    I'm only afraid of wasps and caterpillars.  Caterpillars are so ugly.  I don't care what they turn into later.  And cicadas, oh yeah.  They are ugly AND they leave their husks like monster skins on the walls. I leave the sliding glass door open so my...

    Home Depot Parking Lot.....And The Creepy Crawler

    I was at Home Depot with my parents one day. I think I was around 16 years old. We were in the plants section of Home Depot outside in the Green House. We made our purchase I dont remember what we ended up buying. However, as I was walking back to the car, little did I know that...

    Cicada's scare the the living **** out of me. They're big, flying dumb things with alien eyes that like to buzz around you. They're harmless but scary as hell. It's almost the same with Carpender Bee's.

    I'm Not That Terrible, But Rachel Still Makes Fun of Me

    Of course, Rachel has cockroaches in her house.  I'm not so much terrified of bugs and insects as I am of infectious disease.  Bugs and insects happen to be a very popular carrier for such things.  In fact, fleas were responsible for bubonic plage, a disease that...

    Ones That Make Webs Or Fly

    I am scared of spiders, bees, and ladybugs the most.  We have a lot of these animals in the South so I like having a Southern gentleman with a nice fly swatter available when I find these things in the house.  I still call my ex husband to come get rid of them for me...

    Reptiles As Well....

    I was walking to my car about to go in when all of a sudden a lizard jumps towards me. Thank God it missed me and landed on the driver side of my car. I jumped away from the lizard and went around the other way through the passenger door to climb into the drivers seat. As I was...

    Creepy Crawlies

    I would honestly sit through a horror film and have countless sleepless nights then be anywhere near a bug of any sort. I absolutely hate cockroaches, not just hate, but am super afraid. I still remember when I was around 7, my brother made me pick up a dead moth on the floor...

    Stupid Fear Of Bugs!!

    So this story may seem stupid to some readers who are not afraid of insects/bugs, and may even sound stupid to some people who are afraid of bugs, but not to people who are deathly afraid of any insects or bugs I don't think. Well I was on my way home from a piano lesson, and...

    I don't like most insects and bugs, however there are some that I can deal with.  Ladybugs (as long as there isn't like 50 of them in one spot) and inchworms I can be cool with.  Spiders are my biggest fear.  I'm dating someone who got bit by a Black Widow spider...
