Are the mosquitos bad right now?

I haven't been paying real close attention to the weather there but it seems to have rained a fair share, we're heading down on Friday, just wondering how bad the mosquitos are right now. Thanks.

Gin applied to the bite not taken (but that can't hurt either) helps the itch so if you are at a bar and are getting bit ask for some gin on a napkin - and don't worry they are used to the request :)

Have to disagree, Pia darling! When nothing else is available, gin (the cheaper the better!) is an excellent repellant which at the same time leaves you stinking like a homeless Bowery resident but doesn't relieve the itching after the bite. However, liberal oral intake of frigid Sapphire with a mere whiff of dry vermouth and a couple of olives certainly makes one forget the itch. This information courtesy of a well-seasoned Old Tart with much history!!!!
