Hello
Can anyone inform me on the situation of how bad the
Sand Fleas really are in AC.
A party of 4 are planning to go to AC in Dec./03- Jan
04.This a concern of ours?
I was @ Foxy's bar Jost Van Dyke B.V.I. in November/02 for 7 days and was eaten alive by the
No See Ums, ended up in the hospital due to reaction
from the bites.
Does anyone have a remedy to combat these pests?
Some interesting comments on this board.
Also does anybody remember some people from
Saskatoon Sk. Canada a Ray Twanow and his wife
who used to own a resort in Belize?

Each beach area has different sand-flea issues, and they are seasonal. Ending up in the hospital from their bite means somebody is highly allergic and should check with a doctor.
In December most beach places tend to have those bugs at dawn and dusk.
There is a little device called "Vape" that effectively eliminates them inside. Outdoors the best repellant is Skintastic Cream (not liquid).

(i didnt pre-read marty's old thread)

but in a nutshell, i remember everyone saying slathering on baby oil was the answer for these pests. they apparently wont touch you as long as you stay greasy. i guess you need to apply the SPF 30 under it?

save the bug spray for the august mosquitoes.
