I learned that they are attracted to perfumes.

Darlene on April 20, 2016 at 1:50 PM said...

If my husband and i are outside he never gets stung and I will every time, even if I have bug spray on. He says its because I am sweeter than he is.

Cathy Lewis on April 21, 2016 at 11:51 AM said...

My granddaughter, 5, would love this as she loves bugs!

Heather D on April 21, 2016 at 4:29 PM said...

I learned that the prefer adults over children and are attracted to certain perfumes.

Cassandra Eastman on April 21, 2016 at 9:50 PM said...

I learned that bug spray is effective initially but begins to wear off as soon as it's applied.

matope on April 21, 2016 at 9:55 PM said...

They're attracted to perfumes. makes you rethink that awesome smelling body wash! :P

Ms. Anita on April 23, 2016 at 8:00 AM said...

I've taken the quiz on another blog, so I knew all the right answers this time. I remember that I messed up on the right color light to help distract or deter them. :)

Ms. Anita on April 23, 2016 at 8:03 AM said...

I have lots of mosquito stories I could share! One that just popped into my head... happened over 30 years ago. I spent the night at a cousin's house in the "Piney Woods" of northeast Texas. We slept outside in a tent. Little did I know that the tent apparently had a hole big enough for mosquitos to enter because the next morning, I had so many bites on my arms and legs I couldn't count them all. (Talk about wishing I'd had some "Off!")

Ty Beth on April 23, 2016 at 8:04 AM said...

The most surprising thing I learned is Perfumes, scented soaps, and lotions can attract adult mosquitoes just like standing water sources and exhaled gases do.

jill190 on April 23, 2016 at 9:02 AM said...

The bugs are attracted to perfumes.

jill190 on April 23, 2016 at 9:04 AM said...

Cover up at dusk and dawn mosquitoes love to eat then

Renee on April 23, 2016 at 9:41 AM said...

I learned that male mosquitoes feed on plant nectar.

Renee on April 23, 2016 at 9:43 AM said...

Invest in some unscented health and beauty products because mosquitoes are attracted to perfumes, scented lotions, etc.

slogan1990 on April 23, 2016 at 6:36 PM said...

I learned that bug spray needs to be reapplied more often than we think!

Dorothy on April 23, 2016 at 7:51 PM said...

Definitely something I learned today, wow! didn't know..

Dorothy on April 23, 2016 at 7:53 PM said...

I got lost in the woods one time and it just happened to after a day of rain, I won't do that again, I am glad that I did wear long sleaves and pants..

Stephanie Grant on April 24, 2016 at 11:44 AM said...

I learned that: Bright colors have not been proven to attract adult mosquitoes, but strong smells like perfumes, scented soaps, and lotions do. Standing water sources and hot exhaled gases also attract mosquitoes.

Stephanie Grant on April 24, 2016 at 11:47 AM said...

We have a small goldfish pond in our back yard and living in rural AR the mosquitoes get pretty bad so we always make sure to add a mosquito donuts every few weeks, they wont harm the fish but they will keep the mosquito eggs from hatching!

Laura said...

I learned that male mosquitoes feed on plant nectars.

Laura said...

My mosquito tip would be to wear long sleeves and avoid going outside when mosquitoes are present. Also keep your dogs and cats current on heartworm prevention. So important, especially in the South!

Abigail on April 25, 2016 at 8:25 AM said...

Even 1 inch of standing water can become a breeding area for mosquitoes

Abigail on April 25, 2016 at 8:26 AM said...

My husband claims to not even need mosquito repellent since they will just bite me instead if we are out together.

j1man1r66 on April 28, 2016 at 4:53 AM said...

I learned that prime feeding hours are between Dusk and Dawn!!

lissa crane on May 8, 2016 at 7:51 AM said...

lissa crane on May 8, 2016 at 7:55 AM said...

I just learned a great mosquito tip that I'm dying to try-put Vick's Vapor Rub around your ankles and knees to keep the mosquito's away from your legs when wearing shorts! I hope it works! We get eaten alive every Summer, so I will try anything!

I really don't get bit that often. Hope I don't jinx myself. We use bug spray in the woods and try to keep standing water out of the yard.
