Sweet tooth?: There are some factors which increase mosquito assaults, (carbon dioxide, lactic acid) blood glucose is not on the list. 1 in 10 people are mosquito magnets. Some people are not as sensitive to the bites, so even though they get just as many, they brag about not getting bitten. With all the things mosquitoes carry (zika, malaria) it's a good idea to use repellant.
