NH camping and black flies

Can anyone tell me when the best time would be to camp in NH when the black flies are at a minimum? Or, how others deal with the bug factor? We do not have a screen room attachment for our trailer, as we just bought it, and are absolute newbies! Planning a trip to NH, but wondered what time of the season might be best concerning bugs.

Smile Black Flies

Thanks for the helpful information regarding the black flies! We owned a house in Nova Scotia for a number of years, and went up at different times during the summer...black flies were a BIG concern, and of the Kamikazi variety. Not a problem on the beach, but up by the house and yard, wicked. Always worse at certain times during the warm months, and we'd plan our trips when they were at a minimum. Did lots of hiking with the kids back then. So, naturally, we want to plan our trips with the camper up north with that in mind. Nothing worse than having time to spend outdoors, and have to spend it inside the camper to escape them! As a new camper owner, my guess is that campgrounds would prohibit citronella candles and such.
