hundreds of times they don't give a damn about me anymore.
Guess my blood smells like Finnish regulars to them now, which is fine by me.
Let them devote their attention to other immy's chuckle.gif

A little garlic will keep them away. It also keeps vampires, another species of blood suckers, away.

Garlic might keep most suitors away as well. At least until another garlic eater finds you to be irresistible ... a match made in heaven - a stinky heaven.

Pray for me. hug.gif
