These 10 Insects Found In North Dakota Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine
Alright, let me just come out and say it: I am not a fan of bugs. I can handle all the other common fears – rodents, snakes, heights, blood – that’s all well and good to me. Insects, however, will send me shrieking and sprinting in the opposite direction. Even butterflies make me a little anxious if they get too close. Knowing these bugs are found in my own state wasn’t exactly the best news, but I’m just glad it’s still winter so I can rest assured that all of these creepy crawlers are probably frozen or hibernating…for now.
I hope this article is as fun for you to read as it was for me to research. Which means that it will make you check your sheets before you go to bed tonight. Twice. Not saying that I did that or anything, but I may have done that. I wish I didn’t know that these bugs could be near me, but if you’re brave enough then here you go – 10 insects that can be found in the state of North Dakota.
