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 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
