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

Not really. There is some mosquitoes in the summer, usually in the evening. Lizards frequent people's houses but are harmless and don't bother anyone at all. If you have a cat the amount of lizards decreases tremendously. - Aug 28, 2017
No major pests. - Oct 25, 2014
Insects are not much of a problem. There are few mosquitoes and flies, but ants do invade the houses in an attempt to escape the heat of summer as the weather warms up. - Jun 7, 2012
Ants come into the houses during the summer to escape the outdoor heat. I have not seen cockroaches here. - May 3, 2012
