Mosquitoes get attracted to you from your breathing. It is the carbon dioxide that make them stick to you. Mosquitoes are also attracted by scents such us perfume, body odor, sweat or even body heat. This factor explains why some people seem to be mosquito magnet whereas others do not get a single bite. Those people who are safe from mosquito emit an odor that masks them from the insect.
