I would recommend avoiding walking through long grasses in Florida.
Reason 1 - CHIGGERS
Chiggers are little red bugs found in grass that dig into your skin. Their itch is ten times that of misquotes.
If you manage to get chiggers go to the drug store and buy clear nail polish place the nail polish on the red welts
Reason 2 - Ticks
Our ticks have Limes Disease now so need to be avoided at all costs
Reason 3 - Snakes
Our short lawn type of grasses often have "Fire ants" these ants sting like heck so most Floridians don't sit in the grass and take caution when walking through grass in their bare feet. I actually even avoid grasses that are fire ant free since the only way yards are fire ant free is by using LOTS of insecticides!
