strange question--mosquitos?

Just how bad are the mosquitos in ilha grande? Are they worse than in other places in Brazil? I know that's a strange question but my daughter is attacked by mosquitoes while i do quite well. Is it a scenario that they actually buzz around you and you swat them away constantly--or not quite like that? We are thinking about being there in December but could go other places too.

Mosquitos are everywhere in Brazil, including Ilha Grande, but a good insect repellent is all you need to keep them away. I would not cross of Ilha Grande because of them.
