List Rules Only arthropods that are actually shuddery-gross... not necessarily scary or dangerous.

I love insects. I do. I fear spiders, but I respect them and try not to let my fear control me when I see one. However, there are bugs that are simply gross. Just really, really gross. Not just ugly (though, definitely ugly), but also nasty in their habits and their behavior. These are the grossest bugs in the world. I know I've left some off the list, so go ahead and add any I've missed. Vote up the nastiest of the nasty.

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.

Cave Spider


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. 

House centipedes actually feed on spiders, bed bugs, termites, cockroaches, silverfish, ants, and other things we hate in our house. Too bad they are almost worse. It turns out that the thing that's the most creepy about them, their gazillion long legs, is how they administer their venom! GAH! So strictly speaking they sting rather than bite and they tend to do it at night. When the centipede is in danger of becoming prey itself, it can detach any legs that have become trapped. 

Of course it can.
