Praying mantis, or basically most Insects if they had lungs and could get bigger, being eaten alive is in my eyes one of the most terrifying things ever.

Not necessarily terrifying, however really fucking creepy. Especially how those fuckers move, they are lightning fast, and their legs do this wicked wave motion.
Oh, and some are actually fairly big, which only adds to the spookiness.

House centipedes are creepy looking but they're really helpful critters to have around. They don't bite humans but do eat all sorts of other bugs and spiders.
>>
>>3649377
really? i squash those fuckers on sight.

spiders are chill tho provided they have a web and dont roam around like some do.
>>
>>3649399
Straight up, creepy as they seem they're some of the best invertebrates you can have in your house. All that speed makes them amazing hunters. If you view termites, ants, cockroaches etc like mice and rats those guys are like cats on steroids. I let spiders be as well because they mostly do the same thing, but in general spiders are trap hunters who wait for something to wander into their domain. Also spiders will bite you on occasion if one's on you while you're sleeping and you startle it or the like and spider venom can cause nasty reactions depending on the type. House centipedes are both more active hunters and even if they wanted to bite you, they can't in the way a spider can. It took me some time to come to terms because they really are freaky as fuck running around like that and I used to squish them too. But now they're my bros and when I see one it's a good sign.
>>
>>3649412
>spiders will bite you on occasion
When I was a kid we had a problem with yellows sac spiders. They would always bite my feet when at my computer and cause some pretty itching swelling.

Like I say tho if they have a web they're chill. I actually had a "pet" spider in my window that I would feed bugs to. Fucker got the size of a two dollar coin.

Same here. This is Shelob, an orb weaver that lived in my kitchen for a good long time. Was a great pal and eater of fruit flies.

A hornet just flew into my apartment today. I'm glad it eventually flew back out.
>>
>>3649439
I was swarmed by hornets this summer who had built a nest in my compost container. Got bit about two dozen times in 30 seconds or so, it was pretty darn unpleasant.
>>
>>3649493
lmao why didnt you run?
>>
>>3649493
I think I would go into shock. Once got bit maybe 8 times by yellow jackets and got hives
>>
>>3649497
Ohh I did. That 30 seconds was me going from my compost to the house. Once one bites though it sends a signal to attack that the others detect and you might not realize, but hornets are pretty fucking fast. I returned an hour later with a kettle of boiling water though so joke's on them in the end.
>>
>>3649498
Yeah it's interesting, a similar thing happened about 15 years ago while out on a hike. Stepped in the wrong spot and got swarmed. Had to run much farther than this last time to get away from them. That time I felt a deep sense of depression and hopelessness that lasted a few hours, it was very surreal. This time I felt almost energized and a wicked anger which was an equally surreal experience. Neither are something I want to replicate, but lone hornets I'm not afraid of and when they fly into our store I'm the one called upon to deal with them cause I just capture safely and let them go outside.

For a human its probably the Great White. I learned a lot about sharks and large female GWs are just awful. Theyre literally monsters.
For all animals probably the Orca or weasel or that eyeball worm on frilled sharks.

Yet the apex predator of humans is the mosquito. Killed more than all our wars and by far any other animal.
>>
>>3648502
I tried this on a nest. I was then swarmed by wasps that were also on fire. They don't die immediately, it takes a few seconds. Do not recommend.
>>3649857
Whats so bad about great whites? They're entirely avoidable. A bull shark can come find you inland where you least expect a shark to be.

Why do people say "bite" when they mean "sting"

Ants bite, spiders bite. Scorpions, wasps, hornets and bees sting.

Though I believe some ants can also sting

I live in tropical Northern Australia and believe me green tree ants are the worst.

Crocodiles? Just stay away from the bodies of water they live in. Sharks ditto. Jellyfish? Wear a stinger suit. Stonefish? Don't step on rocks. Snakes, Dingos? Leave them the fuck alone. Shake spiders out of your boots and otherwise leave them alone too.

But green tree ants are just cunts. They're on almost every piece of vegetation and they're super territorial and aggressive. If a vine dangles onto your car expect to find them swarming it. If you bush against a fern expect to get bitten 7-8 times. I have a mango tree in my front yard and if I mow underneath it they fucking DROP ONTO ME to bite me.
>>
>>3649961
Naw bees and scorpions sting, hornets bite.

Spray some crop dust onto it, just get one of those hand pump sprayers and use that on yer lawn and trees and shit if it's that bad of a problem.
