Tell me about the black flies in Maine

Jump to last reply

We're starting to plan a Jun 2007 trip to the Bar Harbor area (I know, it's a long time away but we want to use freq flier miles so we need to book far in advance.)

Some of the websites I've looked at note that the black fly season is mid-May to mid-June. What can I expect from these little buggers? Do they swarm you while you're hiking? Are they mainly around the lakes and ponds or all over? If we go in the 3rd week of June am I risking having a miserable vacation (we really hope to spend all our time outdoors)?

Thanks for any insight you can offer.
