I have read this on Philippine Daily Inquirer about the perfume that attracts dengue and malaria transmitting mosquitoes. That is according to a medical scientist who studies the behavior and biological life of insects. It can attract those who sprays too much perfume and sweats profusely. Imagine your perfume will attract mosquitoes so what if you didn't use it? Can you imagine your smell or it also attracts mosquitoes as well?

Is cologne also considered under those attracting mosquitoes? I usually use one because I sweat a lot every time I go to school. And I haven't felt mosquito bites yet but just to be sure, is cologne also attracting to them?

The spray like OFF or even the lotion of it can be a big help.

Are the mosquitoes brand-conscious?
