When you plan to go camping, one thing you should anticipate is insect bites from the camping site. While some insects are harmless, others are quite troublesome. Most people hate insects and are allergic to their bites. 

Mosquitoes are probably the most common insects that many campers encounter. Their bites have a good sting and can at times cause serious itching and discomfort to some people as a result of allergy. Under such circumstances, such individuals are advised to visit a doctor immediately. 

It is therefore important to keep away from being bitten by mosquitoes. Campers can use a repellant that contains DEET, which is a most common active ingredient in mosquito repellants. It could also help to put up a camp in an area with sufficient breeze. In the evenings, making a camp fire can help keep off mosquitoes. If a camper feels the need to walk around, it is wise to wear bright colored clothing instead of dark clothes. Mosquito head nets are also effective in keeping mosquitoes away from the face when sleeping. 

Black flies, which are also called horse flies, are another kind of insects encountered by campers. They have a particularly painful bite. Nonetheless, DEET has not proved to be effective against them. The best prevention is to put up, and shelter in a screen tent in the camp site. These insects can also be eliminated using a fly swatter. 

When camping, among the insects that should be avoided are ticks. This is not because of their sting, but because of the many serious diseases that they potentially carry. In the Midwest areas of the United States, ticks are known to carry diseases like the Lyme disease. In the Western regions, ticks carry the Colorado fever as well as the Rocky Mountain Spotted fever. 

Ticks are more common during spring time and early summer when the vegetation gets green in the woods where people love camping. It is important not to get into direct contact with the thick brushes in the bush. Also avoid areas with tall grass. 

Hikers need to thoroughly check themselves after the hike. It is wise to be sure that you do not have any ticks sticking on your clothes or skin. They can however be easily removed by tweezers. But if they have been on the skin for an extended period of time, a doctor needs to be consulted. Do not use nail polish, alcohol or petroleum products. They tend to make the situation worse. 

Before going camping, one should be aware of the insects that he or she is allergic to. This is because research has shown that more people have died from wasp and bee stings than attacks by any other insects. One should be sure to carry their medications for the allergies before leaving the house to go camping. The risks of the sting may not be very high, but the long period of time campers spend while hiking may aggravate the situation.
