Travellers

Mosquitoes are the best known vectors and people around the planet.

They need water

They need water and a warm temperature to complete their life cycle and have an enormous capacity for adaptation, since if the conditions are not adequate, their eggs are inactive until they are suitable

Females

Only mosquitoes female bites, because they need the blood to develop their eggs

Why do they bite me?

The mosquito females use their sense of smell to detect the carbon dioxide we exhale with respiration and odors such as perspiration or urine, as well as body temperature to choose their victims

Some Escape

Some people have a natural odor that camouflages them and protects them from mosquito bites

Is there any way to escape?

Fortunately science is discovering substances and natural extracts (like citriodiol) that make us invisible to mosquitoes
