We leave on Thursday for our trip where we're spending four days in the jungle at Sandoval Lodge -- just how bad are the mosquitos in June/July at that particular area?
I bought DEET products and I'm wondering if I should treat our clothes (if the bugs are bad (ticks, chiggers, etc.) when hiking on the trails --
Would we be Ok to just use the 40 percent DEET products and just wipe our face and other exposed areas while wearing long sleeves and pants? Or should I treat all the clothes and assume we'll get bitten even while wearing clothes that cover us?
I've read to use 100 percent DEET which is very powerful - I have kids and don't want to use it on them unless the bugs are really annoying.
Any advice on the bugs would be great -- we've been to Alaska and I'm originally from MI so I know mosquitos --
