Due to global warming in the world, there has been a rise in the increased rate of mosquitoes all over the world. Some apparent factors have led to all of this that are increased temperature, floods, and many other natural disasters. Areas affected by these natural calamities have sources of standing water here and there that take a lot of time to settle down and evaporate.

Also, mosquitoes have been flying around and buzzing in our eyes even more now. Stepping out of the house has become a problem due to the presence of these tiny insects everywhere. After the monsoon and the change that occurs in the temperature, mosquitoes come out of their habitats to make the lives of human beings difficult. 

Man is the attraction                 

  • Mosquitoes are attracted by things that have a strong smell, like soaps, skin odor, and perfumes. The circumstances vary from person to person. They are also attracted to darker clothing like black and dark blue. 

  • Those with a warmer body temperature always seem to complain about mosquitoes making life hell for them. They not only suck the blood out of the body, but they make sure that they leave the person scratching their arm for the rest of the day. 

  • Mosquitoes carry lots of diseases with them that can be deadly as well, which is why after the monsoon season, necessary measures are taken to ensure that the widespread of mosquitoes is stopped. 

Protection from mosquitoes:       

People have started to become more aware of the adverse effects of these mosquito bites, which is why when the monsoon season comes, people start covering themselves up with mosquito repellent that protects them throughout the day. Some people hire professional mosquito repellent services to help them get rid of these unwanted guests.
