Dave,
Really love it down there. We have been several times over the last few years! Thought we’re had big mosquitoes up north but must admit, they don’t compare to the ones down here on the coast.
The campground has a truck that runs around doing that also..........went right by as we were setting up, got a cloud of the spray!!

I have one of the small Black Flag thermal foggers. The mosquitoes do not seem to be affected by it at all. As an alternative to DEET, I have been using products containing Picaridin. It seems to be effective and is supposed to be less hazardous than DEET which is absorbed through the skin and is a neurotoxin.

StephenH, thanks for the Picaridin suggestion. Any particular brand you like? I did get a rash a couple years about from DEET, I was using it heavily for several weeks while I was in India in an area with endemic malaria. Here I shower it off as soon as I'm done working outside. Never noticed any neur a neur a neurological effects Dead

I hate the blanket fogging, kills the tree frogs. I'd rather put up with the skeeters.

REPEL Tick Defense in a red can. 15% Picaridin. Repels Ticks & Mosquitoes for up to 10 HRS. Can be applied to clothing.

Beside the deer ticks on the label, one other thing to beware of in the south is the lone star tick. The problem is that the bite of that tick can activate an allergy to the alpha-gal sugar found in non-primate mammalian (red) meat. I am guessing that this product works to repel them as well.

Never heard of the lone star tick. Thanks for the suggestion, I'll try the REPEL.

Neither had I until one of the people I know developed a red meat allergy from a lone star tick bite.

We stayed at Cape Henlopen State park for 3 days in May. It is a very nice park wwith paved, level sites, some shade and picnic tables. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. They are individual rooms with a shower, toilet and sink. The campground is adjacent to the ferry terminal. We went over to Cape May NJ for the day. We had a nice time looking at the Victorian painted lady homes and visiting the shore. We also stayed at Pocomoke state park also - another very nice park and campground.
