Probably, but the winner would be PAYDAY BARS . . . they don't seem to melt at all . . . as for the mosquitos, probably not that big a deal and as far as bringing enough bug juice, you can usually find an ample supply of it in the hikers barrels at VVR and MTR, so I wouldn't haul too much from the start.
I usually do the JMT in mid-august and while I will bring a small bottle of repellant, I rarely use it.
