Your consignment RV center, PPL Motorhomes has had our fair share of outdoor adventures, but nothing messes up a nice weekend of RVing than being stung by a wasp, bee or other undesirable insect. I went searching the net for a good list of Texas Insects that I could write about and hit a jackpot of information. http://www.texasbassfishing.com/bass-tips/basstips-stinging-bugs.asp
Take your time to familiarize yourself with some of the insects contained on the page. You will certainly see them at almost every RV Park and campground in Texas. For the most part, most of these insects will pretty much leave you alone if you don’t mess around with them. However there are a few species out there that can be fairly aggressive. Especially if you get too close to a new nest that is being constructed. If you have the misfortune of disturbing one, you will be pounced upon as a threat and most likely stung. If you are lucky it will only be once or twice. As if that isn’t painful enough, let’s hope that you aren’t allergic to the venom released into your system. A serious attack will all but shut down the great relaxing weekend you had planned.

Being stung and being allergic to that insect can cause a lot of problems, so if you know you are allergic, it’s better to avoid areas that you know you will encounter wasps, bees or any number of various of stinging insects in Texas. It’s always a good idea to keep some hornet spray in your RV…all of us here at PPL Motorhomes do.
