I thought it had to do with blood type, but googled it and sure enough it seems that type O people are more likely to be bitten. I'm B- and my DD is B+ and neither of us attracts mosquitoes, seldom get bitten. We can be in flea infested houses and if there is any other warm blooded critter around, we will only know there are fleas if we see them or see the bites on others. We're a last resort. When she moved out and took her cats I found out there were fleas in the apartment. I put out Borax and never saw a flea again.
