Yuck! I intensely dislike all creepy crawlies, perhaps not a phobia, but pretty close. I've had some bad experiences with bugs. For instance, one time I went out to my car at night to get something and on the way back to the house I felt a pop and squish under my foot. It was a gigantic palmetto bug (similiar to a large roach only it can fly)and its guts squished between my toes. uh! really gross I know! I almost threw up.

Another time, on my first canoe trip, we ran the canoe onto the side of the river and knocked into some branches that were boughed down low. When we hit the branches at least a 100 tiny spiders rained down from the tree and fell in my hair and were crawling all over me. I think you could hear my screams for miles. Sooooo now you know why I hate bugs so much, and these are only a couple of examples. I can't begin to tell you how many times I've been minding my own business when all of a sudden I feel something crawling on me. It's as though they know I hate them so they come swarming at me. It's weird. I don't know what I would've done if I were that lady on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom when she was in that secret passage-way and all those disgusting bugs started crawling all over her. I probably would have passed out.

Snakes creep me out.

Mostly, I am scared of the dark.

I can't stand spiders and most of the large insects, except bees, butterflies & dragonflies.

I'm also afraid of dogs, especially those little furry yappers who look like they'll bite into my ankle any minute.

After seeing a bat hanging from the outside of my apt near the door today, i realized that I'm scared of bats.

Not so much scared, but more disgusted by i suppose.

I get all spastic around spiders... one night me and my cousin were playing Tony Hawk 2 for Dreamcast... and we saw a little white spider on his controller. After looking up, we realized there were about 50 of the little buggers, if not more, crawling out from my ceiling fan. 50+ spiders on your ceiling is very, very, creepy!

Black Widows scare the bejeebus out of me, and have ever since I saw a reality show a few years ago that drove home the point that these mofos can do evil-ass things to you.

Temporary paralysis, death, etc.

And you don't have to be an old person or an infant to be suffer from their poison.

I know this is a serious thread, but that cracked me up for whatever reason. I hate black widows, I run like a pansy when I see them. I've only seen 2 in my life, one on the carport of my old house. Eww....

The nerve of those bugs. How dare they!! Showing absolutely no respect for your personal space!!!

LOL! your whole post really cracked me up. Maybe you can invest in some sort of space-age suit or some boy-in-the-plastic bubble apparatus to keep you from ever being assaulted like this again.

I hate(erm...afraid of...) every insect in the city area. I don't have any problem with them when I'm in the country side, but they're just not suitable for appearing in my room!!! Can't they make a bit of noise before they drop in front of(or ON) me??

I don't deal very well around spiders, but my worst bug experience happened when I was like 12, my friends' dad brought home a "high quality" whole smoked salmon, he broke it open and we dug in with our folks, I swear after we had all taken a mouthful of scrumptious salmon we were like "mmmmmmmm" and look down to see hundreds of little maggets all over the inside of the salmon, they were kinda jumping out . EWWWWW.
It was really a bad experience and smoked salmon is still NOT the same even today.
