Florida Residence... please settle a BUG disagreement.
This may give people the creeps, but I need help settling a disagreement. Even as I am typing I am getting the creeps.
I grew up in Florida in the panhandle (Fort Walton Beach area) and our house was crawling with Palmentto Bugs (if you don't know what these are don't Google unless you can handle creepy things). To this day both my brother and I have nightmares from them. At times when I visited my Grandmother in St. Petersburg there would be a few large ones in her condo.
I have been thinking about moving to Florida and my mom says that anywhere I go there will be these bugs and I will hate it. I tell her I can't believe people would put up with them and they can't be in every house. I mean if there were everywhere how come I've never seen one at WDW??
So my question is who is right? Are Palmentto bugs really in every house in Florida? Are some areas worse than others? Is inland more bug free than the coast? Help me out here please! I might have to head to Florida (St. Pete) next month and I need to prepare myself.
