1. Blood Type
A study showed that mosquitoes found people with Type O blood to be the most attractive to mosquitoes as published in The Journal of Medical Entomology.

A study from the Public Library of Science showed that mosquitoes are attracted to natural skin bacteria. The more bacteria, the bigger the treat.
