5 mg OR HIGHER DOSE OF VITAMIN B1 EACH DAY WILL REPEL MOSQUITOES. TAKE A B - COMPLEX MULTIVITAMIN EACH DAY WITH AT LEAST 5mg B1(THIAMINE) . YOU WILL PRODUCE A SCENT THAT IS REPULSIVE TO MOSQUITOES!!! NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT SHIRT COLOR OR CITRONELLA CANDLES!!!

@Dave Jan VITAMIN B1 (THIAMIN) is the key. If you take a multivitamin with B1 , you will produce a scent that is repulsive to mosquitoes and undetectable to humans. I'm "O" type blood and mosquitoes used to bite me frequently. Since I've started the B1 , nothing!

Always remember: if you push mosquitos away, you will have nothing. You'll be all alone. And sad. Don't do that to yourself!

Beer emits CO2 and it's the alcohol they used for the study. Did they even consider that the CO2 from the beer might be the cause?

Any research on the body's electro magnetism? Since fruit flies can sense magnetism, maybe mosquitoes can too?

@ 13:30 (ish) Saving millions of people is a terrible idea. Overpopulation is the root of every other global problem. Saving people is like giving a death sentence to All Life, though the exact date of that sentence isn't clear.

11:20 (ish) There's no way that we (or any other organism) has been drinking alcohol long enough for mosquitoes to incorporate this behavior into their evolution. Now, if entire populations of the little vampires were completely dependent upon humans as their sole food source, for 10's of thousands of years, okay... then maybe.

No test on blood sugar? Check diabetics vs. Non-diabetics. Would love to see those results!

This is interesting because as a kid, I was always getting bitten. Everywhere at anytime. But now that I am an adult I rarely get bitten if ever.

Maybe the mosquitoes are attracted to a rise of blood sugar because of the alcohol

People are cooler after drinking because it brings the heat up to the surface of the skin, allowing for the air to cool you faster (scishow, survival myths episode), so would it not be more attractive to the mosquitoes since the heat is brought to the surface?

Live where it's cold and you only have to worry about mosquitoes one season per year as opposed to all year long

Maybe give them a non calorie sweetener instead of sugar? They get into egg production and run out of calories then die. Just have to find the right sweet thing they will buy into I guess.

As for the beer being a mosquito attractant, for years I have used yeast to attract gnats to a common area so I can spray them all at once in a safe area of my choosing to spray bug spray in the home. Maybe it's the yeast that attracts the mosquitoes to beer drinkers. It sure does attract gnats.

I can stand next to a mosquito magnet person and I won't be bitten even once. And onions don't make me cry, at all, ever. My dad is the same in both instances. I remember watching mosquitoes fill w/my blood as a child but am past 50yrs old and noticed 20yrs ago that I no longer get bitten. Don't think it's linked to the onion thing. Just another thing that makes me unusual. Any hypothesis anyone?

Offer mosquitoes a different snack, you say? Just tell your friends to do the opposite of everything Hank said and, voila, you're no longer the popular one... to mosquitoes or humans

Mosquitoes being attracted to dark colored surfaces is also a surviving skill. Every time I try to pursue and kill a mosquito in my room that has white colored walls, they fly towards the door witch is dark colored brown, so it is almost impossible to see them. The mosquitoes that do so escape and survive.

why did I not hear any theory about the possible connection between bug repellent and what makes them come to you. like how venom something used to kill or incapacitate has been reversed to do the opposite. why not look into bug repellent and see how it keeps them from finding us possibly showing us how they find to begin with

The carbonation in beer is produced by CO2 so my guess is that is the attractant

So what do you do for a living? I place bowls of sweat in a wind tunnel and then watch to see if mosquitoes will fly toward them. Somebody pays me to do this.
