If drinking beer on summer evenings and with friends is your pastime, know that you will be the target of mosquitoes more than others, and much more prone to bites! Because?

Summer evenings are a truly magical time to spend in the company of friends or family. We organize dinners outdoors accompanied perhaps by a tasty ice cold beer … Oops, better not! Drinking beer with the heat, in fact, will only make you even more subject to the bites of the annoying black insects: the mosquitoes will be able to perceive in the distance the smell emanating from those who drank the drink.

Well yes: it is really a pleasure to drink beer every evening, or almost, during the summer, but there is the other side of the coin to consider ! If the effects of beer on metabolism are not so negative (if you do not overdo it), you have to deal with mosquitoes ! Why? A study explains it …

Drinking beer and mosquitoes: what happens?

This was stated by a study published in the Journal of American medicin : ” Mosquitoes would be attracted to body odor modified by alcohol intake “.

That’s right, and an article published on MilanoToday confirms it . ” Drinking a can of beer significantly increases the attack by mosquitoes .”

Unfortunately, it is not the only factor that would influence the approach of the annoying black insect: the blood group also counts as they much prefer group 0 over that of B and A. Finally, by their nature, they have the ability to capture the carbon dioxide from our breath already 50 meters away .

Really difficult to escape from, right? So if now we have stung and the bites we have it is appropriate to resort to remedies against annoying itching !
