we are treating outer wear with Permethrin and bringing head nets. We have done the BWCA many years, but always go in early May or mid September when there are very few flies. Apparently they come earlier in Old Forge then in Minnesota. . .and its been warm the past couple of weeks there. We are still going. Temps are supposed to drop which should help some.
