Why is it that sometimes mosquitoes are attracted to one person and not others?
We have a little mosquito issue at home, and it’s been going on for about a week now. The weird thing is the mosquitoes are ONLY biting my mom. My dad and I have been completely unaware until my mom started complaining that they were biting her. But they haven’t been biting us. She has mosquito bites all over her legs.
Come to think of it, whenever we’re around mosquitoes in the woods or whatever, they generally go after my mom and not my dad and I.
How could this be? Could she have something in her bloodstream that she has more of that they like?
