Bigger people are bitten more often by Mosquito than children

Before you start going, no it is not because they have more to offer to the hungry mosquito. Mosquitoes locate their next meal thanks to an organ called maxillary palp located in their breath and the carbon dioxide people emit in the air. A mosquito can locate you from a distance as far as 164 feet away. Adults and bigger individuals tend to exhale more carbon dioxide gas over time. As a result study shows that these people are more likely to be bitten. This is also one of the reasons why children on average complain less about mosquito bites than adults.
