Enormous mosquitoes during the summer. I mean huge! They seem capable of carrying off small children! Also, tiny little biting black-flies are also annoying in the spring and summer. - Aug 2010

Mosquitoes are quite nasty in spring/early summer around the urban area. More exotic bugs (black flies, etc) can be found in the more rugged terrain located on the Gatineau side of the river. - Nov 2009
