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

Termites, geckos, lizards. - Oct 29, 2017
Mosquitos, termites, and geckos are all normal in your housing. - Oct 18, 2017
In some ways insects are few given that there are many kinds of lizards that eat them. I don't think I ever saw bees or wasps but there are definitely mosquitoes which bring lovely free gifts such as dengue fever and malaria. - Aug 2, 2015
Mosquitoes during the rainy season. Bring your malaria meds because you'll be far away from a hospital that's up to standards. - Jul 7, 2013
