We didn't take headnets, and in 5 days we used less than 1/2 of a small spray bottle (2 oz?) of Cutter between the two of us. Mainly for our faces near the meadows. The only bad spot was at Barrett Lake on day 4, when the wind died down.

Our trip was from South Lake - Bishop Pass - Thunderbolt Pass - Potluck Pass - Mt Sill and back.
