INSECT AND ANIMAL BITES

“In my life outdoors, I’ve observed that animals of almost any variety will stand in a windy place rather than in a protected, windless area infested with biting insects. They would rather be annoyed by the wind than bitten.”

—TIM CAHILL

What’s a camping trip without a few chigger bites? While most encounters with insects are more annoyance than injury, sometimes you will need to treat an insect bite (or at least soothe the sting). As unlikely as it may seem, insect stings can be more dangerous to you than animal bites!
