How Do Mosquitoes Target Humans?

December 19, 2023

Every summer, just as we start to come outside to savor the warmth, mosquitoes reenter the world with equal enthusiasm. Having laid dormant for months, mosquitoes emerge ravenous and aggressive, ready to take advantage of the brief time they have on earth. In an ideal world, everyone and everything would be able to enjoy life, but a happy mosquito is probably the one with its mouth lodged in your arm; this makes a person profoundly unhappy. Since time immemorial, humans have struggled to combat mosquitoes and their uncanny ability to seek us out, even in the dark. With the scientific capabilities we have today, we’ve begun to understand what makes mosquitoes tick, including how they can target their food so effectively.

Why you should consider Hingham mosquito control

As you may have noticed before, keeping mosquitoes away is profoundly difficult. Even when you use the strongest mosquito repellant available, mosquitoes still feel the need to make annoying flybys to give you a closer look. There are a few reasons for their irrepressible behavior, and each is attached to a mosquito’s head. Despite our perception that these insects are unsophisticated, mosquitoes have a wide array of sensory components that take temperature, color, and scent into account, making them highly effective hunters. Unfortunately for us, a mosquito’s ability to detect us with numerous senses means that most mosquito control is ineffective, despite what the product might claim. The reason for such ineffectiveness is that most mosquito control tries to treat the symptoms of the issue, and not the source of the problem. For example, the electric mosquito zappers you see at home improvement stores are one of a huge variety of ineffective “treatments” that are simply a waste of money. Fortunately, there are other mosquito control avenues available to you.
