Two years ago they were horrible the week of June 24th, this year they were "almost" non-existant the first week of June.
Even during the buggy trip two years ago, it was still a great trip. They thinned out for the most part below Jack Creek. We camped at opposite stampede the first night and we had the kids hiding under a net all evening while the adults mostly wore headnets and long sleeves/long pants.
Night two was just an application of full strength DEET.
By night 3, we were able to scale back to some non-DEET hippy repellant and then nothing after that.
