Do Bananas Attract Mosquitoes?

Bananas have not been proven to attract or repel mosquitoes. Experts agree that consuming bananas or other foods do not make us more or less attractive to mosquitoes, but what’s in our body’s natural chemistry – etched in our DNA! There is evidence to support that people with Type O blood are more attractive to mosquitoes.

Maybe you have heard that certain foods and drinks offer “natural” mosquito protection. What would you say if we told you that all these supposed methods of mosquito protection are ineffective?

Each year around this time, we begin to see all sorts of would-be natural methods of mosquito protection, which compels us to call them out for what they are – B-A-N-A-N-A-S! Likely, these false claims are based on hearsay, due to ingredients of particular foods and drinks, which one thinks might repel these little blood-suckers. While folks do not intend to pass on harmful information, it can be very harmful if taken seriously.  Don’t rely on viral misinformation to protect your family from mosquitoes in Rhode Island!

Eating bananas does not equate to real Charlestown mosquito control.

Wouldn’t it be nice if we really could eat healthily and protect ourselves from mosquito bites and mosquito-borne illnesses? When it comes to Charlestown mosquito protection, bananas are not going to cut it! There is zero scientific evidence that eating bananas will keep hungry female mosquitoes from making your family her blood meal. Don’t bet on bananas. Call in the professionals at Mosquito Squad of Rhode Island for true mosquito control and protection!

Cheers to real Charlestown mosquito protection!

One of the bigger myths of mosquito bite prevention is that drinking beer will drive away these winged offenders. This too, is untrue! Dr. Jonathan Day, entomologist and mosquito expert, says that mosquitoes can actually become more attracted to us after we drink beer. Consuming alcohol raises our metabolic rate, which causes us to produce more CO2, the main source of attraction for mosquitoes. Rhode Island residents must be vigilant in preparing their yards for cookouts and outdoor parties this year with professional mosquito control.
