Beer drinkers beware; mosquitoes more likely to latch onto you

(PIX11)- A cold beer on a hot night like this could get you bitten up by mosquitoes.

A study shows the pesky bloodsuckers love beer drinkers, even if you have just one.

Researchers think it’s because beer contains ethanol, which will of come out of your pores.

And beer also raises body heat, which mosquitoes like.

So they are also attracted to you when you’re exercising.

Mosquitoes also prefer pregnant women and people with type ‘O’ blood.
