Serious poll.

I sleep in a ground floor bedroom and have had numerous "creepy crawlies" get into my bed when I was asleep.

Back in 2010 I felt an itching on my back and when I put my hand on it I feel this crunchy feeling thing there, which turned out to be a wasp. It stung me on my back at 3AM. Not the nicest thing to wake up to.

A few months later I felt an itch on my leg and looking in my bed there was this spider I was sharing it with. I batted it away from my bed but unfortunately some of its legs broke off in my bed and I had to clean it up.

Then more recently I woke up to see this black slug crawling insidiously towards me along my bed one morning. So I managed to transfer it onto my book and removed it from the premises.

So out of those three, if you had to wake up to any of these in your bed, which would it be?

I thought you were going to ask about a "coyote" or cougar sort of woman. :-)

I've woken up with my share of 'rats" and "wolves", but I would take the slug. Slugs are benign.

Spider. We have no native dangerous spiders where I am.

The slug wouldn't bother me at all. Between the bee and the spider, I'd take a sting over fangs. I can't stand the thought of a spider biting me.

I'd take the slug, but I would freak out to find all 3 of those things in my bed. You should remove any pets and plants you have and set off a bug bomb in your apt./home and hopefully get rid of some of these things.
