Thank you everyone for your contribution.
Looks like I am gonna be staying in a prison cell when I eventually make it there.
nop! still waiting.
Heard about the heatwave, hope you guys are coping well. Is it very humid?
No, humidity is really rare here in SA - it's a very dry heat which is nice in a lot of ways. When we do get the occasional bit of humidity, I really notice it and thank heavens we don't live in Queensland or somewhere where it's like that much more often!
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****
The worst thing with the flies is their ability to go straight for your ear hole - not around it, straight for it just to give you that "bbbbzzzzzzz" sound as close as you can get. Nothing else of any note has been a bother...well, not yet......

i have been surprised at the lack of insects in the house much to my relief but flies drive me mad!!!!! I couldn't survive with door and windows closed though, I just have Mortein in every room! The most annoying thing is that flies aim for your mouth and ers and it is horrid!!therefore I am a seasoanl dog walker much to OH's disgust - any hint of flies or snakes and I don't go!I have been surprised and quite pleased about the lack of wildlife in my house despite being further north of adelaide and usually 3 - 4degrees warmer so I wouldn't worry too much. :)
Personally I keep the screens closed in general and use barrier sprays inside and out and bug bomb every few months. We still get the odd spider etc coming in but it really isn't all that bad. Had a live huntsman in the house the other day so I tried to suck it up with the Hoover. It was too strong to actually suck up, but after I poked it a couple of times it obligingly climbed into the end of the spout to be transported outside.
i find that we have a lot less spiders than in England and I still haven't seen one as big as we used to get in Reading.
I used to ally worry about the wildlife before I came order, but it really isn't that bad.
the flies are buggers though and I find that you really need to think about the mossies and sunscreen.
