5 mg OR HIGHER DOSE OF VITAMIN B1 EACH DAY WILL REPEL MOSQUITOES. TAKE A B - COMPLEX MULTIVITAMIN EACH DAY WITH AT LEAST 5mg B1(THIAMINE) . YOU WILL PRODUCE A SCENT THAT IS REPULSIVE TO MOSQUITOES!!! NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT SHIRT COLOR OR CITRONELLA CANDLES!!!

@Dave Jan VITAMIN B1 (THIAMIN) is the key. If you take a multivitamin with B1 , you will produce a scent that is repulsive to mosquitoes and undetectable to humans. I'm "O" type blood and mosquitoes used to bite me frequently. Since I've started the B1 , nothing!

Offer mosquitoes a different snack, you say? Just tell your friends to do the opposite of everything Hank said and, voila, you're no longer the popular one... to mosquitoes or humans

Mosquitoes being attracted to dark colored surfaces is also a surviving skill. Every time I try to pursue and kill a mosquito in my room that has white colored walls, they fly towards the door witch is dark colored brown, so it is almost impossible to see them. The mosquitoes that do so escape and survive.

why did I not hear any theory about the possible connection between bug repellent and what makes them come to you. like how venom something used to kill or incapacitate has been reversed to do the opposite. why not look into bug repellent and see how it keeps them from finding us possibly showing us how they find to begin with

So what do you do for a living? I place bowls of sweat in a wind tunnel and then watch to see if mosquitoes will fly toward them. Somebody pays me to do this.

What if they land on darker objects because they themselves are a dark colour? Less about their target being visible and more about the mosquitoes themselves being camouflaged while doing their thing?

the only thing I've found that works is to grow a very excess amount of citronella plants placing them kinda like a fence around my porch. My porch is 10x10×8 and including the hanging baskets I have 30 citronella plants 5 on the ground 5 in the air on all 3 open sides. I also have them planted in my garden but not in as much excess there is 1 garden bed to the left and right of my porch mostly comprised of lavender, marigolds, lemon balm, basil and citronella plants. All of which are mosquito repelling. My backyard is the only place I can stay outside and not get eaten alive but even still if I spend too much time tword the edge of the yard I start getting bitten again but only if I'm out on the edge for an hour or more. When the plants I can't bring in die when the season is over I juice them to make mosquito candles for the following mosquito season.

Alcohol lowers the viscosity of blood making things easier to flow, maybe causing the skin to deposit more volatile compounds than usual?

Finding that mosquitoes land on darker surfaces even when termperature is the same is NOT proof that they don't seek warm surfaces; they're programmed to seek dark colors after generations of such surfaces' being warmer. This is an example of how hard it can be to structure an experiment with no holes in it. "All things being equal" is tougher to achieve in biology than in physics; those darned variables, always testing your claim to empirical clarity, solid results. The cleverest ones find a way to measure better, if not perfectly, to derive important detail even as a bigger picture remains vague. We're always chasing; we'll never "catch" complete understanding, tho observation and quantum computers will take us far.

I mean if I don't touch the bite when I get it, it goes away in a few hours. Edit: There was this one time where I was at a mosquito infested house (someone left the door open and they got in). While we vacuumed, swatted, and burned most of them I woke dripping in sweat and pretty covered in bites. I assume there's an extent to which my body could've gained a sort of immunity to bites. I also now realize I should've maybe seen a doctor afterwards but oh well.

This clown was very careful to use language to support his radical Left-Wing agenda BUT he Fcked it up!!!! When talking about a pregnant woman he said _"a fetus is growing inside of you"_ instead of the OBVIOUS *"there's a BABY growing inside of you!"* but then he slipped up when talking about the mosquitoes, he said "They Nourishing their Eggs" then "You will be helping all the Baby Momma's out there"
