PERSONAL SUPPLIES

Believe it or not, black bears are found in the Florida Panhandle, including our neighborhood.  Bears are DANGEROUS. Please put garbage outside ONLY in the  trash cans on the side of the house during the day (don't leave out overnight, this can attract bears). Please be responsible and deter unwanted wildlife where possible by not leaving food, compost, or birdseed outside that attracts wildlife, insects and other pests. Please be aware that we perform regular pest control, but given the location of the home, you may see or encounter bugs and/or wildlife while in the home or neighborhood, including but not limited to: ants, bugs, birds, bees, wasps, bats, mosquitoes, spiders, snakes, fireflies, butterflies, beetles, skunks, raccoons, black bears, etc. Bug spray is recommended in warmer months.
