First time camper - making a list of things I'll need to bring/buy. Just wondering what the insect situation is like in Indio? Will I need a Costco sized can of bug spray?

when I went in 06, there were zero bugs, but i'm sure all the self-proclaimed experts will swoop in with the answers you're looking for

the only pests will be the guys looking for the gay orgy

seriously, there are zero insects or other life anywhere to be found save for humans, and the odd fly near a garbage can. nothing that stings, bites, or otherwise causes problems anywhere in sight.
I fucking LOVE the desert.
it was one of the first things I noticed about being out there compared to the mosquito, moth, and wasps issues we get in sub-shield canada in spring.

this winter we had some significant rain= more plants= more bugs and creepy crawlers= more lizards and snakes.... all the land out here is full of wildflowers in bloom... i hang out in the outdoors often and there are A LOT of insects this year... if you drive on the freeway for any length of time your car and windshield will be a MESS of insect explosions in no time at all... in the night all the bugs will be attracted to your lights... be prepared or be sorry
