Canada:
Horse Flies (real motherfuckers). A bit bigger than a common house fly, they just bite.


Sqeetors


Black Flies (mostly in the northern parts, say Northern Ontario, where they are crazy in the bush)


Just small spiders here, the biggest is maybe a couple inches long at the most. None are venomous. Things like:



The creepiest insect is the centipede, which aren't big, but they are really fast and always under stuff.

Animals you might see a deer, or a ribbon snake/garter snake (two different snakes but look very similar). I believe there is only one venomous snake here in Ontario, but it is rare; Massasauga Rattlesnake.




I live in a city, so I mostly see cats and dogs owned by people, various birds, maybe a raccoon or a skunk occasionally. I saw a red fox in my neighbourhood once, that was cool. Bears are rare in the city, but I have heard of sightings. If you go further north and in the bush you might see a Lynx or a Bobcat, but they are pretty stealthy.







Canada is pretty awesome :)
I need to move to Vancouver Island though, so I don't have to deal with god dang mosquitoes anymore!

Canada here.

For bugs, just flies, spiders (small thankfully), bees, etc.

Real pests tend to be skunks (my dog has been sprayed), racoons (garbage bags torn up constantly) and goddamn deer (always a few collisions every year in my city).

Canada here too.

Nothing as intimidating as what was described above except for the mosquitoes and fruit flies, though during summer my neighbourhood is sometimes faced with a plague of junebugs that like to infiltrate houses through chimneys and make themselves at home. I swear one year we had some the size of my fist.

I did hear an interesting story the other day about several different colours of squirrel. I only ever see black squirrels here, and they are an extremely common sight (I once saw 6 in the same yard), but a long time ago in the UK, the dominant breed was the red squirrel. Gray squirrels were accidentally imported there from the American continent, and they began to slowly drive the reds out due to being stronger as well as immune to various diseases they carried that reds were not. Years later, black squirrels were brought in, even more disease-resistant and vicious than gray squirrels, and the process repeated itself.

In the UK today, a gray squirrel is a rare sight, and a red even more so. Having lived with them all my life and having never even seen grays or reds, I never knew until now that Canadian squirrels are actually the meanest little buggers around. Probably because I've never had one attack me, but their energy is incredible, even propelling them up sheer walls of brick when they are chased.

How I know this story:

North Eastern United States, "Stink Bugs".

Apparently an invasive species that has exploded and thrived in recent years, and has invaded peoples homes into the hundreds (if not more).

They're relatively flat, green, grey, or dark brown bettle looking bugs (sometimes called "shield bugs") that are incredibly stupid as they will buzz around very loudly in random, aimless patterns and will consistently run into just about anything as a result, including YOU. YES YOU, SITTING AT YOUR COMPUTER MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS, but then suddenly, THWAP, a hard shelled bettles runs into the side of your face as fast as possible and lands in your lap, as you jump up using only the power of your frightened buttocks and thrust out of your chair and attempt to swipe off whatever it was that landed on you.

And they are currently hibernating, but since there are so many, they will very frequently come out in groups of two during the dead of winter likely looking for their food or new shelter. And you'll know if you have a small gap anywhere in your house, because in the summer you will find AT LEAST 4-6 of the fuckers every day until you make sure your house is properly sealed.

They don't really hurt people, at least there's no documented cases I know of, but they are very loud and when frightened they leak a disgusting, musty smell that makes me feel naseous. And killing them will almost always result in them musking, which can sometimes attract more.

Fun story, the one large window in my room is facing directly towards the morning sun, and is incredibly bright, so I had two layers of curtains over them to keep the sun out as much as possible. Worked fine until I noticed that more and more of the bastard bugs kept appearing around that window in particular. Yeah, turns out they were hibernating in between the curtains in the fucking dozens. Fun fact: My bed lays right up against that curtain.

I tore down the curtains, rolled them up, and literally tossed them out of the window so fast.

Californian here.

Thankfully we don't have much in the way of insects, mostly just small flies and bees. Nothing dangerous, just kind of annoying.

We do have some poisonous snakes in the area, including rattle snakes and coral snakes. Coral snakes don't attack people very often, but if you do get bit by one it's a HUGE issue. The US doesn't actually stock coral snake antivenin anymore and hasn't since like 2010, and a coral snake bite will paralyze your lungs meaning you will die if you don't go to a hospital and get put on a breathing apparatus.

I also live next to a fairly large nature preserve area so we get tons of coyotes, and sometimes mountain lions. The coyotes can be heard practically every night. I'm used to it but sometimes people who visit my house can't sleep because of all the howling and yelping.

Coyotes are also known for killing pets in my neighborhood. Basically any time there's a "missing pet" poster up it means coyotes probably already got them. A while back a one of my neighbors was walking her tiny dog (like a miniature poodle or something) and a coyote jumped out of some bushes, grabbed the dog, yanked the leash away from the owner and took off with it. You often see people carrying sticks, golf clubs, or small bats while walking their dogs at night.

Canada here. We dont have really much dangerous creature. poisonous critters seems to like warm temperature, and everything that should be dangerous seems to die in freezing temperature. so yay !

but, we do have mosquitos. apparently they survive winter. starting in april-may we get the little pesty mosquito that swarm you in forest and drain you from your blood to something we call the deer fly or black fly that pretty much eat a part of you skin instead of just putting a needle in your skin. the mosquito season goes until september or so.

...Wolf Spiders happen to be just big enough that that would just piss them off, so I try to catch them and throw them over the fence instead...
I have this image in mind where your neighbor is barbecuing, minding his own business, when a wolf spider flies over a wooden fence and lands on his head.

.

We have tons of stupid people Florida, does that count? These are the same idiots who buy stuff like Burmese Pythons and then release them into the Everglades when they no longer want to take care of them. I'm pretty sure the local government is still paying for each non-native snake killed.

We also have random, giant iguanas running around. Those are probably mostly escapees, but possibly released when their owners grow tired of caring for them. Iguanas run away when you're near them, which is fairly rare since nobody walks anymore, but when you're near they skedaddle, making a wild ruckus. It's quite startling when you turn around and see nothing. Seeing nothing is better than being confronted by a loose dog though.

Every once in a while you'll also catch a glimpse of beautiful, exotic birds. They escaped from a local zoo when we were hit by a massive hurricane, decades ago. It's nice to see them flourishing.

Oh right, and this is the cockroach capital apparently. And we have a ton of mosquitoes. Like ten mosquitoes for every bad driver, so around 50 billion.

Where I live now we get a lot of possums. Not that they're a threat or anything, but I often have to resist the urge to pat them. Some of the local ones are sufficiently accustomed to people that they'll let you get within arm's reach...
We also have possum down here, but every time I see one it's like sick or something. Wheezing like an 80-year old that smokes two packs a day and crawling in a daze like a B-movie monster.

Regarding coral snakes, in the Boy Scouts we had to memorize this poem which would allow you to recognize the difference between a deadly coral snake and the harmless king snake. You can see the difference here [http://www.ict4us.com/r.kuijt/en_snake.htm].

-OR- you could just use common sense and stay away from anything that looks like a coral snake instead of standing around like a moron, trying to remember some stupid poem that does more harm than good.

On the down side, petting them is a terrible idea. They are... surprisingly vicious.)
I know! That's what makes it so hard. There's something cute and furry sitting on a fence two feet away twitching its adorable little nose at me and I can't pat it because I know that it's still a wild animal and will probably bite the shit out of me.

It's a cruel world.
I remember a friend of mine trying to pick one up (in not a totally sober state).

The possum was so cute and friendly, eating out of his hand, so he tried to pick it up.
The possum grabbed him by the arm with all 4 sets of claws and started biting him.
My friend was screaming and flailing his arm about, with the possum still attached, for a good 30 sec.
Laughed? We nearly shat!(We had not laughed so much since Grandma died. Or Auntie Mabel caught her left tit in the mangle.)

So I guess maybe mosquitoes? Or cats ,you know if you are allergic against them.
Oh and birds, nothing is more annoying than going to sleep at 5 AM after a productive night of gaming and have one of those shits start singing right next to your window. If only you could understand my pain and suffering.
Oh man, I can so related to the birds so I understand your pain.

Well we've got wolf spiders, brown recluse spiders, black widows, stink bugs, and fire ants here for insect pests.

Otherwise, deer. Lots of deer. Like, run out in the middle of the road and hit your car deer. No, not you hit them, they hit you. And they die because they hit you so hard.

We've the occasional raccoon, feral cats, the odd bobcat, and if you go a bit further south a rattlesnake here and there. Oh, Garters. Lots of garter snakes. They're not as much a pest as they do clear out other pests but it's a bit surprising to accidentally run into a nest or winter den and have to call animal control to get out dozens of 'em.

Whoah dejavu. So where in the midwest are ya? We have some amusement parks here and whenever they have their late nights, usually around the 4th, the garter snakes like to sleep on the walkways in between attractions. Kinda makes your heart skip an extra beat until you see they're the harmless variety.

Haha, that happens at one of our amusement parks whenever we do the Halloween special attraction. Oh do you get those wolf spiders with the leg span just bigger than a quarter that try to be intimidating? We used to have dozens of them at the place I worked and every night they'd stop in front of us when we went outside then raise their front legs like "Come at me, bro!". So we stepped on them or ran them over with the lift. Little shits.

Our wolf spiders don't do that often, but our tarantulas try that when approached by a person. But you really have to piss them off first, like when I tried to scoot one across the road one summer day. He reared up and I just flipped his belly and knocked him on his ass. They really are just all show, and I don't like squishing things big enough to have a visibly active personality, not if they're nonpoisonous. Occasionally there's the rather finniky house spider that pops up in my room. One made a home under my monitor last spring and would dart at my hand while I was gaming.

Nothing really serious here in the UK, though after several bad stings as a child (including one on the eyelid) I have a massive phobia of wasps, so seeing them buzzing around terrifies me.

On the upside, we get a lot of grasshoppers in summer, and I just adore those.

Mosquitos, mosquitos, mosquitos. Got dengue in 2014, that was fun. No really, mild case. Just got itchy for a bit and smelled like shit after not bathing for a couple of days. What was horrible is that I have had relatives die to the thing, and when I got it, literally my whole other family got it. Even the one who was living away from home somehow.

Stray dogs and cats are a thing too I guess, though I haven't been threatened by a dog in a while, and that one was a pet.

Ants are annoying too, at one point in the summer they were hungry enough my clothes. I put on a shirt a dozen times only to be bitten by those little fuckers.

There's not really much that will certainly kill you beside a few snakes (Rattlesnakes, coral snakes and water moccasins). We have alligators that get into backyard pools, but they won't kill you unless you do something stupid. Black widow spiders will mess you up.

It doesn't snow so the bugs don't die, they just grow to ridiculous sizes.
Of those we have basically every kind of bloodsucking bug you can think of, ridiculous numbers of mosquitoes, fleas and I've been hearing of a lot more bed bug infestations (if you want to be paranoid for the rest of your life, go through a bed bug infestation).

Of the non blood sucking but annoying variety, We have some fairly big spiders but nothing compared to Australia. We have big 2.5in flying cockroaches and 5in grasshoppers


There are love bugs. They do nothing but have sex for three months straight in massive swarms and then die. Their little bodies will take the paint off your car.

Also fire ants and and stinging insects galore, wasps, yellow jackets, bees.

We also get the occasional iguana and python that someone purchased, realized it's growing too large and decided to release into the wild... and then they found love and became an invasive species.

I live in Seattle, and we have a lot of spiders around here, but not the dangerous kind, just ugly ones. I had an exterminator come when I moved into my new place, because there was a bit of an infestation, but since then I've hardly seen any. I don't know about snakes or anything here, but I think this place is fairly light on pests compared to Texas and Pennsylvania, which has rabies and ticks that carry Lyme's Disease.

So I think I'm pretty lucky! There is that pesky gigantic volcano nearby, though...

The advantage of living in the north is that pesky insects disappear for the whole winter (at least outside). Only when I get an ants infestation, things get bothersome (no, you cannot use my game disc cases as you food storage or my laptop as your home!). On summer just the small innocuous spiders outside the window or the occasional bees, wasps or mosquitoes (as long as the hive isn't just outside the house or there is an alert of some tropical virus). If any spider dares to enter, I promptly deal with it with a shoe.
