A person’s genetic makeup might make them a mosquito magnet. Female mosquitos are the only ones that bite, and they need blood to fertilize their eggs. Genetics can make a difference in how attractive a person is to them. Carbon dioxide attracts mosquitoes, so the more a person gives off, the more likely they are to get bitten. Mosquitos can also sense and are drawn to steroids, cholesterol, and uric acid on the surface of the skin. This doesn’t mean that there are high amounts of these chemicals in the bloodstream, it just means that some bodies process them quickly, leaving excess on the skin. Pregnant women and active people are also more likely to be bitten. Watch this video to learn more about the genetic factors that attract mosquitos.
