Yeah, I live in Sugar Land, just outside of Houston. I know what you mean about the tree roaches and the spiders that come in when it's hot. We have 3 dogs and 4 cats, (all inside animals). They never stay out in the back yard unless we're out there. Needless to say I never go barefoot in the yard. Even tho everyone's been treated for parasites, the thought of pinworms makes me keep my shoes on.
