Mosquitos in Banff & Jasper in September

Hello Trip Advisor Community.

My husband and I were in Banff and Jasper in May 2017 and as everything was still covered in snow and ice, we didn't experience any problems with mosquitos. We are returning in September this year and wondered if we would be as lucky, or are we likely to be plagued by the little blighters?

Many thanks.

I don't ever recall being too bothered by mosquitoes in Jasper park in any season, but I understand there are certain areas where they can be very pesky. I think you are more likely to have issues with them in June and July rather than September. Still, never hurts to pack along Deet.

It's the beginning of mosquito season now and they'll be around for the next couple of months. They'll be all gone by September.
