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

Nothing serious. We did have some signs of rats in the house but GSO took care of it quickly. - Aug 7, 2017
There are mosquitoes, but I have not heard of any cases of dengue or malaria. - May 18, 2016
The mosquitos can be fierce in the summer and early fall, but they don't carry any diseases in Chengdu so not a big deal. - Aug 2, 2013
Large cockroaches and lots of mosquitoes. - May 4, 2013
