you can buy repellant there but if you prefer your specific brand then i suppose there's no harm in walking with it.

repellant is like deodorant

we get used to specific brands


but part I what I was trying to learn is ,

is April a low season time or high season time for mosquitos on Bequia ?

or is the situation the same all year long ?

Mozzies come and go, they are sometimes a nuisance in damp weather, but Bequia is lovely and sunny!

I'm pretty sure those places have mosquito nets over the beds, so sleep peacefully, a fan or a/c keeps them away too. You may need repellant on your lower legs if you're sitting in a restaurant, mozzies like to hide under a table. They don't like breeze, so April is a better bet than June - November, when there is less wind. You can buy mosquito coils for indoors and citronella candles for outside if needed, but breeze or a fan work better. You don't need to plaster yourself with repellant 24/7, so 8oz should be plenty. I'm sure you'll enjoy your stay, April and May are my favourite months on Bequia.

we recommend spraying from the knees down when you go out in the evening...other than that, sleep with a net and you should be fine...we prefer Off Skintastic which you can usually purchase here...don't use perfume as it attracts them...
