Health experts say certain personal attributes could make you a mosquito magnet

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.

Other things that attract mosquitoes are pregnant women, people with type O blood and wearing darker colors.

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.
