What kind of people do mosquitoes bite most?(1)

"What kind of people do mosquitoes bite?" has always been a research topic that scientists are very interested in. It has not been fully studied yet. From the confirmed results, the following kinds of people will make mosquitoes "a soft spot." .
   Mosquitoes like people with well-developed sweat glands and high body temperature. Sweat contains a lot of amino acids, lactic acid and ammonia compounds. Mosquitoes are very sensitive to this. Once they smell these substances, their appetite will be greatly increased. Therefore, people who sweat a lot are more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes. Scientists have also discovered that mosquitoes choose their favorite prey from different scents. Bacteria on human skin can aggravate the smell of sweat, which can also increase the appetite of mosquitoes. Therefore, changing clothes frequently and taking a bath frequently in summer can reduce mosquito bites.

   In addition, there is a heated body in the tentacles of mosquitoes. It is very sensitive to temperature. As long as there is a slight temperature difference, you can immediately notice that the body of a sweating person dissipates heat quickly, and it will also be attractive to mosquitoes.

   Mosquitoes like people who are tired or breathing faster. This is because people breathe faster after engaging in sports or physical labor. Some people have a larger lung capacity or a faster breathing rhythm, and they exhale relatively more carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide gas will form a humid and warm airflow about 1 meter above the head. Mosquitoes are more sensitive to this and will smell it. Scientists have long ago discovered that carbon dioxide has a strong attraction to mosquitoes.

   Mosquitoes like people who wear dark clothes. Black is the first choice for mosquitoes to attack. For example, the Aedes mosquito is what we commonly call the flower mosquito. It likes to land on black clothes the most, followed by blue, red, and green colors. Mosquitoes don't like to bite people in white clothes. In the same way, mosquitoes love to bite people with darker skin or red skin.

   Mosquitoes like fat people. This is related to fat people like sweating and breathing heavily, and fat people usually like to wear dark clothes, which are more likely to attract mosquitoes. Generally speaking, men attract more mosquitoes than women, young people than the elderly, and healthy people than patients. This is because there are more secretions on the surface of the skin.
   In addition, children have a strong metabolism and are also favored by mosquitoes. During the regular vacation, women's basal metabolism increases, resulting in increased body odor and exhaled carbon dioxide, and they also attract mosquitoes.
