These 10 Bugs Found In Alaska Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine

When the average person hears the words ‘bug’ and ‘Alaska’ in the same sentence, they are sent into some sort of frenzy; absentmindedly swatting at the air, and talking about football sized mosquitoes waiting patiently at the door of your tent like a blood sucking hover craft. Luckily, I’m here to tell you that the mosquitoes in Alaska may be a little larger than life but they aren’t all that bad, nor are they the only bugs that will completely and totally creep you out. Beware scrolling through this list, your skin will start crawling (heaven knows mine did as I wrote this) and I guarantee you’ll check your sheets before going to bed tonight.

Which of these bugs bugged you the most? Let me know in the comments.

Motivated by her love for the outdoors she moved to Alaska to attend school and to spend time exploring the last frontier. If she doesn’t have a pen in hand or her nose in a book, she can be found out on a lake or up in the woods around a fire with friends.
