You may have noticed that mosquitoes often seem to hover around a person's head. This generally happens if the person has dark hair. To combat this, you could consider wearing a cotton cap in a light shade on your head.Mosquitoes are attracted to the colour black, so if you are going to be outdoors and expect to be exposed to mosquitoes, opt for a lighter colour.

It appears that wearing light colours is better if you want to avoid being bitten. But saying that mosquitoes will also be attracted by other things not just colour

Is that a reason why mosquitoes are active at night?
