Regional Pests

It's funny how much little details of daily life differ from region to region. We once lived in a locale where scorpions were an issue in the home: every time we put our shoes on, it was vital to check and be sure a scorpion wasn't lurking inside.

These little differences can have quite an impact on day-to-day routines, making moving to or visiting a new place quite "exotic". Have you lived/ do you live in a place with particular pests that form your daily habits? Please share your story below!
