The Reason Why Melbourne’s Mosquitoes Are Attracted To You

People all across Melbourne have been complaining of an influx of mosquitos over the last 24 hours, with many calling it a 'Mosquito Invasion.' 

The pesky insects are reportedly swarming over the whole city.

According to experts, because Victoria has had the second wettest September on record since 1916 - the wet weather has created the perfect conditions for mosquitoes to breed in. 

If you are being attacked by mosquitoes, then there are reason behind it.

Research shows that mosquitoes are attracted to ‘large dark objects that emit large amounts of CO2.’

Now, what that means is that adults are a target, which is pretty much all of us.

However, there are other factors.

Males are more likely to be targeting as they emit more heat than women but girls, you are not safe.

If you are pregnant, you also create heaps more CO2 because, well, you are carrying two people.

Also, didn’t shower this morning? They love an unclean human, so you are pretty much a biting party for that reason.

So, keep clean, don’t get pregnant or be an adult, is pretty much the reason.

We are all screwed. HAPPY SPRING/SUMMER.
