“upper level in two story buildings as ground floor can have small and big visitors from lush vegetation starting right behind the rooms, nothing unusual but not everybody's cup of tea. Killing fields (fogging) brought an array of crawling visitors fleeing into the guest rooms, the zoo comes right to you!”
