It’s happening earlier than normal this summer. We’re receiving word at WenatcheeOutdoors.org from mountain bikers riding near Lake Wenatchee and from hikers visiting the Squilchuck Basin that the vampires are emerging. I’m not talking “Twilight;” I’m talking about those pesky blood suckers that have you posing testy questions like, ”Why did God create mosquitoes?” Answer: Some mosquitoes are pollinators; many are food for amphibians, reptiles, other insects and migratory birds; and some fish feast on mosquito eggs. The other common question: How do I keep these fiends from feasting on me? First and foremost, cover most of your skin with baggy, lightweight, tight-weave shirts (long-sleeved) and pants. Mosquitoes will bite through T-shirts and cotton sweat pants but can’t bite through lightweight uncoated nylon wind shells which are comfortable to wear in a wide range of temperatures. Specialty sport shops carry fancy wind shells while Goodwill often has cheap yet functional options. Make sure the shells are made of uncoated nylon so they breathe well while you walk.
