So my wife and I are coming down next month and she has been doing lotsa research and came across this tidbit.

Needless to say she is scared sh!tless now and is having trouble getting excited about our trip.

Please help me reassure her. How common is this? Are mosquitoes bad during August? Should we stay off the mainland tours (temple tours, cave tubing, etc)?

Thanks....

I've lived here 14 years and have not had a bot fly experience. Hope that helps.
Biggest worry is over-tanning your banana.

no reason to fear. thats for sure. dogs in oregon get em too. its a joke thing for me, sorry to get her stirred up. i'm always hoping to get one. its a life goal.

they aren't like everywhere or anything. never seen em on the caye, just on the mainland. and that isn't a reason to avoid the mainland either. you won't get one.
