With eight eyes, eight legs, and all sorts of scary, the giant huntsman spider can reach a leg span of about 10-12 inches.

If you find one of these guys in your bed, you probably have a much bigger problem, since there is likely an entire hive in your house. These bees are insanely aggressive and will attempt to kill anything that they want to.

3.) Tsetse Fly

This fly is a known carrier of the “sleeping sickness,” which is fatal to humans. Luckily, if it’s caught early enough, it can be treated with modern medicine.

4.) Japanese Mountain Leeches

What isn’t there to fear about this leech? It can live comfortably on dry land, is pretty large, and wants to suck your blood.

5.) Milkweed Grasshopper

If you find one of these around your house, do your best to keep it calm. When this bug feels threatened, it shoots out toxic liquids from its legs.

6.) Thorny Devil Stick Insect

This creepy crawly can grow up to 12 inches, which would certainly put a scare in you if you saw it in bed.

9.) American Cockroach

The worst part about these bugs is that if you see one, there are thousands of other ones to follow. No one wants that.

10.) Japanese Giant Crab

With the largest leg span of any arthropod, the Japanese giant crab is a disturbingly big. It reaches up to 12 feet and weighs up to 42 pounds. (Okay, so maybe you’ll never find this one in your own house.)

11.) Asian Giant Hornet

This is the world’s largest hornet. As you can imagine, this wasp has a particularly painful sting described as a “hot nail being driven through the skin.”

12.) Hercules Beetle

This beetle can lift up to 850 times its body weight. Yes, I think Hercules is a good name for it.

13.) Giant African Land Snail

The creature is considered to be the most damaging snail in the world because it consumes at least 500 different types of plants. It’s a slimy, gelatinous, slider that can reach up to 8 inches in length and 4 inches in diameter.

14.) Human Botfly

The Human Botfly is known for laying eggs within people’s skin. That’s not what you’d call a good house guest.

15.) Bullet Ant

The Bullet Ant has a bite so fierce that survivors of it say it feels like they were shot. You don’t want this thing anywhere near you.

16.) Giant Water Bug

These guys are known to have quite a painful bite. Legend has it that they eat water snakes and baby turtles.

18.) Mosquito

These guys are known carriers of many diseases, and are quite common. Most people have encounters with them through their lives. Plus, their bites itch a lot.

19.) Camel Spider

The Camel Spider, which isn’t even technically a spider, could give anyone nightmares. It has 10 legs, can grow to about 6 inches, and has jaws that weigh around 1/3 their body mass.

20.) Brazilian Wandering Spider

Better hope this thing doesn’t “wander” into your house. This is the world’s most venomous spider.

21.) Giant Weta

This enormous grasshopper is endemic to New Zealand and can grow anywhere between 4 inches to 8 inches, depending on the species.

22.) Giant Isopod

I suppose people don’t like insects that have “giant” in their name. While most Isopods are generally pretty small, a Giant Isopod can grow to nightmarish sizes.

23.) House Centipede

This 15 legged nightmare is harmless to humans, but would certainly send chills up a person’s spine if you felt it crawling up your leg.

24.) Black Widow Spider

I think everyone knows about the dangerous Black Widow. They’re small but extremely venomous, and could potentially kill you.

25.) Bed Bugs

You certainly don’t want Bed Bugs in your bed. They feed on your blood and reproduce faster than you imagine (200-250 eggs in 6-10 days).
