Flies & etc on Broadkill beach last week in May

HI everone

Im looking to rent a house with toddler in tow in last week in May.

Toddler is in full run -mode so I would like to be able to take him for walks in morning and evening and have him play in water.

I would be grateful for any insights on the fly/bug situation in late May.

How bad are the flies & bugs? bad enough for bug spray & long sleeves/pants?

Is there generally any wind?

rental is in the 2200 block of bayshore drive.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Might consider Lewes. The municipal beach there is great for toddlers.

I will second Frank n' Pat's suggestion. Amazing how close these two beaches are, yet how different conditions can be at each. And at Lewes beach, you have parking right by the sand, bathroom/bath-house, and concession stand (+ Dairy Queen). Perfect swimming beach for toddlers & young children.

If it's not too late, maybe look for a rental there instead.
