The 8 best things that attract mosquitoes, don't leave your cheese lying around |  Topito

It’s summer, holidays. The sun shines. Ice creams are good. Cocktails are fun. You have honey-colored skin (and it definitely is). You thought that nothing could contaminate the happiness of August, until these pdf of mosquitoes remind you of their existence … Hard. To find your Dolce Vitta without mosquitoes (“mosquitoes” in Polish, I believe), it is important to identify what attracts them. Surprise, light is not part of this top! No, they are absolutely not attracted to your light bulb, but to everything in this top. Stop storing camembert in your bedside table, it will already be much better.

1. CO2 from our breath

Ah bah super, here’s some good news to start this top. Mosquitoes are attracted to CO2, THE thing we constantly produce when we breathe. As if that weren’t annoying enough, I’m able to pick up that smell from 30 meters away.

The solution ? Stop breathing. Dangerous, but effective against mosquitoes. Live or drive away your creatures, you have to choose.

2. Our body odor

Oh great! Another thing you can’t really change. Body odor, perfume, shower gel, … Mosquitoes love it.

The solution ? Stop washing. Or at least stop washing with smelly stuff. Choose the scent “Graillon” or “tuna juice” to minimize the risks.

3. Sweating

It is also part of the constituents of our body odor: sweat makes mosquitoes panic. The more you sweat, the more it stinks, the happier they are. They particularly like the waste products it contains, such as lactic acid or ammonia. What a pile of dirt.

The solution ? Don’t sweat. Go on.

4. Some colors

In the summer, there are clearly the colors of the clothes not to wear: red, orange, black and cyan blue. Our little friends (really not) mosquitoes love it and won’t hesitate to let you know with a nice bite between the two eyes.

The solution ? Leave your Desigual collection in the closet. Well hidden. Really well hidden.

5. Stagnant water

We have more than you think! Bowls for animal water, saucers under the flower pots, forgotten ashtrays full of rainwater, … These little springs are a real paradise for mosquitoes. A privileged place for females who want to lay their eggs. Eggs that will become larvae. Then the larvae that will become a horde of bloodthirsty mosquitoes. In your garden ALARMING.

The solution ? Move. It is safer.


6. Heat

Like many insects, mosquitoes particularly appreciate heat and humidity, which are ideal for their survival. The heat wave, for them, is a gift sent directly from the angels.

The solution ? I will live on the ice floe. Or in Brittany, in fact.

7. Cheese

Earlier I was telling you about lactic acid: well, this is the jackpot. Not to mention the smell of bacteria in the cheese that makes mosquitoes love too. In short, a food to avoid if you want to keep mosquitoes away in the house.

The solution ? Eat only fries.

8. Drink alcohol

Who would have believed it? Mosquitoes, in fact, is Dédé the drunkard uncle! Other than cheese, these bon vivants never say no to a little alcoholic blood, a way to not let go, what. According to a French study conducted in 2011, the alcohol contained in some beer cans can increase the number of bites by 30%.

The solution ? Get bitten. It’s boring, but still less boring than a life without Ricard.
