    The 4th from last is a Bathynomus giganteus(giant isopod) which isn’t an insects they are crustaceans.

    3rd from the last is a bot fly larva if anyone was wondering what was the point of the picture.

    The 3rd picture from the top was done by a crap ton of small spiders in Lake Tawakoni Park in Texas.

    eh, I got worse stuff crawling around my basement. I don’t mean rats, I mean the bugs that rape and then eat the rats

    Is that last one is eating a bird?

    Pretty sure that’s not right…

    Hey there. The botfly is a nasty fly. The larvae will live inside you and then eat a hole through your skin when it’s ready. There are some pretty sick videos on the net showing people removing the damn things themselves.

    Terminate, terminate with extreme prejudice

    Seriously, some of this shit would require a shotgun to kill
