Scientists from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine have discovered that there might be a genetic reason for your attractiveness to the little bloodsuckers.
In a study published in medical journal PLOS ONE, Aedes aegypti mosquitoes were released into a tube with two sections leading to a set of twins.
The bugs were equally attracted to identical twins, while fraternal twins (who have differences in their genes) displayed varying levels of attractiveness.
Scientists say this suggests a genetic component to the “mosquito law of attraction”.
Earlier studies have shown that blood type and body odour are other factors in this attractiveness.
