BWCA rules are strictly enforced. In addition to the no disposable
container rule, watch out for the crew size limits. Read the rules carefully.
Our experiences with bugs is quite a bit different. The last two years we
have gone in late July/early August. We have had minimal bugs during the
day, primarily on portages. Sunset brings them out in hordes, counted
over 100 one night on the tent screen, but we just went to bed early and
they weren't a problem. It may depend on what time of year you go.
