HOW TO AVOID MOSQUITOES:
- For such a small organism, mosquitoes are equipped with a lot of complex systems to locate their next meal. To escape their detection:
- Dont breathe: Receptors on their antennae can detect the carbon dioxide released when we exhale from up to 75 feet away.
- Dont sweat: They discern the presence of octenol, a chemical released in human sweat.
- Stay cool: Heat sensors around the mosquitos mouth can detect the warmth of your body and help them locate the best capillaries for tapping.
- Since you cant hold your breath forever, you should know that nature produces a number of natural, effective insect repellents. In fact, the repellent used in Thermacell products is a synthetic form of a chemical that occurs naturally in chrysanthemum flowers. It wont harm humans or pets ” and tests by universities and government agencies have shown Thermacell is up to 96% effective in repelling mosquitoes.
