      Growing up in Western Mass, and now living in Northern CT, Ican
      attest to the black flies in the spring! We used to call them May
      Flies, I think because they come on strongest in May. (duh!)
      Mosquitoes get ugly towards July & August, they were real bad last
      September on a three day hike up the M&M.

      I like the idea of te tick repellant too, they get bad here too.
