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

None that I have seen. - Sep 26, 2016
Maybe some mosquitoes in the summer, but, honestly we rarely encounter any insects. - May 17, 2016
Only occasional mosquitoes. - Sep 11, 2015
none really - Jun 30, 2015

None - a perk of the cold climate! - Nov 13, 2013
Not a major issue. - Jul 28, 2013
I haven't noticed any in Moscow. Siberia is famous for mosquitoes and ticks. Bring repellent if you plan on doing some hiking in the more rural parts of Russia. - Jul 18, 2013
None. - Jan 13, 2013
Very few, but there are some when it's warm. If you have screens, keep them closed when the windows are open. - Mar 14, 2012
Haven't noticed much. Some mosquitoes in summer/spring. - May 29, 2011

None. I don't think I ever saw an insect within city limits, even in parks - Feb 13, 2010
none - Jan 23, 2010
None at all. I had maybe three mosquito bites in August. I saw two or three flies all summer. That's it! - Nov 6, 2009
I hardly ever see a bug. Sort of exciting to see a spider in the bathtub once a year. - Oct 24, 2009
None really. - Aug 29, 2009
Hardly any. We had ants but got rid of them easily with ant spray and traps. - Aug 22, 2009
