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

None. - Jun 23, 2015
I think I have seen 2 flying insects since I got here. There are areas outside of Reykjavik with giant flies, but on a day-to-day basis insects are non existent. A couple months ago a man found a cockroach in an apartment complex hallway and it made the evening news, complete with a video of the creature in a jar. - Feb 13, 2013
This island is blissfully bug-free, apart from some bumble bees and mosquitoes in the summer months. - Jul 29, 2011
