I learned that yellow lights attract mosquito's less than blue lights.

Heidi Bee said...

Mosquitos can breed in just a tiny amount of water!

andrea v said...

I didn't know about the yellow light. I thought the blue worked better.

Shakeia Rieux said...

I learned that male mosquitoes feed on plant nectars, but female mosquitoes also bite in order to extract protein from blood to use in egg production.

I learned that i need to use a yellow light to help deter them.

Janet Coffield said...

I missed two of the quiz questions. I should have known that perfumes attract mosquitoes.

Catherine said...

Good thing I don't wear perfume. I'm a mosquito magnet even without it!

Stephanie MacDonald said...

I am allergic to their bites! It's disturbing they can thrive in any amount of water, so be sure to check the property for any standing water!
