  • Black Flies

    I'm coming up tomorrow to Lake Placid to spend a week hiking and climbing with my dog. I have a mosquito netted hat for my protection. I'm more concerned for my dog regarding the flies. Will hike Hopkins for sure, and day hikes each day in various areas of the Adirondacks, so no one answer will cover it all of course. She's on a great flea and tick preventer, Bravecto.

    Are you hiding in the shadows - forget the pain, forget the sorrow.

    Watch out for the tender spots where your dog's hair is thin, on the belly, and around the nose and eyes. Black flies love to find those places.
