All of our visits have either been in August, September or October. We have never been bothered by mosquitos in the daytime. However, we often eat outside around and after sunset. The mosquitos will bite exposed skin during that time. It's just a few - not a swarm - and a little deet seems to keep them at bay.

The other annoyance as far as bugs are the sand fleas, also known as noseeums - they tend to be on or close to the beach, come out at dusk, and tend to bite from the knees down. Again, some bug spray on the feet and legs keeps them away.

Where are you staying. They pray on the SMB corridor o it is really a non issue. I onto even think about Cayman hem. In other areas they can be relentless especially after heavy rain.

FWIW, the CI Mosquito Control and Research Unit works "to suppress mosquito populations so as to minimise discomfort from mosquito biting. To protect residents and visitors from mosquito-borne disease, and thereby enhance the quality of life and promote the economy of the Cayman Islands.”

Their activities are across the island (and not just SMB):
