You don't. I first came across them when visiting the Highlands of Scotland. Camped on the shores of Loch Ness (no, before you ask, we didn't see any sign of Nessie).


They thrive in moist warm areas. Me and OH were also bitten when visiting Tombstone in Arizona. We found out that the motel owners had put us in a lovely room, but very close to their air-conditioning place, which uses water, which attracts mossies (that's what the Scots call them, we in England, don't suffer from them). I couldn't believe it when mossies shown up in Arizona though, it being desert. You will probably have to use mosquito repellent. May be someone on the site can help you?

I use Natrapel repellent, either the towelettes or spray. For the campsite itself I use a Thermacel. Between the two I don't get bothered by skeeters.

A propane fogger is probably your best option. They're much more effective than the citronella torches in for the traps to be effective they have to be at them.

'Skin So Soft' liquid works well...put in a spray bottle and spray yourself and the objects around where you'll be. My woman friend sprays it on her above ground pool and the mosquitoes won't bother her. She as a bug zapper too and it's busy.
