No-see-ums ?

Is there a particular time of year that the no-see-ums are really bad? We hope to do a day trip to CI in mid-April and wonder if this is a bad time of year? Thanks!

The times that nooseeums are around depend on the weather. A sunny day without wind can be bad. Mid-April would be a time when they could be around. Cumberland Island does not spray for noseeums as far as I know, so if you are prepared for them, you'll be better off. My husband and I were there in December on a nice sunny day and they were out. However, they like to congregate around shrubs, tree lines and particularly marsh. So out on the beach would be better. Be prepared and bring spray, hats, long sleeve shirts and long pants. Do not wear anything scented, i.e. hairspray, deodorant and perfume. Also, don't let this stop you from enjoying the Island. Just keep moving and stay away from those areas mentioned.
