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

Sand flies so make sure your pets and children have repellant when outside. Ticks. - Jan 2022

We have not had major problems. Other than mosquitos in the summer, gnats and bees are a nuisance. We see evidence of rodents in the garage, but for the most part, out houses are protected. Sand flies are unfortunately a problem, so protect yourselves and your dogs. In the summer, ticks are also abundant. - Aug 2021

Seasonally there are these weird little bugs that come in, particularly in one of the neighborhoods and the embassy will spray for them. I have experienced ants in the house, but not too extensive of a problem. In the summer, the black flies are really annoying. Overall not too "buggy" of a place. - May 2021
