It’s not all mosquitoes that feed on blood, though: Male mosquitoes drink only nectar, whereas female mosquitoes nourish their developing eggs with protein-rich blood. To the end, the female mosquitoes prefer to bite ankles and wrists, where blood vessels are nearer to the skin’s surface. Ever noticed where you get bitten?
When a mosquito bites you, it injects a small amount of saliva into the wound to stop your blood from clotting. Our bodies react to this foreign substance and, in defense, produce a protein called histamine. Histamine triggers the characteristic inflammation seen around mosquito bites, as well as the itching. Mosquito saliva can carry encephalitis, malaria, West Nile virus, and yellow fever. If you have any complications with bug bites (besides itching), check for symptoms of these other diseases.
Natural Bug Repellent Remedies------
Did you know: A higher body temperature and more sweat make you more likely to be bitten. A first step is to wash off any sweat and keep your body temperature down. Topical Mosquito Repellents------
Many claim that rubbing apple cider vinegar on your skin helps repel insects. If you take in enough apple cider vinegar by putting it on foods you eat, you’ll develop a body odor that will repel insects, including black flies. One great and refreshing summer drink for this purpose is switchel, made from apple cider vinegar. (Recipe online or Buy at Whole Foods and Amazon) Lemon eucalyptus oil is recommended by the CDC to repel mosquitoes, as is picaridin.
Some people swear that garlic works and swallow slivered garlic to ward off these summer pests. Others take garlic tablets or rub garlic juice directly on their skin.
If you are going to use DEET repellent, do not use one with more than 25% DEET. Unlike the SPF rating on sunscreens, higher concentrations of DEET don’t mean more protection.
