North Island Sand Flies?

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I travelled around the South Island of New Zealand 3 years ago and a travelling companion was badly effected by sand fly bites while at Milford Sound and while travelling right up the West Coast. The East Coast and Queenstown were fine.

We are planning to go to the North Island in September this year and we are understandably concerned about sand flies again.

Can anyone advise their experiences? Are there areas we should avoid?

Thanks for your help
