The regions North of the Yukon River, all the way to the Arctic, are the worst for mosquitos in general.  The worst time of year to go is in July, however you are likely to encounter them as soon temperatures remain above freezing for a couple of weeks.

You can bring repellant, but the stuff that repels the best is bad for your skin and clothes, and will contain a measured amount of deet.  Since I personally prefer to not to crop dust myself, you can purchase netting to go around your hat or head, and maintain long sleeves and pants throughout the day. 

If you still get bit, don't scratch!

You would easily enjoy at least 4 days in Yellowstone; 1-2 days in the Tetons and at least another 4 days in Glacier...all can easily take lots more days to enjoy; but to see the minimal and hike a little; visit museums and visitors centers, I'd say at least the amounts I listed above. All are absolutely gorgeous parks by themselves!! Enjoy! I am jealous!

I would allow at least 2 full days for each park, probably 3 days to be on the safe side. There's so much to see at these parks that anything less than 2 days simply isn't enough, depending on what you want to do. If it's worth the time going to each place, it's sure worth it to spend enough time to see it all. Don't try to rush through everything because you'll miss out on lots of things. It's also a good idea to have a lantern on hand powered with batteries in case you run out of daylight hours.

With only 3-4 days at the park, it's best to choose just a few areas of the park to explore. There's so much to do and see at Glacier that you can always plan a return trip to see the northern reaches of the park!
