No guarantees on that. We regularly fumigate our cottages with eco friendly pesticides but do remember, you are in their habitat and not the other way round.

How are the road conditions to Mugilu? Will my car make it to your place?
The first 180 km of the national highway is great with 4-6 lane toll roads. The next 40 km is a smooth 2 lane road followed by a 7.5 km single lane state highway (SH 27) recently tarred, The last 1.5 km is a mud and gravel road, which calls for some cautious driving. Of course, all cars have made it comfortably to Mugilu !! We’d like to think that the roads leading to Mugilu are a better drive than the ones you would normally take to Office within the city.
