If you are lucky you will be greeted only by Brown County Lady Bugs upon your arrival.
(We do not charge extra for the experience.)
They are harmless and in fact quite beneficial to the environment. Always be aware
there are some critters around that can be bothersome (ants & wood roaches) and even dangerous, including
wasps, ticks, spiders & snakes.
The wood roach is a pesky problem in Brown County. It normally lives under the loose bark of dead trees, logs or stumps.
They are fairly good fliers and often enter rooms when doors are left open at night. They require moisture so may be seen around our hottubs.
Wood roaches do not survive indoors and the presence of wood roaches is strictly a temporary annoyance.
If you are allergic to insects or pollen be sure to bring your anithistimine.
If you plan to visit the park bring bug repellant, sunscreen, etc.
We cannot control Mother Nature or her critters!
