We were in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan a couple of years ago, and I believe some of the Minnesota mosquitoes have escaped.

Or you accept them as part of nature's experiences, adjust your attitude, dress appropriately, use smoke, and as a last resort Deet. In all the years I have been wilderness canoeing in BWCA, I bet I have only used Deet about 6 times.

Dragonflies and bats are your friends. Always select an onshore breeze spot

Please comment on your thoughts.

I always carry fishing equipment with us in the trailer, but we usually don't have the time to justify buying an out of state license, so we just spend some money at a local restaurant that serves fish.

About 2 hours before going outside of my camper I put citranella candles around the camp site. If there's a picnic table you want to sit at, put at least one under the table and several on top.
