Posted on 6/21/2010 at 2:07PM by Cindy Mannes, Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer, Arrow Exterminators
According to a recent article in the New York Times, mosquitoes find some people tastier than others. While many think they are more attracted to the sweeter sex due to women's higher estrogen levels, the fact is that gender does play a role but not in the way most people think. As one report in the Annals of Internal Medicine points out, men are more likely to be attacked, primarily because of their body size.
