Unhappy Treehouse Villas/Bugs??

Does anyone that has stayed at the Treehouse Villas know if we will encounter alot of BUGS? Should I bring bug spray? I'm requesting a River view so should I be concerned about mosquitos eating us alive while trying to enjoy the deck at night????

When are you going? They are less of a bother in cool months...it is the warmer months that you have to be worried about. If I were staying on the water in FL during warmer months I would bring spray. Generally mosquitos stay closer to ground level. I have never really noticed lots of bugs at Disney. Love Bugs are aggrevating twice a year but they just simply float around and do not bite.

Bring the spray and have a great time.

We stayed in a treehouse in November and had no issue with bugs. The only issue we experienced during our stay was the corn snake on the deck. Maintenance came over promptly and removed it!

Oh my, I hope we don't run into one of those LOL!!! We are going in October, so I guess I will pack bug spray (just in case) and keep our eyes peeled for those pesky slithering pests LOL! Thank you!

Don't worry about the corn snakes, they eat the mice and rats. LOL

We stayed in our Treehouse in May and the mosquitos were so bad that we couldn't use our door space at all. In fact, we practically ran from our car to the inside because they were waiting for us each time we returned to our villa.

We were there over NYE and had no bugs.

I think it depends on the time of the year.

We had two week long stays at THV and had no problem with mosquitoes. One stay was in September and the other was late Feb or early March. Absolutely love THV. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to pack insect repellant especially if you won't have a car. Have fun!

No issues two June's ago, though we spent little time outside -- hope to enjoy the deck area a little more this June!

We stayed in a THV this past October and had no issues with bugs. We also had a river view.

We stayed at the THV for a week last September and had no trouble with bugs. We never had to use our bug spray at all and didn't get bite up. I guess fall must be better than spring there.

We stayed over spring break - last week in March- and had no issues with bugs. Loved the serenity of them.
