Question from Patty in Spain:
Can mosquitoes bite you through your clothes?
The mosquitoes will only bite through thin, tight-fitting clothes. But considering that Aedes aegypti, the Dengue mosquito, for instance prefers to bite as low to the floor as possible, your main concern really is that you not wear ‘dress’ socks during the day if you happen to be in a mosquito infested environment. Then again, that is if you are going to be sitting still in shaded areas near dwellings – not say going shopping, for a walk, sea bathing or things like that.
