Fun facts about mosquitoes that you have to know

Generally speaking, mosquitoes appear to be more attracted to people with blood type O than other blood types. Though they prefer direct access to blood, mosquitoes can bite through clothes if the fabric is thin and tight fitting. The pests' needle-like mouthparts pierce delicate cotton t-shirts with ease.

While these insects may die if you smack them when you feel a bite, there's no biological or anatomical reason they would die after feeding. In fact, these nuisance insects are capable of biting multiple times in a night. They'll keep going until they're full. So, you know that mosquitoes don't die after biting.
