Mosquitoes are not color blind, actually they have tremendous visual acuity. Mosquitoes love color and the darker the better. The research is not definitive on whether it's an instinctive reaction to darker colors as a camouflage device or a natural feeding mechanism ingrained in the insect.
Over these past 11 years I can tell by experience that if you have dark walls on the exterior of your home you will find more mosquitoes present there. If you have a dark front door, unified more mosquitoes around and you will light colored door. If you have any type of foliage in your yard trees and shrubs for example, unified a greater concentration of mosquitoes in those dark
shaded areas. In the process of harboring,(that is mosquitoes hanging out) you tend to find more mosquitoes hiding in darker locations. The rule of thumb is cooler, darker, and more damp attracts mosquitoes.
As for feeding mosquitoes, they will tend to attack legs that are covered in dark pantyhose, dark pants or shorts, dark shirts and socks. Conversely, mosquitoes seldom attack of folks in white button-down's and khaki pants. It sounds crazy but all the research points in that direction. As for clothing, I can only speculate in daytime mosquito attacks, darker clothes can increase the body temperature causing more perspiration and odors the may attract the mosquitoes. Because mosquitoes are visual hunters, and actually are able to depict your thermal image the darker clothing may increase skin temperatures and have a tendency to attract more mosquitoes to feed.
