I feel very scared to see the centipede. It has lots of feet and it can move so soon. I will scream whenever I see it. Fortunately today it is not common for us to see it. Sometimes I will see it in a specific market which sells it. I have heard that it's good to make a healthy soup but I have never tried it.

Hmm... you are not alone in feeling that way. If one ever crosses my path, I will stamp on it till it goes still. Unless of course it doesn't come my way when I am outside. But if it is in my home, no way is it gonna be seeing the light of another day. No telling where it will crawl to next. So better be safe than sorry. I still remember the time I got so riled up cos one of them crawled up my pants during a camping trip. Can you imagine a mad boy jumping up and down trying to untie his boots so that he can can his pants off to chase the darn centipede out? Half naked, still in your boots, pants half way down, in your underwear jumping up and down trying to shoo away that creepy crawlie? Yucks!

I don't think I will have guts to stamp on it. I will just run away and ask for help.

i can't stand a roach. I won't even go near it. I can't even kill it cause it makes that crunchy noise when you do. Oh it makes me shiver.

If the roach won't fly, then I won't be scared of it. Once it flies, I will run away.

I heard somewhere that if you cut a cockroaches head off it's body, it still can survive for several hours or so. I don't think I'd want to experience watching that. Oh my.

First of all, the thought of eating a soup made of centipedes makes me a little sick! Anyway, the insect that scares me the most are spiders. I think they are amazing creatures though. The webs they spin are beautiful and I know they are very beneficial for the environment but the thought of one crawling on me gives me the heebie jeebies!

You won't see any centipedes in the soup. They will take them away after the soup is done. If I don't tell you, you won't find the soup is made from centipedes:)

I heard of people dipping cockroaches in chocolate and calling it a delicacy but never heard of centipede soup. But sounds more disgusting!

Cockroaches. I hate cockroaches. I think they are disgusting, scary bugs! They are one of the few bugs that will send me running! Spiders don't bother me, worms don't bother me....most just don't bother me! But cockroaches, man they at=re the worst!! Wasps are a close 2nd behind them. Wasps are aggressive insects that protect their territory, and their sting hurts!

Actually I am definitely not a nature girl. I got scared almost seeing every kind of insects *laughs*. I know it sounds weird, but they do look "not fun to be with" to me and I would run away when I see something flying towards me or climbing towards me!

I hate seeing cockroaches! It makes me feel yucky and eery. So I always make it sure that our house is generally clean to avoid such an "unwanted visitor". Cockroaches usually tribe on dirty houses.

I feel today the small cockroaches are much more annoying as they are so difficult to be killed.

Thanks. I guess when I was young I was outside playing and saw all types of insects and I got used to them.

I am more afraid of mosquitoes which are infected with the malaria parasites. If stung by those mosquitoes, it can be deadly if not treated. Bee stings can also be deadly if we are allergic to them.

It's true that mosquitoes can spread lots of serious diseases.

I'm scared of all insects.. no matter how small they are. Just imagining an insect crawling in my hands, would make my hair rise.

I dont like the Centipied either. The only other bug that creeps me out is a bee and I think its because Im allergic. Im usually the one to be found on all fours in the grass looking for bugs. My kids help to. We catch all kinds and feed them to our Lizards. The kids get to learn about a bug and the Lizard gets Lunch!

Do not try to annoy bees as they can be very dangerous.

An airborne cockroach!Actually, of all insects, that's the one I hate the most. I'm a little braver when it's just trying to scurry away. Because I still have the "courage" to go after and eliminate it. But the moment that it takes off flying..! I go to the nearest cover with a scream!lol My sisters and I were so afraid of flying cockroaches when we were kids. I remember once when the three of us were chatting, sitting on the sofa, when this small cockroach came flying towards us. Naturally, we all stood up and ran for cover, screaming. Our father was so mad at us when he found out that we were all screaming because of a small cockroach. He thought when he heard our screams, someone was murdering us. :)

There is only one pesky insect that I am really afraid and scared of and this is the wasp! Mainly because I am highly allergic to them and one sting could in fact kill me! So during the wasp season I have to carry around with me an epipen so if I do get stung I can quickly inject myself! If I see one I can't relax and won't rest until it's gone or killed! I wage a personal war on them, damn nuisance and I never understand what use they have apart from to annoy humans! And provide a potentially lethal sting.

Fortunately here the wasp is not common at all. I know it can be very dangerous to annoy the wasp.

I have seen the odd one here but it is pretty rare. They are a bit spooky for me but not enough that I can't remove it from our home. I think the ones I hate are roaches (luckily I never seen one here) but I did life in a roach hotel as a child. Also earwigs cause they pinch. Here they have big ugly spiders that kinda freak me out so I don't really like them either.
