Are there any biting insects?

Normally, during June and July there are few, if any biting insects to bother us.  On occasions we have encountered mosquitos in the mountains but this has been more a seasonal abnormality rather than a norm. We advise that when walking in the mountains, a long sleeved shirts and long trousers are worn to protect against sunburn or biting insects.  If you know you have a bad reaction to biting insects then we advise you bring insect repellent and anti-histamine tablets or cream to treat any bites.
