I've seen some scorpions in Texas too, but never close to Irving. I grew up in Irving, and I've gotta tell you--keep to the LC area! It's more expensive but nicer. You have access to multiple shopping centers that aren't run down, restaurants, doctors, hospitals, etc. Also, the nicest high school is in Las Colinas right next to the community college. They also just finished building a DART line that runs directly to North Lake (the community college). DART is our form of public transit.

As someone else stated, Texas is buggy. Be careful with your clean dishes, trash can, and other items such as those, and that will dramatically cut your chances of having bugs. Keep in mind that though your family may be clean, the tenants next door are not! That was the case in my Arlington apartment. The neighbors had the most horrific bed bug infestation, and it wasn't discovered until we began finding dead bed bugs on our bathroom floor. The complex immediately took care of it. If you notice a problem beginning with bugs, tell the office as soon as you see it. As my complex did, they may even spray in the apartments surrounding yours to make sure they get rid of the problem.

I hope you find your new, beautiful home!

It is mandatory to notify apartment management as soon as some one discovers bed bugs.
