According to a Japanese study mosquitoes are most attracted to type O blood. Mosquitoes can taste, via skin secretions, what blood type we are before they suck any blood.

Finnish police once found a dead mosquito while searching a stolen car. They tested the blood from the mosquito’s last meal and used it to identify the thief.

Catnip is 10 times more effective at repelling mosquitoes than DEET, the compound used in most insect repellents. source
