After a foot long centipede chased me down my hallway laughing at me - I called Oliver's and they came and sprayed. Not one bug for three months except my weird ceiling gnat issue which also seems a little better. Downstairs (which is outside) and the driveway is an entomologist dream. They can all stay as long as they all party down there. Saw a massive centipede eating a frog last week :-O I refuse to spray outside as its will eventually end up in the thing I love most - our oceans.

Awe sorry man no pics. Was late at night and I was down stairs looking for something. Walked by and did a double take. Could see the mandibles chewing the frog. Was hard core lol.

Thanks for previous reports.
I just relocated to St. Croix and am renting an AirBnB. Beautiful photos w/subtle rephrasing- "dense foliage-("picturesque") remote location ("quiet/secluded"). No mention of pesky frogs, mosquitoes and millipedes.:-o

Had to discover home remedies- cloxax for the frogs and salt for the milimedes- placed around the doors and walkways and sprayed on window sills. Use of coils, repellents, salves & creames have provided little relief in fighting mosquitos.

I'm moving in 10days to a unit w/monthly extermination and w/far less foliage. Loving the island life--avoiding unwelcome pests!:P

1. Nowhere in the tropics will you find such listed. It's like moving to the middle of NYC and expecting the walk-up ad to note 24/7 traffic sounds or moving next to a railroad siding and getting upset about the noise of trains. "Pesky" frogs? Sweet lullabies during the night and they eat lots of mosquitoes and other bugs.

2. You won't be avoiding them!
