  • Some people's "scent attracts them more. Could also be your perfume or lotion or hair products. Avon's skin so soft products keep the little buggers away like magic though.

  • Um, if you smoke cigarettes, mosquitos can gett an addiction and actively seek out smokers over non smokers. and yes some peoples scent just smells yummier to the little buggers.

  • Yes, I swear I am too. We must be sweeter than the rest. Avon sells a product called skin so repels bugs like nothing that I have ever seen and it doesn't have all of the chemicals. I just read that it is also a great crayon remover off of walls. check it out!

  • There is a chemical in our bodies that mosquitos are attracted to. I can't remeber the name of it without looking it up. Some people produce more than others. They love my husband but really don't bother me.
