Summer is the perfect time of year — even as an adult, you can’t help but feel a certain excitement as the season changes. BBQs, summer vacation, camping trips: endless possibilities!

Why do mosquitoes bite me more?
There are many factors that can attract mosquitoes to you more often than friends or even close family members. Many of these factors are genetic and can’t be changed, but some can be regulated by clothing choices and alcohol consumption.
