I can't think of one that will meet all your needs, but if someone knows about one they won tell.

The Northwest Florida area still has affortable housing, low crime, if you have the proper skills jobs are available, nice people, and good weather most of the year. We have critters (mentioned above) limited on Croc's, yes we do have snakes and spiders.


But this is a friendly area and the positives are greater than negatives...

Charlotte meets the bill, but no matter what anyone says, you're going to have bugs anywhere that's not in an Artic region. It's just that some areas are worse that others. Is that what you mean?

Hey......I grew up with roaches, they all hide when you turn the lights on. Just don't only expect a toy prize when you open the Alpha-Bits!

I think the only place I've ever lived where I didn't notice many bugs was Henderson, Nevada. There were lots of spiders, especially black widows outside around the house that I had to kill, but they're easy to spot because of the LSD inspired webs. What I liked about Henderson besides the warm weather and extremely low humidity was that there were NO flies, NO mosquitoes (to me there is nothing more irritating than trying to get to sleep and then hearing next to your ear that high whining buzzing sound of a mosquito waiting to land and dine on you.. ), and no gnats. There were very few flying bugs. The abundance of dragonflies there might explain the lack of flying bugs. I think dragonflies are fascinating, but to the insect kingdom, they're the most vicious and efficient hunters on the planet, like killer helicopters with nightmarish weapons systems! They kill and eat tons of other insects, so are wonderful to have around. Cockroaches...yeah...but they lived mostly in the garage and the ones that got into the house became snacks for my cats (though I'd nearly puke when I'd look at the cat and it would look back and then I'd hear the crunch as the cockroach was pierced by the cat's teeth. They also ate the grasshoppers that got in- but spit the legs out). Flies and mosquitoes are my bane. I hate them. I don't much mind spiders except the poisonous ones.

You need to define what your definition of good weather is. To some it will be 4 distinct or traditional seasons, cold weather, warm weather, hot weather. Arizona is ideal weather from say October give or take a few weeks until May, again depending on what you like. I wish I had the money to leave Arizona all summer!!

I can say that I've never, ever seen a cockroach here in Colorado. The little ones may be here somewhere but I've never seen one. The big ones don't live here. I moved here from Georgia to get away from the cockroaches! Colorado Springs does have the best weather. Usually don't get as much snow as the rest of the state. I've been looking for a place that is warm year round but doesn't have cockroaches. I don't think it exists (I have a phobia about the giant cockroaches...in Atlanta they walk around all the time, day or night!).
