Why are we so afraid of bugs?

Why are so many people afraid of bugs? Everyone has been startled by bugs. We don’t expect to see them but there they are! Few people have pleasant memories of insects. I bet most people can remember times they’ve been frightened by a creepy critter. Haven’t we all walked through spider webs and freaked out? How many people find a bee in the house and can concentrate on nothing else?

They bring diseases, can hurt you if they bite or sting you. Bugs can cause allergic reactions, asthma attacks, itching, and just plain discomfort. For some people, bugs are the things horror movies are made of. Nobody invites them in but they come anyway. You just never know when they are around which makes them even scarier.

If you are one of the many who are afraid of bugs you may want to become more educated about them, what you know is less scary then the unknown. If you are still afraid, call a professional exterminator to rid your home of these nightmare inducing pests.
