The Black Fly and Mosquitos Locations

Jump to last reply

I'm curious, and would also like to help warn any travellers coming to my area, Muskoka, or Agonquin Park areas about the Black Fly season. While people are so concerned about the mosquitos, i find the Black Fly far worse, and i'm allergic to its bite, if they bite me on the eyelid, my eyelid is swollen shut for a good week!
I was wondering what other areas have these terrible bugs!!! They are so bad i'm literally a shut in, until they are gone.
We attempted a trip in one of the Yurts last year the first of June forgetting about the Black Flys.... the middle of Algonquin Park, in one of those and Black Flys so thick, needless to say they had a feast on me no matter what replellant i put on.... and i actually bare scars from where these suckers took chunks out of me....
Are they in your area???? and where would that be???
