Hawaii has cockroaches, geckos, and mosquitos. Geckos (lizards) are actually revered due to there cuteness and appetite for eating cockroaches. The cockroaches we are able to mostly keep out of the house by having the house treated quarterly by a pest control company. Mosquitos are mostly during the rainy season and we provide citronella candles that do a good job of keeping them away.

I have owned this home for 30 years. We did a major rebuild/remodel around 2006. My wife and I raised our 3 children here with many fond memories. They are now grown up and live on the mainland.
