What Regulations should I Know ?
Just a few note on Mosquitoes ?
Mosquitoes in the everglades are at their worst in the hot humid summer
Needless is say they are present year round, but your trip should not be
to much by them if you follow some simple tips.
|Avoid grassy areas where mosquitoes hide.|
|Where you can stay on the boardwalks and pavement.|
|Stay in the open, and breezy areas out of the shade.|
|If you are going to be spending any amount of time in the|
backcountry you will need protective clothing. Long sleeved
shirt, and a good mosquito net jacket get one that keep the
netting away from your skin.
|From my point of view I personally believe in chemical warfare when|
it comes to these guys. Be careful when using repellents on kids.
|I try to make it a point to do all my activities in the park during the|
day and be out of their when the sun goes down when ever possible.
If you are driving to Key West
either from home or after
flying into Miami this is a must side trip.
