The best places are all hot and dry.

Places I've lived where there are fewer pests:

Yuma AZ.......lizards, lot's of lizards...but they're the cute little Anole lizards mostly
Las Vegas NV.........Haven't seen but a couple of flies, two spiders and a few crickets in almost two years.
El Paso TX......Scorpions and tarantulas
Denver CO......spiders spiders spiders!

I would say Florida has the most pests but if I name those posters I would probably get an infraction from the mods.

Minnesota doesn't have any pests to speak of...except for wood ticks and of course mosquitos and horse flies and black flies and gnats. There are also box-elder bugs and lady bugs that can be a nusiance when they crawl all over your house. The leeches can be unpleasant in certain lakes and now we have brain-eating amoebas, zebra mussels and flying carp too. Wasps and hornets can be a pain if they take a liking to your eaves. Coyotes are known to carry off small pets and babies and now it appears that mountain lions, bears and wolves are expanding their territory resulting in more and more interactions with people. But other than those things....it's not like we have giant snakes taking over the state, like some states <cough...Florida...cough> that will remain nameless.

You don't have 3.5 MILLION tourists each month either! Let's see, 40 million visitors each year and two events in fifteen years... All involving criminals from CA...


Still though, our crime rate for MURDERS is 5.6 to your 8.3 in Minneapolis....

Guys from Tennessee? About 3/4 of this dude's posts are obvious jokes, like the one you got so angry about above. It's not like it was laid on lightly, either.
