5 Reasons Why Mosquitos Love You

1.  You produce more carbon dioxide.  Pregnant women produce more of it when they breathe, so do people who are overweight.  

2.  You run hot.  A study two years ago found they're attracted to people with higher body temperatures.  Which could be caused by a fever, or just being out in the sun.

3.  You have type-O blood.  A study in 2004 found it attracts more mosquitos than other blood types.  Some of us also secrete a chemical that TELLS mosquitos what our blood type is.  

4.  You have a certain microbial make-up that mosquitos love.  Meaning the bacteria on your skin.  Everyone's is different, and mosquitos like some more than others.

5.  You're a big drinker.  A study in 2002 found mosquitos were much more attracted to people after they drank beer.  Even just one beer was enough to do it.
