Some people are tastier than others; to mosquitoes that is! There are many factors that determine how yummy you are to mosquitoes like your blood type, metabolic rate, genetic makeup and bodily chemicals. Not only can this make you more likely to develop those itchy red spots we all just love, but it also makes you more vulnerable to illnesses that develop from mosquito-borne viruses like chikungunya, Dengue fever and West Nile virus.
Protect yourself by wearing light colored clothing, long sleeves and pants, applying insect repellant containing DEET to exposed skin and clearing any stagnant water from your yard or home where mosquitoes can breed.
