Are there large "scary" insects in jamaica?
(Milwaukee WI USA)
Hello! Thank you for reading my question.
I visited Jamaica this past Christmas and had a powerful and wonderful experience. I plan to return and am considering an extended stay.
I did not see any insects during my visit, however since its a tropical island, I wonder if large (over 1") cockroaches or flying insects exist and are common pests on the island.
It may be worth noting that I plan to stay along the beach (in the Negril area) and out of the forested areas so I am guessing there would be fewer insects along the coast.
I'd be grateful for any insight you could share. Thanks very much!
