Mosquitoes are small, flying insects all over the world, The female sting animals with hot blood to obtain protein that is used to make the eggs they lay. Like the blood suckers, they secrete saliva in the area of the bite that prevents the clotting and sealing of the wound. The mosquitoes reveal us as the “victim” of their stings, according to the smells that we secrete from our bodies. As everyone knows, there are the smells that characterize him and the same person. The smells change in the different periods of his life (for example, in women), and therefore we are very different from one another at the level of “appetite” that we develop in mosquitoes and are stung at different levels.

Mosquito bites are irritating and itchy, and may allow transmission of pathogens in Israel only in isolated incidents, such as infecting the western virus. (2).

Essential oil of geraniums and preservatives has also been found to be effective in mosquito repellents in other studies (5).
