Study says people who drink beer are more suspicious. In other words people who drink more beer are more attracted by mosquitos. While drinking beer your body sneaks our sweat from sweat glands and it results in bacteria.
Pregnancy can be reason for attracting mosquitos. And this is because there are two reasons behind this. One ladies exhale up to 21% more carbon dioxide. And the second reason is on average temperature of pregnant lady is 1.26 Fahrenheit comparing other.
- Clothing color:
What clothes you wear are also making way for mosquitos attracting towards you. If you wear Red, black, Blue or some dark colors. Then you are being attracted by mosquitoes.
- Exercise and metabolism:
Mosquitoes are attracted by people who sweat more. So people who exercise more or go to gym are attracted by mosquitoes more and more. Mosquitoes target the victim by smelling the substances like (Lactic acid, Uric acid, Ammonia etc) that is expelled through their sweat.
- Blood type:
Certain blood types are more appetizing for mosquitoes. For instance, people with Type O blood are more prone to mosquito bites than people with Type A blood group whereas those who have Type B blood group fall in the middle of this spectrum. Not only this, about 85 percent of people secret a chemical through their skin which indicates the blood type that they have. This makes things easier for mosquitoes as they prefer secretors over non-secretors, regardless of their blood type.
