Last Updated: 117 days ago
Are you always the one who gets bitten by mosquitoes during outdoor activities while others remain untouched? You might be a mosquito magnet.
Experts name a few traits you may have that attract mosquitoes right to you.
The number one factor is drinking beer, KJRH-TV reported.
According to a study, consuming alcohol -- specifically beer -- raises your body heat, which causes you to sweat, just like exercising.
Experts recommended wearing a good brand of bug repellant and wearing long, light and loose clothing while outside.
They also recommend simply bringing your gathering indoors to avoid the bugs altogether.
