I've heard all the horror stories but really can't contribute. I was there last July/August, 6 million acres alight, the fires and smoke were way more hazardous than the bugs. Didn't really hit any bugs 'til after Dawson, heading east.

This was after 3 weeks on the road

I have enough skeeters already to make the outdoors annoying-I have a feeling that this is going to be a really bad year. There was plenty of snow cover and the winter was fairly mild, so the survival rate was probably on the high side. Give it a month and life will be interesting!
The worst bugs I've experienced were at the Yukon River bridge on the Dalton. They were absolutely unbelievable. I think they used DEET as an aphrodisiac and their tattos were plainly visible.....1%'r bugs all the way. Second worse were at Nancy Lake, I was wearing a mosquito headnet and the bugs almost blocked my vision. I hate skeeters. They have no redeeming qualities unless you are a hungry bat.

I'm more worried about the yellowjackets! There seem to be quite a few out already, and it isn't even June yet!
