Spotted: Top 5 Strangest Bugs

Strangest Bugs

Here at Clark Exterminating, we know a thing or two about bugs. We wanted to impart some of our knowledge to you and share what we think are the five strangest creepy crawlies across the world. Keep reading to learn more about what’s creeping and crawling around on our planet – and hopefully not in your home.

1. White-Marked Tussock Moth Caterpillar
This caterpillar is indigenous to North America, Southern England, Europe and Taiwan. They are marked by their colorful bodies and hairy backs. If you see one, make sure you resist the temptation to touch it – their hairs are known to cause allergic reactions. 

2. Hercules Beetle
Hercules! Hercules! With the strength to carry up to 850 times its own weight, this beetle undoubtedly lives up to its name. Sometimes, size doesn’t always equal strength.

 

3. Ulysses Butterfly
This beautiful butterfly boasts a striking blue color on its wings. If you want to see this beauty in person, pack your bags and head to the Australian tropical rainforest. There, your best bet is finding them feeding on pollen in Australia’s flower fields. 

4. Globe-bearing Treehopper
This insect is unlike anything you have ever seen before. With spikey balls on the top of its head, it’s hard to believe it actually exists. However, they are indeed living on our planet. Try not to stare too long – we don’t want you having any nightmares. 

5. Mirror Spider
This is the coolest spider we have ever laid eyes on! The mirror-like plates on its abdomen are beautiful and almost make the spider appear to have rhinestones on its back. They may look spotty at first, but give it time and the spider can transform to look like a mirror.We hope you have learned a thing or two about bugs after reading this. There are so many beautiful bugs on the earth and we hope you’ve learned a thing or two now that we’ve shared them with you. We offer FREE in-home estimates, so call us today to set up an appointment if you begin finding bugs in your home and not just online. With Clark Exterminating, the bug stops here!
