Now that the weather is cooler and summer is officially in the rear view mirror most Texans are praying that the summer bugs are gone for a while too. We all know that living in the state of Texas means that we will be dealing with bugs, but after dealing with them for months you just get tired of the bug bites and doing the occasional ant dance. While bugs are just part of life here in Texas there is a new study showing us how bad it is, as three of the top five most bug infested cities in the country are here in the lone star state. 

Dealing with bugs is annoying, but dealing with them in Texas is worse than in any other state and there is now research to back this up. According to Thumbtack three out of the top five buggiest cities in the country are all in Texas. There was one other city that cracked the top fifteen but to have that many cities that have that many bugs is not exactly something that we love to talk about, even though it’s just part of living here.
