Insects & Bugs - Mosquito

Unfortunately, mosquitoes are a harsh reality of life in the tropics. Mosquitoes are usually prevalent after big rains, and feed at dawn and dusk. There is no way to eradicate them, so come prepared! Here on St. Croix mosquitoes can carry some viruses such as dengue fever and chikungunya, so do your best to avoid being bitten. Bring your favorite non-aerosol bug spray, bug repellant wipes, garlic water or what ever concoction you desire just in case you think you might be a target. Most hotels, bars and restaurants on St. Croix can provide repellant if you need it. Keep a fan running at night to circulate the air and keep the mosquitoes at bay.
