Many states in the far south where there is intense heat and/or humidity for large parts of the year. Also, very congested/high density population states.

And many states in the North are too cold and impossible to get around because of the snow for the large parts of the years.

So what would be the worst state for me?
You "hate" spiders, but apparently dont know a doggone thing about them. First off, NO spiders are "poisonous", theyre ALL VENOMOUS. Secondly, size makes no difference in the spider world. Of the 4 (!!!!) POTENTIALLY lethal spiders on earth, theyre small. Big spiders (ie tarantulas) are completely harmless. The only spiders in the states that you should be a little wary of are brown recluse spiders, which deaths are ultra, ultra rare (cytotoxic venom) and the black widow, which deaths are also very rare. If you have any more questions, let me know. I keep and study spiders, its an odd hobby I know. But seriously, theres nothing to worry about. If your arachnophobia is that crippling that it prevents you from moving somewhere, thats pretty serious.

Hey rude one, he was giving the OP advice, and his advice is correct. And your statements are, as everyone knows, ridiculous. But truth be told, where there is warmer weather year round, there are more bugs. There are also more venomous snakes in warmer states, so he is also correct in those regards.

Hmmm, considering TX generates either the highest or 2nd highest amount of thunderstorms and/or tornadoes (I forget who's exactly first), I think your claim is ridiculous. Do you not see that your state is the worst (or close to) in those regards? Not to mention hurricanes and tropical storms as well.

Instead of giving you places you should avoid, how about I give you a few states you should move to...it would be shorter:

Central Alaska, Eastern Washington, Eastern Oregon, Northern Idaho, Western MT, Northern and Western Maine, Northern New Hampshire, Northern Vermont, Adirondacks of New York

That's about it.

Hey Steve...ya ol' yankee antagonist and good "argue the War" buddy! Friendly greetings from sunny Texas! LOL

Seriously though, WestHou wasn't being rude at all. He was simply replying to a post that could have been considered rude in its own turn if one chose to take it that way. I am not saying the original one WAS, only that my friend WH was just offering commentary along the same lines and intent of the one he was replying to.

I thought the original and reply both had good and relevant points.

There was nothing for anybody to get upset over...

I hate to say this, but you would not initially like Alabama. Summer usually has plenty of thunderstorms, and Alabama actually has two tornado seasons (late-fall and spring). Birmingham celebrates Do Dah Day, a day to celebrate dogs. Alabama is also very biodiverse, which includes spiders...

But I kinda enjoy them.
