Uh oh ... I just saw a couple postings about sand flys but I don't know what they are so will read up on them. My big concern is are they like mosquitos and are drawn to only certain people? Is it the worst in Fiordland? I'm worried for my husband since he can attract mosquitoes miles away & this could be a deal-breaker for him.
I am blessed that bugs have no interest in me. My husband on the other hand gets attacked by anything. We have had arguments that I said "there's no mosquitos here! Geeesh!" only to be shown bites on his legs - whooops! So you get the picture, he's extremely miserable and I have no clue bugs even exist. Once we went hiking in our area and flies were just buzzing around his face that I couldn't stand it. We could not get rid of them until we ran to the car and left.... not good!
