We will be arriving in St. John this Sunday through April 10. Just wondering what the rain situation has been/will be and if we need to worry about a mosquito "bloom". Thanks! (we do have spray packed! :P)
We bought Cutter's (with 30% DEET) and also some repellent wipes. After Bite also! Not sure what to expect but we are prepared for the worst! I am highly sensitive to no see um bites (and mosquitoes) so that's why I was asking what it's been like lately, but so far no one has responded 🙁 Anyway, have a great trip!
We've had rather more rain than usual for this time of year and I've noticed an increase in "young" mossies in the last couple of days which is typical after rains when the hidden eggs hatch. So, yes, be prepared! Where the sand fleas are concerned, they're here year round so just stay off the beach as sunset hits as that's when they start coming out. As far as what the mosquitos will be like a few weeks from now there's no way to even hazard a guess, just be prepared all the time. This is the tropics!
