Default Mosquitoes in Alaska

DO NOT, and I repeat DO Not Fail to take a mosquitoes replellent like
"Deet" aka "Sawyer Maxi Deet" is the most recommended and effective s[pray repellent. It come in a small cannister that can fit into a pocket book or jacket or pants pocket. If you forget it you can probably buy it in an Alaaska drug store or hardware store.

Default Re: Mosquitoes in Alaska

I've been twice in June and never saw any mosquitos. There's a discussion on another board and Karen hasn't seen many bugs either in 17(?) trips. Maybe in the interior, but in the port towns, I wouldn't worry. I'm a mosquito magnet (I'm scratching 5 bites now from feeding the stray cat last night without protection), so I was really worried the first time I went. But not one bite, and no one I talked to had any either.

Where did you notice them, Hanna?

Yes, I once almost got carried away in Wonder Lake, beg. of August one year. Very very few "regular" visitors go there. I now don't go there until the end of August- again this year.

The only times I remember getting 'bugged" were the outings to lakes/slow rivers.

Never on the coastline.

I was born and raise in Alaska if that's any help
