what critters scares you the most?

Ok, let see who is willing to admit that they are afraid of some small critters. I know some folks are scrare of rats, spiders, flies...

I am most afraid of roach. Yes, they give me the creep. They are too fast for me to kill and here in Texas, roaches can fly. Them roaches can do 90 degree turn in a split second too.

Not a big fan of spiders. Especially when they get on me or crawl over my bare feet. Something about those 8 legs freaks me out. We had this big guy, about the size of a quarter, with 7 legs over the middle of the summer. I had to do something about him ASAP haha

at least with spiders, you don't have to work hard to chase them down and nuke them. With roaches, they travel by air (fly) and by land. I guess spiders travel by air too with their web lol.

Spiders really don't bother me.

I can kill them easily with newspapers.

Only thing I flinch at are bees and wasps etc. If I hear one flying too close to my ears I'll get all defensive and try to get as far away from them as possible. If I see one in my path, I'll take a detour or wait till it leaves before attempting to get in that area... I especially hate it when they linger around my car and I want to get in or out lol

I'm just afraid of getting stung and don't want to provoke them!

Scorpions. I've had the unfortunate experience of being stung, not one, not twice, but THREE different times. I hate them.

When I was in college, we had a "pet" scorpion.
The bar we built in the basement had a cutout in the front with a glass fish tank mounted inside. During parties we'd turn on a blacklight mounted above the tank (they glow under blacklight)... Nobody believed us it was real; till it'd move, then they'd freak out.
ALWAYS wore thick leather gloves when handling it.


Oh, and as for critters that I hate; insects - plain and simple. They all bug me (no pun intended).

this is hilarious...same feelings thing here with the bees. But they don't seem to bother me if they don't come into the house like roaches do. The roach is just being disrespectful by encroaching into my house

That's one thing I don't miss about Texas, those damn flying roaches. The giant fly's and mosquito's the size of a half-dollars are no fun either.

Roaches are my mortal enemy. I was really afraid of them from a trip to PR where they flew around.

Then I went to college in Savannah GA where they are EVERYWHERE. I sorta got used to them but they are still nasty creatures. I have horror stories of them being in my drawer with forks n knives, one crawling on my hand at night when i was at my computer, one flying onto my back off the ceiling... If I saw one I couldn't sleep at night until I knew it was dead.

I can tolerate most other creatures, in fact I like to take macro shots of insects, but roaches are where I draw the line.

Any roaches that get into my house get their butt whoop. So to all you roaches out there, beware. Don't believe me, look at this pic, lol.

I am the same way, I cannot sleep when I see a roach. I have to try and kill it. Many times, could not keep up with its speed so I loose and I am constantly on the lookout for it and go into battle until it dies. If it is still alive somewhere in the house, I am very uneasy and looses sleep.

Yah, not many people know about them glowing under a black light. I don't have any scorpions around my house, but my parents have plenty. You can go out at night with a black light and see 20-30 all along the fence.
