Every summer it seems like there’s that one person who always gets a lot of mosquito bites. But what makes people mosquito magnets?

A beehive fell on my grandmother's head while chopping wood when she was a teenager. After her recovery she is immune to bites from most household and field (tropical) insects. They either never bite or die instantly if they bite. Never understood what changed.

I remember reading somewhere that there is a laboratory in the jungle of Brazil that genetically modifies mosquitoes to disrupt their reproduction. When released into the wild, the mosquitoes numbers were reduced by about 93 percent.

So...breathing heavier, sweating easily, being more susceptible to B.O, being more susceptible to pathogens/infections, avoiding wearing less-flattering (light) colors, drinking alcohol, having sugar in my blood stream... This video was low key fitspo. Like all of these makes me want to consume less and lose a few extra pounds to be safe for summer 😂

Can you explain why I don't ever get bit? I've quite literally had less than 5 mosquito bites my entire life and it's not because of where I live - they are everywhere here.

I haven't gotten a bite since the start of this year's season. I think it's because my laundry detergent, and therefore my clothes, smell like bug spray.

If sugar attracts mosquitoes, could drinking a beer that raises blood sugar be the reason drinking a beer also attracts them?

What about feeding mosquitos with sugary water or coca cola added odorless pesticide in a black bowl... Maybe cover this with bug net so that only mosquitos can enter the meal, and not the cute butterflies and bees.

So bug repellant is still our best bet. My favorite is Avon Skin - So - Soft Bug Guard, a very powerful repellant that actually smells good, unlike DEET or picaradin. Natural bug repellants can be used, too, and are effective, but the smell is borderline to me. I prefer Avon.

Maybe... I'm just hypothesizing here... there beer in your system, alter chemicals in your body to indicate to the mosquitoes, a person less sensitive to the bite. If the host is unaware of the mosquitoe presence, chances are, it will not be killed.

I have noticed when my dog gets a few fleas the fleas are hiding in the darker colored hair. When you see a mouse in your house it runs to a darker place trying it hid from you. Or a creepy roach out side my house sees me it too will run for cover towards the dark places to hid from me. They never run out into the lighted area of a room or outside to a well lit area where I can see it better and kill it. So I think it's an instinctive defense action to pro6 its self from danger. If they didn't run to a dark place the birds and other bug eaters would soon pick off the bug population. So when a mosquito lands on a dark surface its try to protect itself and get a meal too. It's an instinctive action that was instilled from the very beginning. Hide or become a meal for some other species. Our species usually commit crimes under the cover of night. It's to try and get away with a crime. Its instinct.

The mosquito clearly wanted to drink beer. My dr always told me I had sweet blood... because I drink too much. Why do you have a jerry curl?

WTF! If they can genetically modify mosquitos Gr 3 or whatever, why can't they GMO them to be sterile. Or some other such scientific wizardry. Without poisoning everyone or the environment 🤔🤔. I'm a mosquito magnet, white clothes, dark clothes, no clothes. Even sprayed with repellents. It seems they prefer to risk death than to try someone with no repellents. My only defence is a strong fan🙈🙈

I am a mosquito MAGNET. They pick me out of a crowd. But when I went keto, they didn’t touch me. Not even one bite all summer long and on one occasion I was in a wet wooded area with them buzzing all around. Not a bite that night either. It is incredible. First noticed it during fasting.

Hello to other fellow mosquito magnet people! I learned this from deer hunters in Oregon. Once a day, take a 250mg. B-1 vitamin. It stopped me from getting mosquito bites, almost completely! Just a common vitamin B-1 tablet!! I was the one, in a room filled with people that would get bitten too! Try it! it's cheap, and effective.

In citing the alcohol studies you only mentioned beer, but you (or the studies) overlooked the possibility of the previously noted appeal of carbonation being expelled by normal exhalation (enhanced by loud talking and yelling common during outdoor drinking bouts), belches and farts.

#5 beer is carbonated, beer drinker belch -releasing co2, and in general alcohol increases base metabolic rate thereby causing the imbiber to emit more co2 and perhaps more lactic acid as well. so, 1+2=5.
