We drove west to a place we've been before only to find those pesky tiny biting black bugs were there also. Not only them but regular flies were in abundance too. What's going on? It was hot and we were confined indoors for the remainder of the day. The next morning we moved a few hundred yards down the dirt road and amazingly there were a lot fewer pests. We stayed there, endured another toasty day then left the following morning for our winter home thirty some odd miles away.
