Teasers choose a person with a strong body odor. Most often, adult males become victims of hematopoiesis due to the intensity of their metabolism.
Dr. Nina Tikunova, head of ICBFM SB RAS Molecular Microbiology Laboratory, said that parasites do land on one person more often than another. However, this is just an observation that is not supported by scientific evidence.
At the same time, the specialist clarified that the smell of alcoholic beverages does not affect the “attractiveness” of a person for bloodsuckers. Teasers react only to certain molecules, so the presence of other substances in the human body does not stimulate or repel them.
According to the expert, the lice do not jump from the trees on the people, but wait for the objects to bite the tall grass stems. These parasites, which can contain several deadly pathogens, have eight legs.
“Four of them are caught by the blade of grass, and the other four are put in front to cling to the passing object. “Then the tick crawls up and looks for the most tender places on the body on which it bites,” Tikunova explained.
Earlier, Sib.fm wrote about five folk remedies that scare bloodsuckers. He mentioned 3 districts of Novosibirsk, where the most aggressive lice are, as the doctors enumerated the terrible consequences of the lice bite.
