Don't Bother!
The most misquitos you will ever see. We got out of our car and walked to the beach area. The little stingers were swarming us. We ran back to the car without even getting to enjoy the beach. My 3 year old had 52 bites and my husband had 27. Luckly, my 11 year old and myself didn't have but a few. It was the worst!! Family with young children05-13-09
