Recently Houston has been ranked highly on two different new lists of the U.S. cities that are in the midst of fighting against the worst problems with mosquitoes. That’s not exactly the kind of notoriety a city is looking for—particularly with mosquito borne diseases on the rise. For a variety of reasons, Texas has a history of mosquito problems; an issue that can have some grave consequences.

Native to Asia, several species of bark beetles have been attacking trees in Texas and other states for several years. Making their way through North America from places like Colorado, Utah, Missouri, and Michigan since the 1990s and early 2000s, these pests are urged on by high temperatures and drought-like circumstances. The presence of bark beetles in Texas and other states could have a significant economic and environmental impact.

Hanging out poolside is a great way to enjoy time with family and friends, get exercise, and keep cool in the heat. But taking care of your swimming pool does require some effort and intentionality. Pests are attracted to water, which means you’ll need to take some extra precautions to keep your pool area enjoyable and free from pests.

This means that in Houston they're not an uncommon occurrence. Scorpions are arachnids, meaning they have eight legs and are a relative to spiders and ticks. Their colors range color from tan to very dark brown but perhaps the most distinct and dangerous part of the scorpion is its tail, which delivers a venomous sting on contact.
