St. John is a tropical paradise and bugs are plentiful. There are no freezing winters to kill them off. Although we spray for pests, it is inevitable that bugs do get in. To keep this to a minimum we request and HIGHLY recommend that dirty dishes are not left out and are cleaned immediately after every meal and that all food is ALWAYS put away when it is not being eaten so that you do not attract bugs or other pests to the property. It will be a much more pleasant experience for you to not have to share your meal with pests.
