My wife has a bug phobia...doesn't matter if it hops, flies, crawls or plays the accordian. We are considering a move to Kerrville, are they overrun with bugs like it is here in North Carolina?

I don't know about bugs in NC, but I know Texas is full of them. The humidity helps to increase the population, I believe.

They hop, fly, crawl, dive-bomb (June bugs), and play musical instruments, at least they sound like they do. I'm afraid you and your wife won't escape the bugs in Kerrville.

Your wife sounds like my daughter, funny, but then again, not funny to them. The dances my daughter performs when a bug is present is quite a theatrical show.

Do you live in the mountains of NC or where there is high heat and humidity?

Is there a place that doesn't have bugs?Kerrville certainly isn't bug free.

Yes, but there are places that have lesser than Texas. I'm pretty much used to them now after 28 years except for the blasted mosquitoes, but every now and then, I freak when I see a scorpion or a black widow and those gigantic spiders that like to make a web right near an exit door. I don't know what they're called, but they are big. Tarantulas are not delightful either.

I don't think Texas would be the place for someone who has a phobia about bugs, especially central and south Texas. I just about freaked when I saw the tarantulas and the size of the roaches down there! I double-freaked when I found out the big roaches have an airborne division!

Abilene's not nearly as buggy as Brownsville was but we have our share of big spiders and scorpions here, too.

I was interested at one time in moving to NC, but in the mountains. I'm kind of familiar with some of the counties. Do you mind me asking in which county you live? High humidity I want to avoid if and when I ever leave Texas.
