What Attracts Mosquitoes: How to Repel them from your Yard

Jul 4, 2015 | Uncategorized

As we continue to move into the summer months the days are longer and temperatures in the Houston and outlying areas are soaring into the low 90’s. Almost everyone agrees that we love to spend time outdoors. Unfortunately spending any amount of time outside the home also means sharing your outdoor space with uninvited guests. Cooking out, lounging by the pool, gardening, or playing games keep you and your family at the mercy of these relentless little blood suckers known as mosquitoes. Approximately 200 species of mosquitoes can be found in the United States. Mosquitoes carry disease, and it is has been estimated that two million people worldwide die each year from mosquito related diseases, the most common being malaria. Mosquitoes can also transmit West Nile virus, yellow fever and dengue fever.

Bio-Tech Pest Control has provided the following list of mosquito facts to help you better understand why mosquitoes are attracted to us in the first place:

• Mosquitoes are attracted to chemical compounds expelled from the skin. They can detect these chemicals from as many as 50 yards away. A human being can produce as many as 340 chemical odors during perspiration.
• Mosquitoes can smell human breath and are attracted to the carbon dioxide we emit as we breathe out.
• Mosquitoes are attracted to body heat and use heat sensors around their mouths to zone in on our location.
• A mosquito is capable of drinking up to three times its body weight in blood.
• Only the females bite – the female needs the protein in your blood to help her eggs develop.
