Yesterday, at the Mill Brook trailhead for Pharaoh Lake, the mosquitoes were enough to annoy. It is a late season.

Hiked into Colden from the Upper Works earlier this week and the only bugs were in the parking lot. No issues at all while on the trail to and from Colden, and I mean no mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies, etc.

Fished the South Branch of the Moose River in the Plains on Saturday. Mosquitos were pretty bad.

Backpacked into Colden last week and saw/felt nary a flying bug. Got back to Upper Works and while putting my stuff back in the car a single black fly got into the car. Little bastard bit me three times while I was driving. At one point I swatted him and missed, and my car swerved off the road. Not sure what happened to him, but I think he was sending me a message!!!

Sitting out at the cabin this afternoon and they were aggressively biting us. Strangest year I've seen in a long time. Usually, by late August, the mosquitos are gone. I've never seen them this thick in late September. Very odd.

They are always hungry right before they die...

Looks like a thermacell right between those two chairs would solve the problem.

That's exactly what we did!

If I had that spot I wouldn't let some damn mosquitoes ruin it for me

Since I posted other comments about our Little Tupper Lake experience I'll add that these buggers were still out and biting in both the Old Forge area and LTL. Fortunately we had a breeze most of the time but when it was calm they were quick to attack. Certainly nothing I've experienced before on a late September trip
