The worst places I've lived for bugs would be Northern Michigan, and the swamps of Coastal Georgia, the Chesapeake region might be a close third. Washington State is a piece of cake in this regard. I used to stay in the swamp when I was working at St Mary's building the Sub base, that was like living hell. Plus 20+ foot alligators.
Bugs doing kamikaze in your eyes, your ears, your nose. God forbid you even open your mouth. It was horrible.
