Mosquitos? You Might Be Their Type...Blood Type

Updated:

If you work out a lot, are pregnant, or had something to drink at that backyard BBQ, mosquitoes might find you more attractive than the person sitting next to you.
 
Experts say your blood type might also be the reason for the bites.
 
One study that found mosquitoes landed on people with type-O blood nearly twice as often as people with type-A. People with type-B reportedly fell somewhere in the middle.

It's reported that the reason mosquitoes find pregnant women and regular exercisers more attractive is because they have a higher body temperature   

And yes, just one bottle or can of beer can also make you more attractive -- though scientists haven't yet figured out why.

Ultimately, scientists say an estimated 85% of the reason why mosquitoes find some people more attractive than others can be blamed on your genes -- something you can do nothing about.
