If anyone has tried this trick I’d love to know if it worked for you. Seems like such an inexpensive way to get those critters to stop biting me so I can enjoy my porch. Who knows what those critters are injecting you with when they insert their mosquito proboscis under your skin and into your capillaries.
“In many species, the female needs to obtain nutrients from a blood meal before she can produce eggs, whereas in many other species, she can produce more eggs after a blood meal. The feeding preferences of mosquitoes include those with type O blood, heavy breathers, those with a lot of skin bacteria, people with a lot of body heat, and the pregnant.”
See, now you are freaked out by those bastards as well.
