The Bug Dance

Yes, we are all doing the Bug Dance these days. Locally known as the Muskoka Wave, this phenomena is generally observed during Black Fly season. You may have found yourself doing the Bug Dance but not known there was a name for it, as it is usually an unconscious reaction. If you've never done the Bug Dance, here are the steps:

  1. travel to an region known for Black Fly populations
  2. get out of the car and step into a wooded area, preferably in a wilderness setting
  3. do not apply any repellant or wear bug netting
  4. remain still until you are surrounded by a cloud of hungry insects
  5. wave your arms about your head, in an effort to fend off the bugs
  6. shuffle your feet to maintain the rythym with your arms
  7. you're doing the Bug Dance!
