Why do bugs like you more?

Are you often the tasty treat for mosquitos? Do you seem to attract blood suckers more than others?

It is not all in your head.

Blood type, metabolism, exercise, shirt color and even drinking beer can make individuals especially delicious to mosquitoes.

If you are Type O blood type you will get bitten twice as often as people with other blood types.
Mosquitos love people who are sweating. When you are sweating you are secreting Lactic Acid. This triggers the mosquitos to attack.
If you drink just one 12 oz. beer you will more than likely to be bitten more. Why? Because it increases your body temperature making you sweat.
Mosquitoes use vision (along with scent) to locate humans, so wearing colors that stand out (black, dark blue or red) may make you easier to find,
If you are deeply concerned at this point do not worry. Mountaineer Brand is here to help:
