Mosquitoes Remember The Taste of Your Blood
This is the time of year in Maine were mosquitoes are biting.
Some people get more often than others and there is a reason for that. New research from Virginia Tech University found that mosquitoes remember the taste and smell of human blood. They often pick people whose blood is 'sweeter' to them.
When two people are standing nest to each other there is a good possibility that one will get bit more than the other because a mosquito likes their taste better. They have the ability to remember the taste and go back for more.
Another thing mosquitoes remember is your swat. It a defensive measure so when they come back for a second or third helping. This helps them remember a particular delicious host and their swatting techniques.
According to studyfinds.org mosquitoes learn which individuals to attack and which to leave alone.
