Guess we just don't taste so good - just got back from 10 nights there - and, nary a bug, or fly did we see

Know what you mean by reactions to certain insects and them being drawn to you. My dh reacts very badly to chiggers, and my sis attracts any flea within 10 feet I can be standing next to her and her legs will get covered if they're around, and not a one on me. They bite her like crazy

I've not been bothered in cooler weather either. Also, there are no open flames at The Fort.

We were there from 11/25 - 12/2 and walked around the Fort a lot with the pups. No bugs for us either. Hope you have the same experience we did!

Right now humidity is high and the temps are 80 plus so there may be bugs since it is not cool yet. With all the rain there will be standing water at the Fort.

Wow, Did they finally get rain? We just got home Friday after 10 nights there and they were *crying* for rain (the locals, not the tourists LOL) Nary a drop while we were there (well, actually about a 3min. shower one night ).
