Skeeters gone now that its cooler?

Arriving Thursday. Just wondering (hoping) we can do without the bug spray now that the temps are dropping.

1. Re: Skeeters gone now that its cooler?

Temperatures here are trending a little cooler, so that helps a bit. And it's also continuing to dry out from the spring, and that helps a lot. I rode all day yesterday in the Teton Wilderness at about 7,500' elevation and saw no mosquitoes (but still lots of horse flies and deer flies) and used no spray (but did spray my horse). But we've not yet had our first good frost, so there are still bugs anywhere below about 10,000' elevation. So ... bring your bug spray in case you need it. If it's any consolation, our Wyoming mosquitoes don't leave much of a bite. They're rank amateurs compared to Florida mosquitoes, which I understand have occasionally carried off small children.

Hubby and I just got back today. We were camping in Madison last week and experienced almost no mosquitos in the campground (just one or two at sunset). We did a hike in the Bechler area - Cave Falls & Bechler Falls and the mosquitoes were killer on the trail. Other hikes we did around the Park, not too bad, but we wore natural citronella bug juice too.
