 Beer Makes Humans More Attractive to Mosquitos
Dr. Phil Koehler with the University of Florida says your metabolism and your unique body chemistry play important roles in determining whether or not mosquitos are more attracted to you.
Koehler says, "Also, there's evidence that your degree of attractiveness to mosquitos can change over time." Koehler says that previous research has shown mosquitos prefer blood type O, are 500-times more active during a full moon, are highly attracted to the smell of dirty feet, and often bite people who just drank a beer or are pregnant more often than a sober or not pregnant person.
