In summer evenings, there are always family members who become victims of mosquitoes, while others seem to not attract these insects in any way. Now scientists claim they have found the explanation.
According to a new study - taken by the Daily Mail - the body of certain people emits odors that act in the same way as anti-mosquito substances.
The authors of the study - members of the Rothamsted Institute in Hertfordshire and the University of Aberdeen - said they had identified those chemicals emitted by the body, which forced mosquitoes to stay away, and now hopes that their discovery will lead to the development of aiding methods. of those who regularly become victims of annoying insects.


British researchers have found that mosquitoes are attracted to the warmth of the body and the smells they find pleasing. However, there are people who produce chemicals that help mask these smells, so they stop attracting mosquitoes.
