Flies and mosquitoes live everywhere--
The further west of the beach itself and closer to the bay inlets, you tend to have more green flies & they do bite--I live exactly 1 mile due west of the beach & do not have a fly problem in my community and we have a large ornamental pond!
FYI-- Rehoboth & Dewey beaches were named beach Super Stars of U.S.-- just 4 in the nation to earn this high ranking!~
If you were to purchase a home somewhere here and you were unhappy with the amount of mosquitoes, flies, etc. There is a new spray that keeps all flying insects away for a month at a time! It works great and is not expensive. Definitely do not base your opinion on what others have told you. Come see for yourself. Our Beaches are one of the five cleanest for water purity and AARP declared t
hat Delaware is one of the best places for retirement. I have lived here my whole life and I wouldn't dream of living somewhere else on the east coast. For more info email firstname.lastname@example.org
Not sure where that came from. To my knowledge that is not true. We don't seem to get any more flies than any place else I have lived. We have fabulous award-winning beaches, great restaurants, very fun shops and nice people. I can also show you some terrific real estate values if you are considering a move here. Paula
