Virgin Island Mosquito Report?

Hi All,

We're heading to the BVI and USVI in about 4 weeks. Does anyone have any recent experiences regarding which anchorages have been buggy vs. mosquito free this spring?

We've previously gotten pretty eaten up at St. Francis Bay. Wondering about Waterlemon this time around?

Re: Virgin Island Mosquito Report?

Geez I was in Francis a few weeks ago and saw no bugs! Of course the wind was blowing and we always anchor (moor) pretty far back to stay away from shoreside pests and our Kiss wind gen likes being out there. No breeze at sunset we burn the coils and put the screens in for a spell. Avoid beach and shoreline at that time also if possible
