A creepy topic: BUGS. Yep, we hate ‘em too. But roaches and ants are a reality on our barrier island. Some critters like the Palmetto (American Cockroach) can even fly inside from their usual home in our palm trees and they give true meaning to the words “Everything is Bigger in Texas”. They look like a giant version of their great uncle – the common cockroach. YUK!! We do our best to keep the pests away – all of our properties are thoroughly cleaned and all have regular pest control. As creepy as they may make you feel, an occasional roach or line of ants in this part of the world are a fact of life and does not mean that the property has been poorly maintained. But there are some things that you can do to help:
Plastic not paper. Roaches love paper and glue so bag your groceries in reusable fabric or plastic bags so that the bugs do not travel with you.
Keep food sealed. All food should be stored either in the refrigerator or in sealed packages or containers. We recommend that you bring Zip-Loc type storage bags and re-sealable containers for your leftovers. (These are also great for gathering treasures from the beach!)
Keep your property clean during your stay. Bugs are attracted to food and water – they’ll even eat your worst recipes! So clean up all areas where food is prepared and served, clean up spills and crumbs from snack foods immediately, and don’t leave dirty dishes lying around.
If you have any questions, please call us and we will do all we can to help - we can ask the pest control service to come back out but we cannot provide compensation if one of the island’s common residents decides to visit during your stay.
A mandatory evacuation of South Padre Island will entitle you to a refund of the unuse portion of your stay. If a mandatory evacuation is not issued no refund will be issued. We encourage all guests to consider travel insurance to protect you in the event of inclimate weather.
