These 15 Bugs Found In Ohio Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine
You might be surprised to know that Ohio is home to nearly 300 insects, arachnids and other creepy crawlers–and if you’re like me, you’re definitely not OK with the fact that there are spiders in Ohio that can grow beyond the size of an adult’s palm. According to InsectIndentification.org, the following 15 straight up creepy bugs can be found in Ohio. (Meaning, I will be indoors more than I planned to be this summer.)
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
Have you ever encountered any of these terrifying species? If so, share your experiences and photos with us. (Also, know that you are a truly brave soul to have walked away from the encounter alive, and you have my utmost respect.)
