Why do mosquitos bite me so much?

True enough, some people do get more bites from mosquitoes than others. We exhale carbon dioxide, which attracts

mosquitoes. You'll probably get more mosquito bites if you breathe in more carbon dioxide,

particularly while you're sprinting, waving your hands, or leaping. Because their bodies are

experiencing heightened biological activity, pregnant women are also more likely to be bitten by mosquitoes. Additionally, some

data suggests that human body odor—both natural and artificial—can either draw mosquitoes

in or deter them. Mosquitoes typically find soaps with floral scents more appealing.
