They serve as predators for other invasive species, thus instilling the balance needed to maintain our way of life… Creepy as they may be, we’ve got to appreciate their role in our eco-system. Here are some native to Michigan that make us freak out when we see them.

So what do you think? Have you spotted any of these bugs around Michigan? Are there any that make your skin crawl that we didn’t mention? Let us know!
