According to research, we can understand mosquito-borne diseases better if we closely examine our itchy bites.
Before a mosquito can become infected with a disease and pass it on to us, it must be transmitted to them, via their saliva.
When mosquitoes bite, they inject saliva in the bite to get the blood flowing. The reaction to this mixture of chemicals is different in different people. Sometimes it’s just a minor annoyance, other times the reaction is more serious.
As we get older we tend to develop a tolerance to bites, so the discomfort eases over time. This explains why young children and babies usually suffer the worst.
To protect your family at home,make sure your doors and windows are covered with insect screens. This will keep the home naturally cool and ventilated while keeping pesky mosquitoes out.
