2. Pregnant women

Mosquitoes generally have been shown to be attractive to pregnant Women than who aren't pregnant. May be this's because they release more Carbon-dioxie and have more body heat.

They are also attracted to heat as well as some compounds on our skin like (Uric acid), for instance , that's a product of protein breakdown can be very attractive to mosquitoes. In addition, some people have more steroids on their skin and sweat which can be very attractive to mosquitoes.
