it shouldn't be too necessary... I mean, if you're in someone's backyard or camping, bring it. If you spray down, you'll be fine. If you're in a hotel, and just going to the rally, don't sweat it.

They won't be to bad at the end of July, the heat will have killed them by that time. LOL

If camping you might want a little deet for the nights.

If you are anywhere near trees and bushes they will come out at dusk and suck your bone marrow. If you are near water the Asian tiger mosquitoes will attack you 24/7. -Bring Deet and use it depending on conditions. If you get into grassy areas it will repel the ticks and chiggers. There is nothing worse than walking thru a grassy spot and picking up a few hundred chiggers.

The area that the meet is held will probably have deer moving thru at night.

Well, if you do bring some, they have their own airport here and it's open 24/7.

Come to the Jersey Shore (south jersey) and makeup your own mind. I saw three of them carrying away a cat this morning.

Don't eat Bananas in the summer time.

The oil secretes through the pores of the skin attracting the skeeter's so much you may as well have advertised it.

Pears aren't as bad.


Up here in Alberta we get skeeter's so big they put saddles on them and have their own rodeo's.

In Minnesota you have to chain your kids down if they weigh less than 80 pounds or the skeeters will carry them off. Here in KC they are smaller and generally only carry off infants and toddlers.

Around KC the skeeters are everywhere. Once they home in on your breath they will be after you. Just stay upwind of other people.

Been my experience that the tiny little ones you can't even see leave the biggest nasties welts. Big yellow circles the size of an old time silver dollar. Must be because they're fresh from the swamp water.

But we have horse flies down here in Memphis that will drill through kevlar if they have to to get at ya!

You feel THEM the instant they bite, and then you feel it even MORE so. They're about three quarter of an inch long, and I think the medical profession designed their square hypodermic needles after them. You know - the big corkscrew ones...

They say in Texas they have skeeters big enough to stand flat footed and make love to a turkey buzzard...

A bottle of bug spray is small and light. It doesn't take much to pack it away, in fact I keep 1 in in the car at all times. I would bring it just in case. If you bring it and don't use it, O well. But if you don't bring it and need it, you'll be kicking yourself (and hitting yourself for the bugs) and you'll wish you had it.
