Whew, Abilene escapes the list but Dallas is close by. Texas and Florida both were hit hard according to the data. The study also found that July and August were the worst months.

Another great tip is just being informed and prepared. There are several exterminators in the Abilene area that are reviewed and educated on the bugs around these parts. Just a little bit of prevention now can really save some frustration later.
