Mosquitoes really bad

If you are traveling to TB bring bug spray. The mosquitoes are really bad. This is supposed to be dry season but has rained some everyday over the last 8 days and this has caused a massive amount them. CDC recommendations are a spray with at least 20% deet. We only brought 1 bottle and now are on our 3rd between 4 adults. Very expensive here to buy and the most deet we found was 15%. Has been an awesome trip aside from the mosquitoes.

Bummer. I find TB is so dry and often breezy that it's not as bad as other areas.

But I bring (or buy there) a lot of bug spray to Jamaica, always. They love me :(

How are the mosquitoes typically in December in TB? My family will be there for Christmas.

Wow, Treasure Beach is kinda known as the "desert" of Jamaica, usually more dry than Negril.
