Warming: ’25 Creeping Crawling Creatures You’d Hate To Find In Your Bed’ will keep you up, scared! It’s 2 AM. You are snuggled in your bed within your soft fluffy comforter when suddenly you feel something. It seems to be “walking” on your legs, making it’s way towards your chest. In a panic, you remove your comforter only to have your worst fears confirmed. There it is, staring back at you, rubbing its creepy forelimbs, seemingly delighted it has ruined your night (and possibly your life) forever. What could it be? If I had to take a guess, I would say it’s one of these 25 Creeping Crawling Creatures You’d Hate To Find In Your Bed.

House Centipede

Scutigera coleoptrata, also known as the house centipede is typically a yellowish-grey centipede with up to 15 pairs of legs. It kills and eats other arthropods such as insects and arachnids, but it’s typically harmless to humans. (Though, I would still not want to wake up at 2 am with this thing crawling up my leg!)

Giant Centipede

Talking about centipedes, check out this guy. Also known as the Amazonian giant centipede, this thing can grow up to 30 cm (12 inches) and preys on arthropods, amphibians, reptiles, and even other mammals. Their venom can be lethal to small animals and causes swelling, chills, fever, and weakness to humans.

Asian Giant Hornet

The world’s largest hornet, the Asian Giant Hornet is about 50mm (2 in) long, has a wingspan of about 76mm (3 in) and sports a massive stinger of about 6 mm (0.24 in). As you can imagine, this wasp has a particularly painful sting described as a hot nail being driven through the skin. In Japan, it’s responsible for around 30 to 40 human deaths annually. This is a bug that you’d not only not want in your bed, but not anywhere near your house, period.

Giant Water Bug

Giant Water Bugs measure about 4.75 in (12 cm) long and are considered to be fierce predators, due to some bugs being known to even eat baby turtles and water snakes. Their bite is also considered to be one of the most painful bites that can be inflicted by any insect.

This enormous grasshopper is native to New Zealand and can grow anywhere between 10 cm (4 in) to 20 cm (8 in) depending on the species. This grasshopper is actually one of the largest insects in the world, and also one of the heaviest, weighing up to 2.5oz. If you find one of these in your bed, I’d just let them keep the entire bed.
