7 Reasons Why You Get Bitten By Mosquitoes More Than Everyone Else

For all those who have been personally victimised by mosquitos.

Hands up if you've ever been personally victimised by gnats and mosquitos.

Have you ever wondered what it is that makes your blood so damn delicious for the little pesky flying bastards?

1. Turns out there are a bunch of reasons! How much carbon dioxide you exude makes a difference to how appetising you are to the buggers.

2. A higher body temperature could also mean you are more likely to be bitten.

3. Your blood type is also a factor in how likely you are to be bitten.

4. The same study also showed that only some people secrete chemicals through their skin that indicate what blood type they have.

5. The composition of the microbes on your skin is another factor.

6. Exercising also makes you more appealing.

7. Lastly, drinking beer may also contribute to your status as mosquito bait.

So, if you don't want to be bitten, avoid drinking beer, going to the gym, and getting pregnant. Also, be sure to change your genetic background!
