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.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
