Here’s What Makes Someone A Mosquito Magnet

I went camping recently. I came back with some souvenirs. 31 of them to be exact.

Before you get all jealous, these are not fun little gifts, but souvenirs from mosquitos.

Yup, red, itchy, swollen and annoying mosquito bites.

Why, oh why? Do I have sweet blood?

Turns out it has nothing to do with having a sweet blood.

Here Are 6 Reasons You May Be A Mosquito Magnet

#1. You Are Athletic

Being physically fit comes with lactic acid. Unfortunately, mosquitoes love that.

#2. You Need A Shower

Mosquitoes love sweat and sweet smelling odor. Yup, it’s not your sweet blood, but your sweet sweat.

#3. You Are Pregnant

Pregnant women emit more CO2 than others. This is also something that attracts mosquitoes.

#4. You’ve Been Drinking

Drinking alcohol turns up your metabolism and CO2 output. Mosquitoes love this, especially if it’s beer.

#5. You Are Wearing Dark Or Bright Colors

Mosquitoes love and can be ridiculously attracted to bright and dark colored clothing.

#6. You Have An O Blood Type

Mosquitoes love type O blood more than anything else.

What Can You Do To Keep Mosquitoes Away?

  • Shower often
  • Wear thicker and lighter clothes
  • Use natural bug repellent
  • Eat onion, garlic and chili peppers
  • Avoid places with too many mosquitos

How To Treat Mosquito Bites Naturally?

  • Ice
  • Aloe vera
  • Honey
  • Apple cider vinegar diluted with water at a 1:4 ratio
  • Witch hazel
  • Baking soda mixed with water

These tips should help you avoid mosquito bites and treat them naturally if you ever come home and you’re itching all over.
