No-Seeums/sand flies all year round?

We just returned from a fabulous week in West Bay, Roatan, and loved everything about it except the sand flies/no-seeums. Even with repellent, I got bit. Is there one season or another that they are no and flies/no-seeums or are they there 12 months a year, day and night? Thanks so much

365 a year

Mostly the hour after Sunrise and around 16:30 hours

Use DEET. It works, as tested by the Military.

They may be worse around the sunrise sunset times but I can find them bothersome, if I forgot my deet, any time during the day, not so much in the evening once the sun sets and the temps drop ever so slightly, 365 days a year , or 366 on leap year
