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

I’ll get this out of the way right away: bugs are a very important part of every ecosystem. They might be pesky and sometimes harmful, but they all have their place in the interconnected web of life.

Having said that, I’ll also say that I’m a little freaked out by bugs. Last week I had my entire household running around trying to catch some big, scary flying thing while I cowered in the corner. (We catch and then release outside because, although I really don’t like them, I also don’t like killing them unless they’re about to kill me.)

Most of the bugs I personally freak out about are completely harmless, but there are some to be legitimately scared of. If you’re a farmer or gardener, there’s a whole catalog of creepy crawlies to watch out for – but these 10 bugs are worthy of a little caution no matter who you are or what you do.

I don’t know about you, but looking at pictures of bugs always makes me think I can feel them crawling on me. If you’ll excuse me, I’m off to take a few dozen showers to wash the creepy-crawly feeling away. Let us know in the comments: which Nebraska bugs are you afraid of?
