Mosquitoes are very sensitive to smell. They like the places such as sewers because of the stinky smell. They are also attracted to perfumes, scented soaps and hairspray.
“More people are more active during this part of the year,” Johnsen said. “They’re out and about where mosquitoes are, so their chances are higher for getting bit.”
This is beginning to concern students who exercise around campus and College Station.
“Now that I know that West Nile is around, I need to put on bug spray before I go off for a run since I go around the A&M golf course every day,” senior marketing major Elisa Durel said. “It’s scary because I run in the morning and that’s when the mosquitoes are out.”
