Hello everyone, and particularly members from North America!
In the second half of June, the Pine Marten clan, including Young Pine Marten who will be ten months old, are off to Québec and Ontario for two weeks, the second of whish will be spent by a lake in a sort of chalet, doing what the Canadians call "cottaging", which is very different from what that means in the UK. Anyway, I assume there will be plenty of mosquitos around, something YPM has never yet been exposed to. I'm planning on buying a mosquito net to put over his cot for a start. But I was also wondering what mosquito repellents and so on you'd recommend, especially for a baby? I'm not sure how different Canadian mosquitos are to their European brethren (three times as big, probably, same as all the other American incarnations of European animals...) and how they react to different products. I don't know whether June is the height fo mosquito season either.
Anyway, any advice and experience you may have to share on attempting to protect babies from Canadian mosquitos in the summer would be very helpful.
