Need To Know About Mosquitoes:
#1 – Mosquitoes are the deadliest animals in the world. Okay, they’re not animals, they’re insects, but they are the most deadly thing on this planet. Why? Because they carry so many deadly diseases and viruses that affect millions of people each year.
#2 - Only female mosquitoes are biting you. Didn’t know that, did you? Male mosquitoes only feed on flower nectar leaving the females to consume blood for reproduction. When female mosquitoes aren’t reproducing, they also consume flower nectar.
#3 - All mosquitoes require water to breed. That’s why you’ve heard so much about mosquitoes and standing water. Only a few inches of water allow mosquitoes to deposit eggs.
#4 - Mosquitoes can detect carbon dioxide from 75 feet away, which is how they’re able to locate humans. After CO2 detection, the mosquito flies rapidly around detecting the origin of CO2, looking for a blood meal. Yeah, sounds awful.
