Attention Beer Lovers! Mosquitoes Love It Too!
Attention beer lovers! If you want to enjoy a ‘cold one’ outside then it may be worth you reading up on why supping the suds could lead to a mosquito finding you a little bit of a tasty treat. A recent study found that drinking a single beer increased how a mosquito is attracted to you. Here’s more in this article.
As the number of people infected with the mosquito-borne Zika virus continues to grow in the U.S., the trend may be especially nerve-wracking to those who tend to get riddled with mosquito bites whenever they step into the great outdoors.
Pregnant women are those at the highest risk from the virus, and therefore a beer shouldn’t be on the agenda, however as the article states, they also give off more carbon dioxide, so these needle nosed pests are attracted to them too.
Of course, you can take preventative measures too and protect your back yard from biters. Mosquito control is the best form of proactive protection.
Mosquitoes need a precious-little amount of water to breed, so reducing, if not eliminating, standing water is the first step in eradicating the mosquito threat.
Every step you can take to keep yourself safe from mosquitoes and allow you to enjoy time outside with family, friends and a beer or two is totally worth the effort.
