HOUSTON (KIAH) It’s mosquito season and everything is bigger in Texas, including mosquitoes (at least it sure feels like it). Houston tops the most extreme mosquito activity for peak season in July.
Two mosquito samples testing positive for West Nile in the Woodlands just a couple of weeks ago. So, it’s been an active season.
So here are a few reasons mosquitoes may be MORE attracted to you…
Blood Type that attracts mosquitos the most
If you have Type O blood, you’re most likely to be a target. They prefer that more than any other blood type. If you have Type A, you’re next. Type B blood comes in third, according to healthline research.
Body attractions for mosquitos
What else could be attracting mosquitos? Sweat and body odor, so if you’re hiking and working out in the elements, look out! You’re also building up another attractor for the pests – lactic acid.
Pregnancy attracts mosquitos
Booze attracts mosquitos
Having alcohol in your bloodstream also makes you tastier to mosquitos.
