Are there any unusual problems with insects or other infestations in housing?

No. - Aug 2, 2016
Flies in the summer. - Aug 2, 2015
Bees and wasps!!! Termites & ants, but insect treatments are available. Mosquitos. I've heard of scorpions, but they are the little ones all over the mediterranean region. However, these are all normal insect problems. Nothing dramatic around here. - Aug 12, 2014
None that would bother most people. I think we have fewer insect issues here than we did in the U.S. We just discovered this last year that they have lightning bugs in Albania! (Not a problem -- it was fun for the kids). We didn't remember seeing them our first year, but they are out at night during the late spring/early summer evenings. - May 18, 2013
Not at all. I've seen fewer bugs here in my house than I did back in the States. I have heard of a couple of scorpion sightings, but have not experienced that myself. - Dec 27, 2012
We didn't have any problems with insects, but did find a few scorpions in our house. I'm not sure if they were poisonous. - Oct 1, 2011
