I started south from Sierra City in early July this year and did not have much in the way of mosquitoes or gnats except for a couple of nights. Those I met coming north pretty consistently told me the bugs were just over the next hill, but I never found them. Maybe a different tolerance level.

Hello Trail Friends and Mentors

I hope to hike Quincy to Burney Falls in late July this summer.

Does anyone know whether the bugs, mosquitos especially, are likely to be an issue in late July in this section? Your advice will help me plan clothes (with/without insect guard) and also whether to carry nets and spray. I am one of those hikers the mosquitos really like. :-)

Thank you so much for any light you cAn shed.
