Within this great state of Montana, there are some of the most beautiful sites in the world. However, right in the middle of our beautiful background, there is a virtual breeding ground for insects and arachnids. Hiding in the shadows our mountains and terrain are some extremely creepy and dangerous bugs. Making contact with one of these insects or arachnids can cause severe or just straight scary sicknesses.

Not only are the yellow and black markings on this spider scary, but the fact that the females can become ginormous can leave any person running for the hills.

The deadliest spider in North America, enough said. The Black Widow’s bite is extremely dangerous and can be lethal to children or the elderly. Also, they are extremely common in Western and South-Eastern Montana.

6. Western Conifer Seed Bug
The Western Conifer Seed Bug might not be deadly in anyway. However, they do have the power to stink away a skunk.
7. Hobo Spider
These protective spiders will only bite if they are provoked, which usually happens in dark secluded areas of your dwelling or surrounding areas. Their webs can be identified as horizontal funnel shaped. Steer clear of this creepy crawler.
