As with all places you should obey all warning signs because they are there to protect you and the park. I found the warning sign for the mosquitoes funny; but take heed they grow big here and can be quite a problem. Also, please place your trash in the appropriate containers.
pictured is a sign at the visitor center that warns of mosquito activity for the day. my visit to the swamp was on a cool fall day and i did not experience any mosquitos. in the spring and summer they can be almost unbearable. in the summer wear long sleeve shirts, pants, and bring mosquito repellant.
