Are mosquitos prevalent in Bohinj and Bled middle of May?

I know that they can be a problem at night near water but are there any particular problems to be aware of?

Mosquitoes can be a nuisance while out walking so remember to carry some insect repellent with you. Also use a mosquitoe machine in your room. I took all the usual precautions during my visit to Bled during late June last year and had no bites. However, saw mosquitoes on the lake during early evening / night.

Ticks (tiny blood sucking insects, like a tiny black pinhead on your skin) can be a problem if not removed faily quickly. Late spring and early summer and when you're most likely to find them, so check exposed skin at the end of the day. I walked around Bled & Bohinj, did not have any problems.

Hope this helps, enjoy your stay.

I didn't come across any mosquitos when I was in Bohinj last August. We didn't bother using any insect repellant, and we had no problems.
