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

There’s a tendency for people to think that everything in Arizona will kill you, insects and arachnids included. The truth is most are relatively harmless and won’t attempt to injure you unless provoked. Maybe that sentiment says something about Arizonans as well.

Here is a short list of some tiny (and not-so-tiny) critters you may find wandering around your house or out on the trail hunting for their next meal. Instead of immediately squishing that spider, try to capture it with a cup and relocate to a place a little more suitable.

What other kinds of multi-legged creatures have you seen creeping near your home? Tell us about them in the comments below!
