 What is the bug that freakís you out the most!

I was just wondering what bugs make others squeamish. Mine is the centipede, or his relative the millipedes. What an awful creature. Whatever they are here for is a wonder for me. The ones here in my house have like an arrow on front of their heads. Every morning before showering I shake my towels out to make sure anything on them falls off before I use them. The last time something fell on the floor of the tub from the towel I used for my hair, I could not be sure of what it was cause I wear glasses, but not in shower. So I heard it fall out of towel and could see a black spot in tub with me, Exit stage left! It was a big black hairy wood spider. So whats yours?

OMG that was pretty graphic!
anyway...I know itís not an insect but spiders still freak me out, doesnít matter what size, if I see one near me I freak. Theyíre like the only reason Iíd be afraid of going to Austrailia or New Zealand, theyíre huge and they get in your house (or so Iíve heard).

bot flys are horrible!! you heard of sand wasps? any way the one that freaks me out the most would have to be a hairy dessert scorpion i have on as a pet (itís wild collected). iím fine to look at it but then there are sometimes were i have no choice but to handle it. that thing is vishious! it stung me twice before and KILLED!!!!!!!! it was a painfull burning sencasion it wasnít one that would only hurt if you touched it, itís heart for ages!! non-stop, for 3 whole days!

I canít stand CAmel Crickets. Itís their legs that freak me out. ANd their backs...One cornered me in the basement. I was SCREAMING! They jump too high, to far. Those regular black crickets, I can deal with...Even roaches are not a problem for me, and grubs are awesome, and L love the cicadas, but CAMEL crickets are so freaky! I hate just the tought of them!

And I also like roaches and iím gonna breed loads :)

lol, in the US a daddy long legs is more of a spider (technically not a spider since it only has one body section instead of two, but I donít know what theyíre classified as, definately not a fly though)
I love caterpillars too :)

daddy long legs here have long legs that are very fragile, they fly around with their legs swinging around everywhere and they smash into everything and they are soo anoyin, they look kinda like mosquitos, some (i think males) have a spike on their butt, Iíll see if I can find the real name...

1st of all, those pics were nasty!!!!!!!!

2nd, the only real animal that freaks me out is the cockroach
expecially the large ones!!!!! but any roach over an inch usually
does it.

i dont have a phobia, i understand them, and i like them, but i dont like them
anywhere near me!!!

but i will jump if they catch me off gaurd, or get near me


my friend told me that once, at his old house, all of a sudden, hundreds of roaches came
from every holes in his house!!!!!!!!!!!


i would most certainly die!!!!!!!!!!

I never come on this forum lol
But the only kind of bug that actually freaks me out are mosquitoes...I guess itís not so much them itís mostly the fear of getting parasites from them...plus theyíre just annoying lol.

I couldnít agree with you more! I actually have a terrible phobia of things living in my body...ugh that show on Animal Planet, "Eaten Alive", I really shouldnít watch it but I do and Iím so scared to travel anywhere! Every time my mom makes steak if itís even a little weird looking, or rare, I put it in the microwave until itís a brick lol. My cat (RIP Kiki) threw up some kind of tape worm one time...I was FREAKING out because I shared food with her and I was so worried that I had one too. I got so sick when I saw that. I couldnít even look at the spot she threw up in for days. I told my mom to burn the tapeworm but she just laughed lol. And that bot fly...Iíve never seen one in someoneís EYE! Iíd probably freak out and gouge out my eye before I even got to a doctor knowing that something like that was in there...ehhh now Iíve got goose bumps lol. I was in at work a couple weeks ago, itís an animal farm/petting zoo, and I went to the bathroom...darn honey bucket...but anyway on the floor I notice a bug crawling and I thought it was this one kind of beetle that I like that shows up every year...got a closer look...it was a tic...Iím not one to kill bugs for no reason especially if theyíre outside (I put spiders in my room, they kill the mosquitoes so I donít have to) but come on...a tic in the bathroom! I killed it...now Iím just going on and on lol

I once had a stray cat that Iíd just taken in throw up live, sqirming worms, and that was pretty thoroughly horrible to see. Some of it is just the sympathy factor, but some of it was just flatout horror.

I used to have a thing about spiders, although I know I didnít always because I remember catching them by hand for anoles when I was litle, and Iíve never been bitten by one, but at some point I started not wanting them on me. Then one day I was reading a book and a spider crawled on it and without even thinking I just moved it and kept reading, then realized Iíd forgotten to be afraid. Nowadays Iíll think twice if it might be big enough to bite me, but thatís not squeamishness, thatís just preferring not to be bitten.

Centipedes, Iíve never forgotten to be afraid of, though. Those things I will not touch.

I also wonít touch slugs. In fact, the reason I wonít touch leeches isnít even that Iím afriad theyíll suck my blood. Itís that they look like slugs.

Cockroaches used to freak me out, but when I decided to raise them I made myself handle them and get used to them. Now I think theyíre kind of cool, actually.
