ew o_o

I would have.

The first time I went out of the country was to Nicaragua - they have huge bugs. I'd heard rumors of giant tarantulas hiding in the bathrooms, so the first night when I went to take a shower and saw something large and dark dart across the wall I screamed bloody murder. But twas only a gecko. Though they took getting used to as well. . .

Yikes! That would freak me out too!
Geckos are cute, but a little weird when they sit on the wall and watch you pee.

I'm glad there weren't any giant bugs to worry about in East Africa although I did witness a wrestling match between a scorpion and a gecko. I also encountered a green mamba wriggling along a low ceiling (I left the hut very quickly).

At least it wasn't a black mamba?

I have night terrors about spiders. I wouldn't go to a country where there are large bugs because I would never be able to relax.

Although the flying ones don't bother me as much as the crawly ones.

All of them freak me out. I almost didn't travel because of the bugs, but i did. And you know, I only saw one Tarantula - and even then I got to see my friend's dad end it's life with a fly swatter. Never saw anything else. Just butterflies. =D

Bugs don't scare me. Except for spiders, wasps, hornets, bees, scorpions, roaches, any thing with more than for legs and Butterflies.

Butterflies are the scariest. Everyone thinks there innocent but i know the truth. It's a conspiracy there spying on us, they can read my thoughts.

They seek to bring Armageddon... a giant butterfly that rains down fire when it flaps it's wings and loves to play with it's four my little pony doomsday devices

but don't panic i have it under control.

As for the wasps, they will keep other insect populations down and will probably leave you alone if you leave them alone. Just think of them as spiders with wings. I know i do Very Happy

If you live in Australia, it's no wonder you're scared of bugs. Oz has a pretty nasty assortment of creepy-crawlies.

The spiders are pretty bad, but they're pretty much the only poisonous insect (well, sorta-insect), really. Even our bees sting less.

It's the snakes and stuff that's bad.

I have a kind of odd fascination with insect-y things :<

*shudders* I gots the heebie jeebies now Sad Bugs in general I have no issue with, but I do NOT like wasps. There's been a heck-load of them in Haggisland this year, but work has the niftiest gadget for getting rid of them. It looks like a miniature tennis raquet and zaps them as soon as you put it near them.

That they are ^_^ Poor waspies though. I always get a twinge of guilt when I zap one. Then I remember that my Mum is allergic to them and I zap some more.

I'm not afwaid of creepy crawlies, I just cannot stand when they're in an improper place.

Flies, ants, and roaches DO NOT belong in the kitchen, and I frown upon a kitchen that has Any. (Of course I understand sometimes ants just appear, but industrial kitchens should be clean enough that they don't attract any bugs ^^)


Spiders I like, because they eat mosquitoes and the like, they're good bugs, and also a lot of them that I find around here are cute xD


Bees, wasps hornets. . . Never been stung even when in their vicinity and other people have because I honestly believe the 'Ignore them and they'll go away' It works ^-^


And yeah Scorpians, so far I've seen a lot, never been bothered by them xD So I don't care Lol.


And that's about it xD For the most part I just ignore them XD
