Paris - Post Report Question and Answers

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

Nothing unusual - Aug 2022

Yes. Our apartment has a silver fish infestation and ant problem and unfortunately, it seems there is no requirement to do anything about it. The compound had poison spiders and caterpillars. - May 2022

No. - Sep 2021

There are mice/rats outside - never saw one inside. - Jul 2020

None. - Feb 2015

Really none. We don't have screens on the windows and may get the occasional fly in the house, but that's about it. - Jun 2013

None, although there's active apiculture (beekeeping) in downtown Paris! - Jan 2011

We don't have screens here so it's a good thing we don't get a lot of bugs! Big, slow black flies arrive in the summer months but they are easy to eliminate. We haven't had any problems with ants or other creepy crawlies in the apartment. Note that lice is an ongoing issue with kids in school and summer camp. - Sep 2010
