In many parts of the world there is risk of a mosquito bite mainly in warms parts. But what effect does the booze in your blood have on the insect itself?
why mosquitoes appear to be more attracted to drinkers, no one is quite sure about it. We do know mosquitoes home onto humans thanks to two chemicals we exhale when we breathe carbon dioxide and octanol. (Octanol: It a secondary alcohol created from the breakdown of linoleic acid, is also commonly known as “mushroom alcohol” because it’s the compound that helps give mushrooms their taste.)Another study also found mosquitoes were attracted to those who had been drinking. The ethanol in the alcohol we are drinking and that we are excreting in minute quantities through ours sweat may be signal to the biting insects that there’s a meal nearby.
The level of exhaled carbon dioxide and body temperature had no effect on human attractiveness to mosquitoes. Despite individual volunteer variation, beer consumption consistently increased attractiveness to mosquitoes, the report’s findings notedIf we hungry and we are walking around, More likely to make we go in one direction is the smell of food that strong smell of Mo:Mo for instance. Now we might not eat the Mo:Mo, but it shows us there’s food around there.
