Mosquitoes Need Sugar, Not Blood, To Survive

5 posts in this topic

It’s summertime, and with the season comes sun, fun and mosquitoes. Mosquitoes suck your blood, leave itchy welts, and can even transmit diseases making them an enemy to anyone who spends time outdoors.

Now, researchers at the U.S. Department of Agriculture are studying ways to trap and kill these pests by focusing on what mosquitoes are addicted to. Surprisingly it’s not blood, but sugar.

Pretty dangerous to a large part of the population I wager, with all the sugar added to foods plus the sugar-addicts. Out of all the shops I go, only one out of tenth or so doesn't have it's sweets shelf right next to the registers. Maybe this could give them some reason to change that in southern countries.

Ain't there still some sugar in your system and in the veggies too, though less? And I was under the impression that carbs produce sugar, might be very wrong though, thought it was a form of slow sugar.
