NYgal, did the whole search thing twice and came with info on seasafe and suncreen to protect but not really on when it appears and how long it stays. I was looking for some of the locals to help me on this one. I can't come during the winter months this year so it has to be spring or summer. I think I would rather bring seasafe then deet so I am looking towards May/June rather than July/August. It won't matter when it is there, still going!
