So many things in life are acquired tastes with personal preferences. It seems mosquitoes are no different.
The IRD Research Centre in France recently held a closed environment study in Burkina Faso, Africa to define mosquito determining factors. Half of the participants in the study were given water to drink and the other half beer. Beer consumption on the part of the participants consistently increased their attractiveness to mosquitoes.
While it was determined that the change in breath may have been a factor, it was also noted that it could be learned behavior, since a host under the influence may have slower reflexes. Bottom-line, if you’ve had a few beers, you are less likely to swat at a pesky mosquito!
With so many variables, the one thing we can be sure of are Bite-Lite® Natural Mosquito Repellent Candles. These mosquito candles are the most effective, natural deterrents to mosquitoes.
