Recently, a hot search topic on Weibo has attracted the attention of netizens: eating sweets and drinking beer is the most popular mosquito. In fact, people who like mosquitoes can do more than that. It is easy for several people to win the favor of mosquitoes. Tong Xiaoyun, a dermatologist at Zhejiang Hospital, said that these people are the objects that mosquitoes like.
Mosquitoes have a darkening effect. Mosquitoes are afraid of light but do not like light too dark. They like to be in low light conditions. During the day, when people wear dark clothes, the reflected light is darker, just to vote for it. Therefore, people who wear dark clothes and dark-skinned people are more likely to be desecrated.
Easy sweating person
Mosquitoes have a special liking for people who sweat more and have faster metabolism. Tong Xiaoyun explained that sweat is a foraging signal of mosquitoes. Because sweat contains a lot of amino acids, lactic acid and ammonia compounds, mosquitoes are very sensitive to this. Once they smell the smell of these substances, their appetite is widened. Therefore, some people who have just finished exercising and sweating are the “favorites” of mosquitoes.
When people are engaged in sports or physical labor, the breathing will be accelerated, so that the carbon dioxide exhaled is relatively more, which is convenient for the mosquito to perform directional tracking. Therefore, people who are gasping, fat people, and people who are breathing heavily are more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes.
The use of fragrances such as perfumes, hair gels, and face creams increases the probability of being bitten by mosquitoes. Because most cosmetics contain chemical ingredients that attract mosquitoes. Therefore, the person who wears makeup is more sought after by mosquitoes than the one who is facing the sky.
Pregnant women are also more attractive to mosquitoes than ordinary people. Because pregnant women will have a higher expiratory volume during the second trimester, and the temperature of the pregnant woman’s abdomen will rise, it is easy to be harassed by mosquitoes.
The baby has a strong milky taste, the mosquito will bite because of the milky taste, and the baby has no defense ability, and it is easy to become the object of mosquito attack.
