Summertime is the time to get out and enjoy the great Treasure Valley outdoors. For many people, it's the season of camping and taking in all that nature has to offer.

The thing is though, not everything nature offers is good for you... some of it can lead to some serious problems.

It's not always the big, furry ones that'll "getcha"...

For once, we're not talking about Bigfoot AKA Sasquatch. As much as we'd like to say it's aliens out in the woods looking for you, it's not that either - but it does happen.

Rather, we're talking about something a little bit smaller and arguably more terrifying to deal with.

Okay - maybe it's not as bad as being mauled by a bear or having Bigfoot snap you in half before eating you.

But, dealing with the problems these creatures pass onto you can be a real pain to deal with... especially if you like to bring your pet to go camping.

Let's look at some of the most dangerous pests lurking in the woods of Idaho...

Unfortunately, some people take the threat of some animals too seriously or simply want to hunt them down for sport. We're not against hunting but there has to be a fine line.

That leads us to the six Idaho animals that are about to be wiped out... forever.
