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

Mosquitoes and ants and many tropical bugs. - Aug 7, 2014
There are actually fewer mosquitoes than expected, but a lot of ants!!! If you don't use insecticide or refresh it every 2-3 months, you will have infestations of ants. Really big cockroaches and bees have also been an issue. Also, during various times during the year, there are large flying black ants that swarm, but they'll go away if you turn off the lights for a few minutes. - Nov 6, 2013
