What About Bugs?

It’s a question that we hear quite often. In short, the flying biters that cause the most irritation with people are not a problem on our hiking tours. The environments that we traverse are typically too high and/or dry for the propogation of mosquitoes, black flies, biting gnats, midges, etc. There are a couple of exceptions, but those hikes take place during the shoulder seasons, and long after the bugs have already died off.

That’s not to say that we won’t see ANY bugs at all; we will. The bugs that we do see, however, usually don’t amount to more than a few flies in a cow patty or a bee in a geranium pot. Swatting and itching simply isn’t a part of our program.

Leave the bug spray at home!
