    Some people are real mosquito magnets. Why do some people seem to attract bloodthirsty mosquitoes from all over the neighborhood, while others can sit outside all evening without suffering a bite? These lucky people give off just the right combination of sights and smells. Mosquitoes use their senses to choose a favorite target in the crowd. Here are 10 ways to guarantee yourself lots of mosquito bites.

    1. Keep breathing.

    Mosquitoes detect carbon dioxide in the air, so the more you breathe, the more likely you are to become a blood meal. Carbon dioxide clues the mosquitoes in to the presence of a living, breathing, blood-pumping animal nearby. Once they sense it, mosquitoes usually fly in a zigzag pattern through the CO2 plume until they locate the source.

    2. Skip the shower.

    That's right, bring on the B.O. The more you stink, the easier it is for a blood-seeking mosquito to find you. Drop the deodorant, skip the soap, and get ready to start slapping skeeters.

    3. Run around.

    Mosquitoes first locate potential victims using their sight, and anything moving will be deemed worthy of a second look. Go outside and flag them down. Mow the lawn. Take a jog around the block. Jump up and down and shout "pick me, pick me!" The mosquitoes will pick you, for sure.

    4. Sweat a lot.

    Perspiration is the perfect combination of mosquito attractants – moisture and odors. Head outdoors on a hot, sticky summer evening, and work up a sweat. The mosquitoes will thank you.

    5. Stay warm.

    Think of mosquitoes as heat-seeking missiles. The warmer you are, the quicker they'll find you. Though mosquitoes can't sense your body heat from a distance, once they get within a few yards, your warmth will lure them in.

    6. Dress in dark colors.

    Research shows that mosquitoes respond best to dark colors, especially blue. Put away the khakis and white shirt; instead, don your jeans and a black t-shirt. You'll shine a spotlight on yourself that allows the mosquitoes to come in for a quicker landing.

    7. Wear perfume or cologne.

    If you just can't bear the body odor approach, do the opposite – bathe yourself in the strongest perfume money can buy. Floral scents are especially attractive to mosquitoes.

    8. Use alpha hydroxy products on your skin.

    Lactic acid, which our bodies produce naturally, is a big draw for mosquitoes. It just so happens that many skin care products contain lactic acid, too, and so might help boost your chemistry with these blood-seeking bugs. Look for lotions and creams labeled "alpha hydroxy," which provide the most lactic acid.

    9. Don't change your socks.

    Yes, this is based on actual scientific research. Mosquitoes love smelly feet. Entomologist Daniel L. Kline experimented with using dirty socks as a mosquito lure, and found his 3-day-old socks were irresistible to them. Specifically, it's the bacteria that grow on human feet that seems to draw a crowd.

    10. Drink beer and eat limburger cheese.

    Studies show people who've had a few beers score the most mosquito bites at the barbecue. Snack on some limburger cheese while enjoying a beer, and you will open yourself up to an all out assault. Limburger cheese is made with the same bacteria that makes your feet stink.

    有些人真的很招蚊子,为什么这些人夜夜被这些嗜血虫子骚扰个不停而其他人却能在外安坐整晚?原因就是他们身上散发出的气息正是蚊子所喜爱的,蚊子通常会利用自己的感官在人群中选择最爱攻击的目标。为何你会这么招蚊子,下文的10条原因则会对此作出详细的解释:

    1.不停地呼吸

    蚊子会在空气中探测二氧化碳,你呼吸的频率越高,就越可能成为被攻击的目标。因为二氧化碳会引领蚊子找到附近有生命气息有血液的生物,一旦他们探测到气息,通常会以之字路线飞行,借由二氧化碳的帮助寻找到目标。

    2.不勤洗澡

    对了,不勤洗澡就会导致身上散发出臭味,你身上的味道越糟糕,就越容易成为这种嗜血小虫的攻击目标。如果弄丢了除臭剂,又没肥皂的话,那就准备腾出手来打蚊子吧!

    3.跑个不停

    蚊子首先会通过观测定位潜在目标,任何移动的生物都有可能成为攻击对象。走出大门,引出蚊子,除草、围着小区跑一圈或是上蹿下跳的叫着"叮我,叮我啊!"绝对会让你成为蚊子们的攻击目标。

    4.流汗

    汗液是蚊子吸引剂潮湿和气味的完美结合。如果在闷热的夏夜跑出去溜达又弄出了一身臭汗,这些嗜血小虫一定会感激你的!

    5.体热

    蚊子如同热追踪导弹一般,你身上越暖和,就越容易被它们找到。虽然你身处远处,它们无法感知到你的体温,然而一旦你走近,它们就会在几码内感应到你身上的热度并蜂拥而至。

    6.着深色服装

    研究表明蚊子对于深色的东西特别敏感,尤其是蓝色。如果你放弃卡其裤子和白衬衫,穿上了牛仔裤和黑T恤,那么就等于你给自己打上了聚光灯并告诉这些小虫你就是最佳目标。

    7.搽香水和古龙水

    如果你不能忍受自己身上的味道,那就把自己浸在钱能买到的气味最强烈的香水中吧,香水中的花香成分可是极其吸引蚊子的哟!

    8.使用果酸护肤品

    我们身体自然而然产生的物质乳酸对蚊子具有极大的吸引力。现在很多的护肤产品或多或少的都含有乳酸,因此也增加了对这些嗜血虫子的吸引力。你可以看下身边标着含有果酸的乳液和面霜,这些化妆品中含有的乳酸成分是最高的。

    9.不勤换袜子

    没错,科学研究表明蚊子喜欢臭脚!昆虫学家丹尼尔。L.克兰曾做过这样的实验,用臭袜子做诱饵吸引蚊子,结果发现穿了三天的臭袜子对这些小虫有无法抵挡的吸引力。具体来说就是人脚上产生的细菌吸引了这些小虫。

    10.喝啤酒吃林堡干酪

    研究表明烧烤上喝了啤酒的人被蚊子叮的最厉害。如果在享受啤酒的同时又吃了些林堡干酪,那么你就等着被蚊子们群起而攻之吧!因为制作林堡干酪的物质和使你脚臭的物质是一样的!
