Mosquitoes Can Detect Carbon Dioxide From 75 Feet Away

Carbon dioxide, which humans and other animals produce, is the key signal to mosquitoes that a potential blood meal is near.

Mosquitoes have developed a keen sensitivity to CO2 in the air. Once a female senses CO2 in the vicinity, she flies back and forth through the CO2 plume until she locates her victim.
