Scorpions - yes.
Spiders and snakes - no.
You have to watch out for roaches and waterbugs, also.

Try Arkansas.

I actually think scorpions can be found in all regions of Texas--I could be wrong, though. They're definitely more prevalent the further west you go.

And Arkansas is actually far worse when it comes to snakes and spiders--I've never seen so many spiders in my life as I did in Arkansas.

The question should be are there any places in the ***United States*** free from snakes and spiders. Scorpions aren't everywhere, but you can find snakes even in Canada.

Don't hold your breath...I've lived all over the state for 41 years from Tyler to Texarkana to Victoria/Beeville to Austin and each area has bugs and critters.
