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

We had a small problem with tiny little ants, but they were easily wiped out. There's a holiday during which the locals sacrifice lambs and tons of lambs are brought in for slaughter from the country farms. I noticed a huge increase in house flies during that time. We also have mosquitos. I recommend using the nets when you sleep at night. - Mar 5, 2017
There are flying ants in the houses often, and some mice, but overall controllable and/or seasonal. - Jul 4, 2015
No unusual ones that I've come across. There are some mosquitoes in the summer, but they aren't very bad. - Jan 29, 2013
Didn't notice any problems here. - Dec 22, 2011
