welcome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, i learned that, but once, i saw a palmmetto bug in the land, that was about 10 years ago though.
Ever notice how in the middle of all that heat and humidity there is not one bug to be found in any of the parks? I brought this up on the Keys to the Kingdom tour and the CM told me they spray every night with "spearmint". According to the CM, it's a natural repellent. He said though it doesn't smell nice like a stick of gum, what they use actually has a bit of an odor and sometimes guests can smell it when the park first opens.

There are plenty of bugs (even crickets) and birds in WDW. However, the nasty ones are usually controlled by natural predators. I have been at WDW many times when there were cautions about mosquitos and the West Nile virus. Haven't heard about the spearmint spray. Personally, I prefer Juicy Fruit.
P.S. Welcome to the boards!!!

Last time I was at WDW (2001) I did see a mosquito, but it was sleepy and about to die, so I don't think it counts! I know its not a bug, but I was surprised (and excited) to see an armadillo in the All Star Movies resort! We went out early to get coffee, and saw it just before we got back to our room. I ran back to get the camera, but it had disappeared into the bushes by the time I got back.
53 days till Florida
57 days till Disney:mickey:
There are three instances when I've seen a bug....
1. Outside the MK Monorail, a huge bee which decided to land on my glasses, thereby freaking me out.
2. A ****roach during Fantasmic, which freaked me out and made me jump on the bench.
3. During my internship (the second time) there was a swarm of little black bugs, I don't know what they were, they were more annoying than anything else, just suffice to say, if you're at WDW, and there's a bunch of little black bugs landing on stuff....don't get any popcorn.....ewwwww
All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.
Who watches the watchmen?
Well, I sure know that it does not count for Fort Wilderness Campground! LOL.
Aren't there bugs inside the Tree of Life at Animal Kingdom?
Sorry... I had to say it!
I have tons of of various Hidden Mickeys. If there's one you want to see, and if I have it, just ask me and I'll be glad to share it with you!
I got stung by a bee coming off the Monorail in Epcot. I swear, i have a curse with getting stung, ive gotten stung a total of 14 times. 10 of which in one day.(dont lay down on a ground hornet nest playing paintball. not fun.)so it didn't bother me much. But it STUNG a little... sorry. had to say it. haha
One night at Old key west in 2004 we could smell it. It wasnt a bad smell but I coudnt stand it after a while.

I've seen a few bees, never anything else. One time there was this cute gecko in Epcot that let me take its picture.

I have noticed that there are bees EVERYWHERE because of the flowers they plant. They should do something about that. I hate bees!
a dream is a wish your heart makes
When I went to Disney World last September, there were millions of bugs EVERYWHERE we went. They were called "Lovebugs". They were an experiment gone wrong kind of thing and they like to come out at that time of year. I could remember them from when I used to live in Orlando. But it was awful. There were so many. You had to constantly swat them off your legs and they'd be dead all over the ground...not too fun.
