Some people get ravaged by mosquitoes if they so much as take a walk at dusk. Others can walk through clouds of the insects and not get a single bite.


It starts with the types of people who attract mosquitoes in the first place. Although mosquitoes can smell blood for miles, they mostly locate their prey by tracking the carbon dioxide that animals exhale. People who exhale more carbon dioxide - large people and pregnant women - are more obvious targets.

There is also evidence that mosquitoes prefer women because their skin is thinner, allowing for an easier bite.


If you have found yourself the sole person among a camping group bitten up, you're probably an O blood type
