Hunter or the Hunted?

Two things that make summer unpleasant, orange cones and mosquitos, since the cones do some good, I am here to help you battle the little fly if it was translated in spanish.

Skeeter season is here there are alot of deterrents to keep those blood sucking creedants.

Most people use sprays and lotions, but over the past couple of years there has been different ways  to rid the  swamp birds so they would ruin your outdoor fun.

Here’s some facts about theses pests

 People wearing black clothing will attract the little buzzers. Mosquitoes can smell the carbon dioxide from your breath from 60-75 ft away. Mosquito’s sense of smell is 10,000 times greater than humans! Eating garlic or taking a garlic pill daily is supposed to keep the mosquitoes away. Garlic would keep anything away! Male mosquitoes can find females by listening to the sound of their wings beating. The males identify them by the pitch of the female’s wings. Mosquito’s wings beat at 300 to 600 times per second. An adult mosquito consumes 5-millionths of a liter in a blood meal. A female mosquito weighs only 1-15,000 ounce or 2.0 milligrams. Adult mosquitoes can live as long as 5 months. Their wings beat from 300-600 time per second! It could take several months for a larva to develop to an adult in cold water. Eggs from flood water mosquitoes could remain dormant for several years. They will hatch when they get covered with water.

Mosquito repellents don’t actually repel the mosquitoes but blocks their sensory receptors which acts like a human shield But in the next blog I will discuss the different types of repellant and the pros and cons of each one.
