Whats the scariest/grosest insect you have found in your house?*ETA*

Posted by   + Show Post

 OMG you all are giving me the hebe-jeebies! I feel like there are bugs on me lol. but these stories are hilarious. Keep them coming


Before i moved out of my parents house, I was doing laundry one day, I left a pile of clothes on my bed for like an hour. this was after my little one was born, she was only a month at the time, well i have my mom watching her, and I walk in my room to take care of our laundry when i move a shirt and this huge as spider jumps out and runs across my bed! I ran out of the room and we slept in the living room that night. Then the next day I see the same damn spider in the kitchen. It was a hobo spider!

apparently its a reletive of the wolf spider. ick :P

Then about a year before that, I was in my bed which was pushed up against the wall, I had a bamboo scroll hanging on the wall. I feel the bed and what i thought were crumbs weren't crumbs. I look up on the wall and see brown stuff on it..I lift up the scroll and whats behind it? a fucking hole with termites coming out of it! I screamed, ran out of the room and was so freaked out i called dh (we were dating at the time) and asked if i could stay at his place lol

THEN when we moved into this house we always had beetles all over the place. we found out they were carpet bugs. wtf? i haven't had much luck with bugs, they are always around me haha.

What have you found in your house?

 OMG that was hillairous to read. sounds like my dd!

Quoting inspain:

Whip scorpion.  It was fricking HUGE.  It was in the laundry room.  I fully intended to kill it by slamming it with a full bottle of bleach, but DD1 walked in, freaked out about the possible murder of an "innocent" bug and insisted I trot the nasty thing out to the park, in the dark, in my pjs.  And I did.  And it ran up my hand.  And I screamed like a raving lunatic.  And it jumped off and ran into the night.  And I kept screaming.  And the security guard ran over to see what was wrong and my DH told him I was crazy and left me in the park and I walked back home and washed my arm with scalding water.  I hope never to see another one, ever, as long as I live.  

The maid had no problem with the whip scorpion.  It was the three foot snake behind the dryer that freaked her out.  She threatened to quit when DD begged to keep it.  LOL.

 ugh one morning i had gotten dressed for school, and I had layed my clothes out at night, well i'm going to the bathroom and I felt something on me,a nd i felt a pinch. I threw off all of my clothes bra underwear all of it and saw a earwig come crawling out of my  shirt. I was so pissed, lol from then on i just left my shit in the closet

 I am slowly but surely becoming more accepting of them. My dh and I were taking a shower together one night and i was in the water when dh's eyes open wide and he goes "uh" and moves me behind him.  When i saw what he was looking at i flipped. There was a tiny jumping spider hanging next to my ear. Dh scooped it up and put it on the counter. I finished my shower, at at a distance, watched it on the counter, cleaning its self and it chilled in our bathroom for about 3 days untill i told dh we needed to put it outside.

Quoting AimSnapHolz:

I think spiders are cool. I think the grossest one I've ever found was when we had bedbugs. Thankfully we got lucky and they were easy to get rid of.

If I ever found a cockroach or a maggot inside my house, though, I'd probably shoot myself. I can't stand to even think about those things.

 I love crickets. they are so cute :} its the locusts that i freak a little at. one year at hs we had a massive amount of locusts on campus and i swear like every 30 seconds you could hear a girl scream lol it was pretty funny. I think the reason they were there was that there was construction going on near the school.

Quoting LadyFreeRider:

I finally found a pic. This one is a cave cricket. What was in my house looked like this one but it was grey and black and the body was kind of flatter and a little longer.
