Bugs to me are very creepy and I feel that I am comfortable to say that I have somewhat of a phobia of them. I'm not sure what's worse bugs that fly like wasps, bees, misquitos and so on, or.. bugs that crawl.. there are way too many of them to mention but I"ll try..woodticks, spiders, junebugs, cockroaches. Gross! I often wonder why God creates these creatures and what they are made for? It's obvious Bees are here to make honey but I can't understand the rest. What give you the heebie geebies more,.. bugs that can fly? Or bugs that can crawl?

Crawling bug - Here is a picture of a Crawling bug
Probably bugs that can fly because they can "get you easier" yuck. I saw a flying cockroach one time. Nasssty. Oh and flying ants & wasps, mosquities. Good thing we dont have flying spiders! But we do have jumping spiders.

Wow! That looked like a real bug at first glance to me too! I even went so far as to try to blow it off of my screen before I realized it was just a picture!

I have to say the bugs that fly bother me the most. I have had bee stings that have cause me some real pain. I have had that annoying fly buzzing around my food. Not to mention the ears and how that sounds. I have had a bug fly in my mouth as well. I have had those tiny bugs that stay around in bunches just annoying the hell out of me. One of those bugs went right into my eye.. I could go on for days. The bugs that crawl are also the ones I hate.. But,I can stomp them out in a second flat.

Wow giftsandbagscom, I couldn't say it better myself! That is most annoying when it's hard to kill those flying bugs and a lot easier to stomp them when they crawl. You know what else I hate? The sound that hummingbirds make OMG I can't stand that deep noise, it creeps me out too. I guess I'm tramatized about them since I was a kid. My best friend at the time and I would get home from school and go over to her place and there was this hummingbird by her mom's flowervine which wasn't that far from her backdoor at all and I swear to this day it would terrorize us by making it very difficult to get into the door. It would swoop at us and we would end up just going to my house which was next door. Thanks for your comment

Yes spiders are creepy and they do crawl that's forsure! My mom had this spider that vacated just outside the window of my old bedroom. It was three years ago exactly that I noticed this huge thing. It was so big that you could see it's back and it looked like it's markings were a face. It was so gross. I didn't realize that spiders were so hairy either! Sorry if this is grossing you out. Thanks for sharing your thoughts

I think the bugs which can fly are worse. Because they can fly, it's so hard for us to kill it and it's quite annoying when it's around you. As to the bugs that crawl, it's just so easy to get rid of them. I love China

I agree that it's easier to get rid of bugs that crawl but it's when you don't know they're on you say in your sleep or someone else notices them on you. I find it so annoying when a Wasp won't leave me alone I'm so petrafied of them as it is not to mention them harrassing me when I"m walking or just enjoying the outdoors!

i would have to say both flying and crawling bugs. i dont mind spiders that much but i still dont like them. i dont mind the very little ones but the big ones i really dont like. lol. the bug that i really hate would have to be 'roaches'. i hate it when they crawl up the wall and then fly! until now i scream when i see one flying and coming close to me. lol. its really horrible. they make me feel itchy. eeugh.. lol. i get that insects are part of the eco systems and all but roaches? lol.. i heard that insect bats would eat roaches inside the caves, so why wouldnt they just stay there. lol.. and i dont know if this is true but i just also heard this from probably an unreliable source if it isnt true that 'roaches are the only things that would survive a nuclear explotion'? lol. i dont know why though. they could just disappear for all i care. huhuhu.. sorry if i offend any roach lovers...

You didn't offend me haha I'm no roach lover I've heard about the roaches being able to outlive a nuclear explotion too! I wished those bats would hurry up and eat all of them so this planet would be through with roaches! I'm in Canada and I haven't seen any here but when I was younger my parents took us to California to a relative's house to visit for a few days. My younger brother was in bed one night there and all the sudden we could hear him screaming! My dad ran in there to see what was going on and when he flicked on the light, he could see this cockroach flee away from on the bed! EWWWWWWWWWWWWW gross! I would've been doing more than screaming!

I don't like those either. Whenever I'm watching a movie and see a real bad bug scene it in, I have to turn my head and not look and remember.. it's just a movie! It grosses me out that badly! Thank you for your thoughts

Anything that crawls i find them really creepy and annoying, i hate the way they move it makes my skin feels fuuny when i look at them. Bugs that fly i am not too bothered about except for wasps ans bees, they sting really bad. i am not afraid of the others either.

Yeah I don't really like wasps or bees either. When there's a wasp around me I'm dancing and it makes me look like a fool. I can't contain myself when one is around. I'm terrified of them because I've never been bit or stung in my whole life. Thanks for your comment

Both. I hate the sight of a moth flying around my light. It's so creepy. But I hate bugs that crawl because they might get in my shoes or my socks.. or crawl up my pantleg. Not a good discussion to respond to before bedtime. I hate bugs period. I don't mind the big ones. Like big spiders n'stuff, but I hate creepy crawlers and little things that fly. Too much for me!

I agree. Bugs are very creepy. I hate mostly all bugs. i HAVE lots of flyswatters. You can at least attack the flying bugs. Crawling ones are worse. Especially cockroaches, centipedes, and all the other ones that keep on moving after you smack them with something....EEEEEWWWWW.. Both kinds of bugs to me are gross... Thank goodness for insect repellent, flyswatters, flypaper, RAID, etc......

Definitely bugs that fly - especially big ones (um, flying cockroaches... eeeeeek!). I can't stand centipedes/millipedes either, again, because they're so... big/long and creepy, but the flying ones are so much harder to get rid of. At least with the crawling ones, it is relatively easy to either sweep them out or spray them directly. When they fly, it's a bit of a challenge. When I see one, I have been known to go crazy with the bug spray just to ensure that it will die soon, haha! But yeah, I could never be an exterminator. It would gross me way out to have to deal with some of those infestations they deal with on a regular basis.

Yes skydancer, that's one job I could never do is be an exterminator for the same reasons that you gave.. YUCK~ I have two cats now and my older cat is just amazing when it comes to killing bugs. My hubby accidently let in a moth at nighttime and he said the cat seen this moth and jumped up on the back of the couch, and in a mid-swat he got it! He's very quick with flying bugs but I haven't seen him with crawling bugs yet. I'm sure he's had his share of catching spiders around here though since we've spotted a few already since we've moved in but I guess that's the price we pay for living in the country. Thanks for your comment!

Bugs that crawl are the ones that creep me out, especially ticks and spiders. I'm sure that they all serve some purpose on earth, but I wouldn't miss them at all!

Bees are here to annoy people. They fly around your head and just demand to be swatted. They also chase you around when you're minding your own business. I cant's stand bugs and insects! I think they should all be squashed out of existence. I must admit to being afraid of bees, wasps, etc., though.

You are not alone Marcola! I hate those kinds too. Wasps really scare me badly and I think it's because of the horror stories I"ve heard about what it's like to be stung. I've never been stung and maybe I need to be to cure the phobia I have from them. Am I alergic? I wouldn't know that either Have a good day and thanks for sharing your thoughts

I hate both! xD I don't like bugs because I'm allergic to their bites, plus they way the scurry and flutter around, especially close to my face, creeps me out.

I hate all bugs.But the worse is the roaches.This friend i had along time ago had them and she came to my house one day and she had one on her and did not know it and a couple of days later i seen one in my house.I was not happy so i told her she had to be care full when she whent out that she did not bring them with her and that is hard to do.I had to pay some one to come and spray my house and make sure i did not have any more.

hi wiser, I've been blessed not having any roaches in my home but I feel bad for you because you did. I hate those critters because they get into everything from what I've heard and you can transport them to anywhere you go, and they are constantly multiplying. Thanks for sharing your experience

BUGS!!! I dont want any part of them at all. I hate them. If they crawl or fly, or walk....LOL!! THEY ARE STILL BUGS NO MATTER HOW THEY GET AROUND MOBILY. I expecially hate to go outside and nats are flying all around my head and my body. Its just aggravating. And i know that bugs are apart of life too.....but i caould do without them. And i try my very best to stay away from them as much as possibly can.

I guess I would have to say bugs that crawl. I actually call them creepy crawlies. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, bugs that crawl include my worst phobia - spiders. They also include some of the grosser bugs like lice, roaches, and fleas. Second, bugs that fly can usually be shoed away or swatted with relative ease. Bugs that crawl can sneak up on you and crawl up your legs, or in your hair without your knowledge and that just freaks me out. Not to mention that they don't tend to leave if you move and flying bugs do.

You made me realize the difference of fears between the flying bugs and crawling bugs sisterjinx! I feel that I"m more afraid of flying bugs especually wasps because they have a tendincy of being angry and sting or bite and will pester. Crawling bugs can bite without you even realizing they did sometimes, and some spiders are deadly like the recluse spider. Gross! Thanks for your comment
