Black Flies End of April

Hi - can I ask one more question before we book our trip??

I have done a few searches, but can I just ask, will the dreaded black flies be out around 22-29th April.

Thank you once again.

One of my favorite things about Maine in April is no bugs. They get very pesky in May/June. I have a theory that they especially enjoy biting people "from away," because they sucked out all of our blood when we were younger!

I agree---at least here on MDI, April is a bit early for black fly season.

Black flies are out from Mother's Day to Father's Day, usually. The weather rules all. Last year wasn't bad at all in Southern Maine. Hopefully you won't have any snow! : )
