Are you always bitten by mosquitoes at night and your family/partner doesn’t? There could be several explanations for this. And I’ll list them!
- Blood type
Your blood type can determine, to a small extent, whether you’re more likely to be bitten by a mosquito. For example, blood group O and blood group AB are very popular with mosquitoes.
It turns out that dark clothes attract mosquitoes more than lighter clothes. Especially a lot of movement of dark clothing ensures that mosquitoes see this as a threat.
3. Carbon dioxide
Mosquitoes are attracted to carbon dioxide. This carbon dioxide is released when you exhale. Especially during exercise, such as sports, more carbon dioxide is released.
4. Sweat and bacteria
Mosquitoes are attracted to sweat by certain compounds. People who exercise more and therefore sweat more would then get bitten more often.
5. Body temperature
Mosquitoes are attracted to people with a higher body temperature. This is why pregnant women are more likely to be bitten by a mosquito. During pregnancy, the body temperature rises. In addition, women are generally more likely to be bitten than men.
