These 10 Bugs Found In New Jersey Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine

All you entomologists out there will love this list! For those of you who don’t know, (I didn’t, until writing this.) an entomologist is someone who studies bugs. New Jersey has plenty of bugs for your viewing pleasure – lucky us. We’ve got nearly 300 different species of creepy-crawlies making their way around our state. This list features ten of the creepiest. If you don’t like bugs, read this anyway; know your enemy.

Is your skin crawling yet? These insects and arachnids are creeping me out! I’m going to go put on some bug spray; feel free to share your New Jersey bug photos in the comments below.
