Ants, mosquitoes, horseflies, water bugs, gnats, deer flies....we have them all (though no one I've heard of has seen any of those elusive deer for quite a while). It's summer now and the bugs are arriving. Just thought I'd provide "the rest of the story" for our readers. Of course most of you know that, as wonderful as Ocracoke is, and as much as we sing its praises, we do have occasional "issues" with tiny critters.
Luckily we have a mosquito control program that is quite effective, and the rest of the insects are mostly just minor nuisances. Of course you can always buy repellent from one of our local merchants if you need it. Let's hope you don't.
