I made this guide because I can’t help but feel like mosquitoes love me. When I’m in a group of people, they seem to all come after me. Even with the bug repellent on in full force. So here are some tips to reduce the bites.
- Reduce your carbon dioxide.
People with a larger body mass and those that are pregnant produce more CO2, which means they’re more likely to be bitten. So lose weight and don’t get pregnant. Just joking. Pop them babies girl.
- Cool your body temperature.
You’re just too hot and those itchy buggers know it. This means again, people who have high body weight and are pregnant are more likely to have higher body temperature.
- Your blood type is a factor.
People with Type O blood are much more attractive to mosquitoes than people with Type A blood.
- Some people secrete chemicals through their skin that indicate what blood type they have.
- The composition of the microbes on your skin is another factor.
We all have our own precious flora living on our skin, and some of these compositions are more attractive to mosquitoes than others.
- Don’t exercise.
Exercise increases the amount of lactic acid your skin makes and increases your body temperature. This is sort of like someone making delicious, buttery movie theatre popcorn to mosquitoes.
- Don’t drink beer.
I don’t which one is harder for me, not to exercise, lose some body weight or don’t drink beer. One bottle of beer is enough to make you more attractive to insects in general. But no one really knows why. Too bad me drinking more beer doesn’t make me more attractive to the mens.
To sum it all up on how to prevent mosquito bites. Don’t be overweight, have too much muscle, exercise too much, be pregnant, or drink beer. Also, change your blood type and your skin flora while you’re at it, god dammit. And if you manage to do that, let me know how you did in the comments below.
