  • Interesting story. I am a beekeeper and it took a few years to become “immune” to bee stings. I get stung at least once a week, usually much more often.

  • My normal body temp is a couple of degrees cooler than the average normal. Maybe that is why I don’t get bitten. And if I did, I would know, I have extreme histamine reactions.

  • No one will ever see this comment, but I have discovered I am suddenly immune to inflammation/irritation caused by mosquito bites. The only two events that I suspect could be related is living with dogs I was allergic to (was taking Allegra/Benadryl regularly, weaned off over time), and the other event being repeat exposure to poison ivy/sumac/et al.
    I on multiple occasions allow mosquitos to bite me to verify, and my fiance is covered in welts daily, and I haven’t had one.

  • Try the bite helper or some similar product from Amazon. It gets pretty warm and hurts a bit but afterwards the bite doesn’t itch at all.

  • Head up to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area in Minnesota at the end of June without bug spray. Worked for me 10 years ago have not had a reaction since.

  • Or what I discovered from my own experience, since I started taking antihistamines for hay fever mosquito bites started feeling almost unnoticeable.

  • I knew this but didn’t know it. I grew up in North Port, Florida, and as a kid (ages 6 to 12) I was outside year round playing in the woods and being a kid. My legs would always…and I mean always….be covered in mosquito bites. One year it was so bad I remember not being able to get into my neighbor’s pool because the (what seemed like hundreds of) bites on my legs stung so badly. Fast forward to now, I’m 29 (but the bites stopped when I was a teenager), and I can sit outside at night in the Florida summer and my skin looks like it NEVER got touched by a single Mosquito. Everyone I know is jealous and nobody likes to sit outside at night with me.

    Thanks for this video! It confirmed my suspicions about my body building an immunity to them!

  • Interesting! When I first moved to South Korea from the US 16 years ago, I got horrible quartersized welts from the mosquito bites. My reactions gradually got milder, and in the past few years either I miraculously got no bites or I become totally desensitized.

  • Funny that males are more likely to be bitten than females? It’s always women I hear complaining about it. Maybe women just complain more and men tough it out.

  • Learned this from a (Danish?) guy who is out in the Siberian forests basically homesteading. He lives near an old Gulag. Has a Russian wife and kids. When summer comes to Siberia it’s a swampy affair. Tons of mosquitoes. Well apparently he is a user of basically a type of Russian sauna. It’s a stand-alone steam room used for bathing. And he just pops out into the outside mostly naked for 20 minutes or whatever and gets a hundred bites that way. Apparently you get immune really quick that way. The guys name is Lars I.believe. The channel is Survival Russia.

  • I’m from Saudi Arabia and has not been exposed to any mosquitoes, then I went to the Philippines where I am currently living in, my first night there was HORRIBLE. I literally woke up to the numbing of my arm because a hundred mosquitoes bit it. A year later, less and less mosquitoes have been biting me, so I can say that this is a bit accurate. I was just fortunate that a dengue mosquito have not bitten me in the last year.

  • Regarding the man in the expirement, how did he/they know what species of mosquitos had or hadn’t bitten him? It said that he was bitten by a species which had never bitten him. How do they know this?
    The quickest way to get rid of the itch/irritation of a mosquito bite is to put ice on it for a few minutes.

  • Lol I bout lost it when the commenator started to rant bout how human interactions can sometimes go the way of the mosquito romantic umm…dance����

  • I do know. that when I start getting bit, most people are getting eaten alive. Side note. I grew up in SE Arkansas. and spent more than 3 years in Panama.

  • I am mostly immune to Mosquito bites and Fire Ant stings. Having grown up in Texas Fire Ants stings were pretty common, having lived in the Swamps plenty of mosquitoes. That said certain areas [[between my fingers near the top of the crook and my back]] still react. Deer Flies-no becoming immune to them however.
