Im hypermetabolistic & eat LOTS of sugar. AM a magnet. Have been told its the SUGAR they go after most. Taking garlic & Vit B12 daily helps but only DEET works 100%.

Hi love the videos. I've been watching Alec Steele a blacksmith who works with Damascus alot and he explains that he used ferric chloride to etch the damascus and because there are different ammounts of carbon in the layers one turns dark and the other one not so much, and I've been looking around google and YouTube for a video explaining this and I haven't been able to find one maybe you could be the first to make a video on it

Mosquitoes eat me alive. When I first moved to Louisiana, whenever I would make my bed, I would find tons of dead mosquitoes in my blankets and sheets from them trying to get after me at night.

Do you think there could ever be a vaccine you can give to someone to prevent mosquito bites all together. And eventually if everyone has this vaccine the mosquitoes would die off and go extinct?

Just take Boswelia. And lower sugar intake. Being on keto diet helps. And take extra vitamin b1, or eat liver regularly.

I've found that if I reduce my consumption of potassium-rich fruits like bananas and cantaloupe, I get bit a whole lot less. Used to be a serious mosquito magnet, too! It's weird, but it really seemed to help. Probably another one of those sweat-smell factor things.

Lavender oil is a better mosquito repellent than deet, or anything else that i have tried. i live in Alaska, we have many different kinds of mosquitoes here...., Lavender works on them all.

Hey! I tend to get less eaten than those around me...could the fact that I am vegetarian have anything to do with it? Any scientific data on food consumption affecting attraction? There are also the old wives tales about garlic...scientific opinions about that?

I've heard that mosquitoes are not strong flyers, and therefore ceiling fans on your porch are enough to keep them at bay if you want to sit out on your rocking chair of an evening. Is this true?

this might be entirely anecdotal, but I remember when I lived in the swampy area outside of Houston a couple things we observed were that people who ate more fruit, especially bananas, tended to attract more mosquitos, but when those people started taking garlic pills, they became a less attractive meal. This might all be related to how they're attracted to sugar and repelled by certain smells. But it also might just be coincidental.

Mosquitoes do not like mint so if you apply mint oil to your clothes not recommended for skin, or lavender oil should keep those pesky parasites at Bay

All adult mosquitoes feed on the nectar or honey dew of plants to get sugar, and that provides enough nourishment for both males and females to live, but females also need to produce eggs. To create eggs, females need protein, which they get from the blood of animals.

How can a mosquito "sense" CO2 from a distance. It has to reach their organs to be sensed.

The last science on this that I heard was if you eat apple cider vinegar like cucumber slices soaking in vinagar; there is something about it that makes you less attractive to the blood suckers!

i wonder if mosquitos are a bit like dolphins and their puff-puff-pufferfish-pass highs... they can learn that alcohol-laced blood will get them buzzed, so they go for the person that smells of alcohol.
