Wouldn't you then need to compare the tolerance to B1 and the
electrolytes of the subjects? I eat the same as the rest of
my family does but my drug tolerance is very different. As
I said when I jumped in, fleas don't seem to bother me but
they do bite the rest of my family.

I'd think you'd want to check skin secretions.

Seeing that my little nature-peek showed mosquitoes trying to
bite plants and inanimate objects, it seems they are controlled
more by what repels them than what attracts them. Around these
parts, people grow citronella(sp?) plants and make candles
out of them, which seem to successfully repel all kinds of
critters. I've never even SEEN a 4-legged grasshopper.
