I just heard Sunday morning of someone getting the West Nile virus at an NC beach.
I wouldn't risk or like going bug net-less personally, but some folks aren't bothered (like slowhike). I tend to end up as 'dinner' for the mosquito herd wherever I go. I mostly camp in NC.
The most ferocious mosquito's (misquotes
) I ever experienced was when I camped on Cumberland Island, GA. many
But as always, YMMV.
