    I would say that the bug problem is getting better as all the standing water evaporates. I don't think they have had any consistant rain for a while now, so the water is disappearing, and so are the bugs. I am hearing less and less about them. I would still pack a little spray just incase!

    LOL, I always bring along a "travel size" OFF! just for insurance.
    Actually September is the only time I've seen them in Aruba. The keys are standing water and calm winds. If there is a tropical storm sucking up the trade winds northeast of the island, there is a good chance you will see mosquitos in Aruba.

    We are staying in the palm beach area and have found mosquitoes are a problem at night. I do not now if there is any kind of water in the neighbourhood, but we really need repellent if we want to sit outside at night.

    We enjoyed Aruba in July and I'm very happy to report that we didn't see a mosquito our entire trip. Our bug spray came back to NJ unopened (where it will probably be used quickly).

    We were there at the end of June/beginning of July and we got bit every morning. We were glad to have bug spray with us. But morning - actually early morning - before 9:00 was the only time of the day. Another patron at the Divi/Tam complained she was getting bitten quite often, she had welts all up her legs. Her blood must be really sweet! And I think they were "no-see-ums" because we never saw any! We just had bites!

    I didn't see one mosquito on Palm Beach in July! Maybe they just don't like me, which I have no complaits about!
    Decided to take down my timer!

    No bugs in April, sunrise, sunset, or daytime beach. Only 1 hr of rain in the AM.

    I got back about 3 weeks ago and I only had a few spots on my arms and legs, but my gf had a lot. Although we didn't "see" any of them they where somewhere and really left large welts all on her back and legs. It was only until about 2 weeks that the welts where gone. I wasn't aware of the problem until it was too late and even after getting spray they still got me a few times. I guess it all depends on your diet, but trust me they are still there.

    Mosquitos

    With 15 days to go before paradise revisited I would like to ask those members in Aruba now and over the next 2 weeks to let me or us know the bug situation. I realize with all the rain there has been an onslaught of the little critters, but as the weather gets back to normal I would hope my need for bug spray will subside. Thanks for any updates.
