Yuck! Is Texas Really Infested With Nasty Bugs and Rodents?
YUCK! Texas is Infested With Pests and Rodents
NO BRAGGING RIGHTS
Texas claims another #1 spot on a list; however, we might not want to brag about this one. A recent survey from Thumbtack, resulted in Texas gaining the number one spot as the 'buggiest' city in America.
HUMIDITY BRINGS BUGS
According to the survey, July and August are the buggiest months of the year- well lookie there, we are living in a pest paradise right now. “During summer months, the warm, humid weather can spell big trouble when it comes to mosquitos, ticks, flies, bees, and other pests,” said David Steckel, a Thumbtack’s Home Expert.
Austin came in at the fifth most bug-infested city, followed by Houston in the number 4 spot. However, Dallas boasts the title of Thumtacks 'Most Buggiest City in America.' Pretty much, this means im staying inside forever, or swimming in bug spray- either way, it's uncomfortable.
NOT OUR FIRST RODEO
Dallas and Houston are no strangers to off-putting lists. Both Texas cities landed on a list published by pest control powerhouse, Orkin. The company analyzed the number of treatments they performed and compiled a list of the most 'rattiest' cities in America- yuck!
Don't forget about Corpus Christi recently claiming the title of 'sweatiest city in America.'
