Car sized praying mantises. Cat sized ants. Wasps and bees the size of big electrical appliances.

One of my high school maths teachers once told me that bug's can't get bigger due to their exoskeletons, they can't support as much weight as internal skeletons when scaled up or something. Thank goodness.
It's more to do with oxygen diffusing into the interior of the arthropod. Gigantic insects and arachnids only flourished when oxygen levels were higher in prehistory.
I don't normally mind insects or spiders but that thing gives me the creeps.
still no match for beyonce though, i'd wager

I'm sure I read somewhere about six-foot-long centipedes (and not just in Naked Lunch).
