Mosquitoes right now at byodo in?

We wanted to go to byodo in temple but my husband is concerned about mosquitoes there. Last time we were eaten alive. Is that a concern now?

They get a fair amount of rain. I would have some repellent, put it on before arrival.

We were there on Friday and I didn’t notice too many. I am usually a mosquito magnet and didn’t notice any bites. But if you have bug spray it wouldn’t be a bad idea

No matter what time of year I go there I ALWAYS wear bug repellent. Learned the hard way the first time I went there. Better safe than miserable.

Do you know they sell a perfume at Victoria's Secret called Bombshell that has been shown to be more effective than any commercial mosquito repellent?! Honestly, Google it!

I love this perfume (got it for the first time on a trip to Honolulu coincidentally) and never get bitten when I wear it.

Expensive but effective. Just a thought ; )

I am a mosquito magnet! I have never got a mosquito bite in about 20 visits to Byodo-In Temple.

In Minnesota, I don't dare go outside close to sunset without repellent!
