13 Bizarre, Disgusting and Unbelievable Infestations

Well, our skin was crawling while we rounded up these facts, so if you want to delve into this bad boy, get ready for the tingles. Fortunately, you can just read about these from the safety of your… LOOK BEHIND YOU!!! Reading that probably didn’t have the shocking effect that we hoped for, but we work with what we have, okay?! Honestly though, if you think reading about these is chilling, imagine actually being “ankle deep” in creepy crawlies, or have so much of something in your house that you could taste them in the water.

Sometimes, the numbers were so incalculable that these pests were measured in how much land they covered. “Pests” is too cutesy a word for them. Being “pestered” by something seems like it could be remedied with one flick of the wrist. Bulldozers, tactical teams, and even a gang of deputized cats were needed for these 13 bizarre, disgusting, and unbelievable infestations.

It doesn’t get more nightmarish than this.
