No. - Dec 2022

Very few insects in Norway. - Jan 2020

There were many bees during summer, which occasionally made it inside the house. - Dec 2016

None - we had ants in the kitchen occasionally but I'm not sure we ever even saw another bug in the house - Dec 2015

No huge issues, except that there are virtually no screens in doors and windows in Norway, so what they do have will get in your house when you throw open the windows to enjoy the fresh air! Mosquitoes can be bad out in the forest areas, but just for the bites and itching (no disease issues). I think ticks are getting worse, so you'll want to watch out for them and the attendant tick-borne diseases (again, when you're out in the forest areas). - Jun 2015
