Based on your own experience, what kind of people are most likely to be bitten by mosquitoes? (Multiple answers)
Based on your own experience, what kind of people are most likely to be bitten by mosquitoes? In response to the question (multiple answers allowed), the most common answer was “People who sweat (64%).” Next were people with high body temperature (51%) and people who drank alcohol (32%). In fact, mosquitoes find blood suckers based on the amount of carbon dioxide, smell, and heat, so people who are sweating or have a high body temperature are actually more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes.
Where is the most unpleasant place to be bitten by a mosquito? Regarding the most unpleasant place to be bitten by a mosquito, the first place was the fingers of the hands (16.5%), and the second place was the toes (15.5%). If you get stung in a small area like your finger, it will be difficult to scratch, and the itching will be more intense than other parts of the body.
What do you do to prevent mosquitoes? (Multiple answers)
When asked what they do to repel mosquitoes, the number one answer was “insect repellent spray” (65.5%), and the second place was “mosquito coils” (25%). It seems that major measures are at the top of the list. Various types of insect repellent sprays are available on the market each summer, and it seems that many people actually find them to be effective.
What measures do you think are the most effective, and why and how do you use them?
1st place: Insect repellent spray
Because it is applied directly to the skin, it is less affected by wind and other factors. (Male in his 40s)

I thought it would be very effective to put it on the entrance. (Female from 50s)

Since it is sprayed directly, it won’t come close to you. (Female in her 40s)

Sprinkle insect repellent spray all over your body (woman in her 30s)

I think it’s most effective to keep them away from you, so I always spray my arms, legs, and neck when I go outside. (Female in her 30s)

* Some people sprayed it on their bodies when going out, and others used it at entry points for mosquitoes such as entrances. *

2nd place: Mosquito coil
You’re less likely to get bitten when you’re wearing mosquito coils. (Female in her 30s)

It definitely kills mosquitoes. Half the amount of mosquito coil is enough. (Female from 50s)

It has been used for a long time, is loved by people, and seems to be effective. (Female in her 40s)

Ever since I was little, I’ve been wearing mosquito repellent incense in the summer. I’ve used hanging types and herbal sprays, but mosquito coils are the best at keeping mosquitoes away. (Female from 50s)

Placing mosquito coils near the window will prevent mosquitoes from entering your home. (Male in his 30s)

* Mosquito coils are a summer tradition, aren’t they? It has been used for a long time, and many people seem to find it effective. *

3rd place: Long sleeve shirt and pants
Long-sleeved shirts and pants don’t cost much (women in their 20s)

I feel that wearing long sleeves and long pants greatly reduces the chance of being bitten by a mosquito. (Male in his 30s)

I think it’s less likely that you’ll get stung if you don’t expose your body. Even in the summer, I still wear socks as much as possible. (Female in her 40s)

I think it’s best to hide it with clothes. (Female in her 40s)

Wear long sleeves. The most effective way to protect yourself was to physically reduce the exposed area of ​​your skin and not expose it. (Female in her 40s)

* Physically hiding the skin that is bitten by mosquitoes may be the easiest and cheapest way to prevent mosquitoes. It also seems to be good for sun protection. *

4th place: Hanging type insect repellent
I started using it with some skepticism, but it turned out to be more effective than I expected (female in her 30s)

I think it would be a good idea to hang it on the balcony. (Female in her 30s)

If you use a hanging type on the front door, there will be no mosquitoes (female in her 30s)

* It is said that hanging a “hanging type insect repellent” at the entrance or balcony will prevent mosquitoes from entering. *

Because I can definitely kill you (male in his 30s)

You can get rid of it by spraying it (male from 50s)

Insecticides can be sprayed with force, making it easy to kill mosquitoes. (Male in his 40s)

6th place: Liquid mosquito repellent
Liquid mosquito repellents seem to be effective over a relatively wide area indoors. I think it is very safe as it has no odor and is not heated. It’s easy to see the amount of chemical solution left. (Female in her 30s)

I am using the liquid mosquito repellent repeatedly because I feel it is effective. Once you set it up, you won’t get bitten by mosquitoes. I try to use it when I feel like it’s there. (Female in her 40s)

I think a liquid mosquito repellent would be effective. If a mosquito comes near my ear while I’m sleeping at home, I use a mosquito repellent, but it disappears immediately after I put it on. (Female in her 30s)

7th place: Aroma herb spray
I feel like I’m less likely to get stung if I spray an aroma spray around my bed before going to bed. (Male in his 40s)

Convenient to use and feels like a fragrance. (Female in her 40s)

others
Use a fan to create airflow while sleeping to keep mosquitoes away from your body (man in his 30s)

Always keep the soles of your feet clean. (Female in her 30s)

In my personal opinion, wiping the soles of your feet with alcohol is highly effective at repelling mosquitoes. (Female in her 40s)

How to deal with a mosquito bite? (Multiple answers)
When asked what to do after being bitten by a mosquito, the first answer was “applying ointment (67%)” and the second place was “scratching (21.5%).” I feel like scratching it will make it even more itchy, so I want to apply medicine as soon as possible. The coping method of making marks such as X marks with your fingernails was ranked 3rd.
