Vientiane - Post Report Question and Answers

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

It is a tropical country so don't be surprised to find ants or other six-legged friends in your house. Mosquitoes were not too bad. I have seen one snake near my house in nearly two years here. - Jun 2020

There are many insects here. Ants, mosquitos, etc. It's a tropical environment. - Oct 2018

Mosquitos mostly, especially during the rainy season. We had nets over the beds (that GSO installed for us) and sprayed the kids. We managed three years with only a handful of bites. There was a great company in Canada that had pre-treated nets and shipped them pretty quickly. - Jan 2014
