These aren't the scariest bugs you'll ever happen across, though some might give you a fright. These little dudes are just super gross - the grossest, nastiest bugs ever.
Also known as the Tailless Whip Scorpion, this is neither a spider nor a scorpion. But it sure the @$#%#$% is terrifying.
Shudder. It's like a cross between two of the most creepy things - spiders and centipedes.
Imagine something that has a needle on its face. It injects poison with the needle, and then sucks the liquified victim's insides back in through the same needle. Now imagine that thing is real. Because it is.
Oh jeez. This list is seriously making me gag. Ticks are bad enough, their whole nasty family of bloodsucking disease-carriers... but Cattle Ticks? If any of you have ever spent any time around livestock, you know what I mean. Horses, sheep and cattle... you'll be walking by or maybe grooming a horse and GAAAAHHHH! It's the size of a grape. A GRAPE! and it's all white and giant, and filled with blood.
More blood suckers. And these are in your bed while you sleep.
Most species feed on humans only when other prey are unavailable. Their bites are not usually noticed at the time. The neck and jaw line are particularly favored places to feed.
It usually spends less than 20 minutes in physical contact with its host, and once its full, it will not attempt to feed again until it has either completed a molt or, if an adult, has thoroughly digested the meal.see more on Bed Bug
Despite their name, Jerusalem crickets are not true crickets, nor are they native to Jerusalem. They are in the same family as the Weta, which is why they both look so shiny and fleshy and blaaarrrgh. These nocturnal insects use their strong mandibles to feed primarily on dead organic matter but can also eat other insects. Their highly adapted feet are used for burrowing beneath moist soil to feed on decaying root plants and tubers.
While Jerusalem crickets are not venomous they can emit a foul smell and are capable of inflicting a painful bite. Not to worry, I won't be picking this thing up any time soon. see more on Jerusalem cricket
