Scientists finally explain WHY mosquitos relentlessly bite some people and ignore others - and what you can do to make them less interested

Scientists have revealed why some people are more prone to mosquito bites than others and busted the top myths that claim to keep the blood sucking critters away.

American entomologist Dan Kline has spent years studying the insects and believes he has come across important clues to explain their behaviour.

One of the more bizarre discoveries he made was that mosquitos were attracted to smelly feet.


In particular, they were attracted to a bacteria that gave off the same smell as Limburger cheese.


Dr Kline conducted a study in the 1990s to determine if mosquitos were more attracted to particular types of cheese based on smell.

He experimented with different variations and discovered blue cheese and Limburger were the most popular.

Dr Kline then presented them with a pair of smelly socks he had been wearing for four days and discovered the mosquitos were immediately drawn to them.

He pointed out the link between the smelly feet and Limburger made sense as the cheese was traditionally produced by barefoot monks.

'The monks used their feet in the production of this cheese,' he told ABC. 'Thus, the toe bacteria were involved in the production of Limburger cheese.'

Dr Kline also discovered that mosquitos were drawn to scents produced by bacteria produced on human skin as well as volatile chemicals that are exhaled out of the mouth.


He learned his colleague naturally produced a chemical that dulled the sense of smell in mosquitos and was less likely to be bitten by one.

'Her ratio of this compound compared to other compounds was higher,' he said.

Other factors included body heat, genetics, and what cosmetic products you wear, and some people's skin reacts to bites differently and may not even notice them.

Different mosquitoes are also attracted to different parts of the body, some that certain people cover and others don't as much.

Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.

Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

No, it's actually true. People who meditate deeply aren't bothered by mosquitos.

They're still attacked by the mosquitos of course, they just aren't bothered by it.

How does rh negative blood play into this? Rh negatives tend to have a lower body temp. We sweat less and we smell less. Mosquitos don't bother me much.
