Vancouver - Post Report Question and Answers

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

We have had a few spiders and mice, but we are in the mountains. Outside we have had raccoons, bears and mountain lions. We actually have a neighborhood bear who doesn't bother us a bit. He walks down the middle of the road, seeing if anyone left some food out then makes his way back up the mountain. Kinda fun! - May 2017

If you live out in the suburbs, you will need trash cans with lids, and bungee cords to hold them shut. Raccoons and other animals frequently invade garbage cans and make a mess. - Jun 2010
