So just HOW bad are the mosquitoes

Alaska Forum - Relocation, Moving, Local City Discussions - City-Data Forum - www.city-data.com
I've heard the joke that the mosquito is the Alaskan state bird. My uncle claims that when he visited his brother who lived in Anchorage at the time, that he heard a low hum that he thought was a lawn mower but actually mosquitoes.

So do Alaskans stumble through swarms of bloodsuckers every summer or is it exaggerated? I understand why there would be mosquitoes in boggy areas, like where the permafrost partially melts during summer. I assume the worst areas for mosquitoes are areas where there is partial permafrost, and that they aren't as bad in the southeast or anywhere without permafrost.
