Drink Less Booze and Mosquitoes Will Leave You Alone

MAN AM I ITCHY. I was devoured by mosquitoes over the weekend, and am surprised I am alive to tell the story. It is the time of year we spend the most amount of time outside. Unfortunately, natures biggest killer also enjoys summer days.

If you are like me, you enjoy a cocktail around the campfire. And, you always wonder “Why am I being bombarded by mosquitoes and nobody else is?” The Journal of American Mosquito Control Association did a study on the effects of alcohol and mosquito bites.

According to the studyTurns out mosquitoes like getting a little tipsy, because after just one beer, there was a significant increase in mosquito landings. Things like movement, an increase in body heat, and carbon dioxide production—burps—can increase their draw as well.

Less beer and less burps? That could be a tough one.
