Coming from Puget Sound, we don't have much to deal with in the way of insects.. pretty much spoiled in that way. Can you tell me what to expect during the year down there in the way of biting and stinging creatures? Should I expect some of the insects to possibly carry away our SUV?

What insects?

You'll find CO to be pretty bug-free compared to WA.

Are you kidding? There's no bug problem here in Colorado. Quite the opposite.

If you want a bug problem, move to Austin Texas.

I like that. VERY MUCH. I think overall, we are sold on Colorado. We loved it when we visited. So different than here yet very beautiful in different ways. My husband works for MSFT up here and it would be nice to get a job with MSFT down there to make an easy transition.. if that doesn't happen, we'll need to look at another angle. ....Know anybody that is looking for a Senior level Program Manager/Application Architect/Infrastructure Manager...etc.. in the tech industry. I'm ready to jump!

Yeah, what I read a few minutes ago about bugs in Austin creeped me out just thinking about how to deal with all of them.

Pretty true. Veterinarians in CO told me not to bother with Advantage/heartguard because the vermin (that caused heartworm) couldn't survive in this altitude so it was a waste of money.

To the OP: I know this is a little off topic, but if you want a directory for the area you're moving to feel free to visit www.rockymountainyellowpages.com or www.golden411.com

Denver, especially Capitol Hill (the most populous part of Denver) has a bed bug problem.

http://bedbugregistry.com/location/co/

Be aware. Check out an address at The Bedbug Registry website before moving there. I live in Capitol Hill and have never had a problem (uh, I've been here all of 3 weeks) but I hear they're no fun to deal with.
