I lived in RI for 22 years and while I remember needing bug spray as a kid, we also lived in a neighborhood of back yard pools which attract mosquitoes. I also went to URI and remember getting emails about mosquito season and precautions to take to avoid diseases from the bugs. The more I think about it, I think you may have an issue with mosquitoes, I always remember having a citronella candle or two at outdoor BBQs in the summer. However, I think you could avoid the spraying and just get some gentle bug spray to leave in the bathroom, like the Avon Skin So Soft.

Honestly I don’t think I can recall being bothered by mosquitos near the ocean. I second what pp said, maybe just have some bug spray on hand if guests need it.

Well, remember that Blithewold is thick with gardens and surrounded by trees and other vegetation. So sure, it’s near the bay, but it can get pretty buggy here in Bristol under conditions like that. Not exactly the beach, which isn’t buggy– I wish this applied to all near water places haha.

To gin and tonic: How did you make out with the bug spraying? I am also getting married at Blithewold and heard about this recently. I think it is rediculous that they charge for that. Shouldn’t it be part of the up keep of the grounds. We certainly do not pay to cut their grass and manicure their gardens!
