I honestly don’t know what drew me to this thread but I decided to look at it and GROSS! I’m going to have nightmares now! =P I know I shouldn’t have kept looking and reading, but I couldn’t help it. Now I’m terrified because I hate creepy crawly things!!!!!

The worst thing that I’ve encountered, were 1. a cricket spider, those things are gross! and they hop like a cricket ahhhhhh! and 2. a water beetle/roach thing! They aren’t cockroaches, they just come out when it’s been raining. I found the first one in my bedroom on my bed, crawling near my fiance!!! It wouldn’t smash either! YIKES! THEN the next one came out at night and crawled on my face over my EYE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DIED! And couldn’t sleep for the rest of the night. Now I have bug traps out and that seemed to keep them away. But Spring is alsmot here and the rain has been coming, so I’m HOPING to not see anymore!

Seriously, I will die if I see anymore creepy things! ick! lol

I had a really weird dream last weekend about huge spiders taking over my life. I think it was because of this thread!!

Wow. I am a moron for looking at this right before bedtime.

We have these in Oklahoma. I almost stepped on one once, and a friend of my sisters swears this is what crawled inside her bathing suit one day and bit the hell out of her. That’s NOT my hand, thank goodness!

We discovered this ugly bug in Egypt. It looks like a grasshopper/spider/cockroach mix.. with fur!! It was super gross. Also, you couldn’t tell if it was going or coming, the front and the back look the same. Ew. I don’t know WHAT kind of cross-breeding happened there.

@ mcverde: I think that was the most disgusting thing I have ever seen in my life. Even more disgusting than when I saw the fake “bugs hatched from breasts” (don’t look it up if you don’t want to be disturbed … fake or not, still gross)

 

@ bakerella: Morbid curiousity? That is what I’m chalking it up to.

 

I have two stories, no photos though.

This is how my spider phobia began. When I was little, I learned about spiders in science class. I came home that day and went to have a bath and I saw this creepy ass spider near the toilet. I freaked out, dropped my towel and ran. My big bro came in to kill it, but it was no where to be found. I had my bath, and while I was towelling off I had a sixth sense and the spider was in the middle of my back! (it must have crawled into my towel when I dropped). I was freaking out and completely starkers and my big brother and older cousin had to rush into the bathroom. Can I remind you I was COMPLETELY starkers.

 

This next story is funny now that I reflect on it. My sister and I were at her boyfriend’s place in his basement, he had gone out to pick up pizza I think. And we saw this HUGE centipede along the far wall. My sister is way more petrified of bugs than I am. She went and got some sort of spray cleaner and was shooting at the bug from the couch. Eventually we did kill it. However, her boyfriend’s basement had green carpeting and she had chosen bathroom cleaner with bleach. His parents were NOT impressed that there were bleach streaks all over their carpeting.

Bugs creep me out. And since I was stupid enough to read this thread, I had toi send the link to my SO so he culd be equally grossed out 🙂 Aren’t I awesome?

When I lived in Hawaii we had gecko’s ALL OVER the place. And centipedes. And water beetles. And spiders. And big nasty flying bugs. Hands down the worst were the cenipedes though. Especially the poisonous ones. These are MEAN. I never saw one in my house, but a neighbor found one. She trapped it inder a bowl, put a gallon bottle of water on top of the bowl and called the pest control people to come get it. (It’s a giant redhead centipede)

When I see stuff like this it reminds me why I live in IL…because we don’t get bugs like those.  Don’t get me wrong, when there’s 3 ft of snow on the ground and it’s -15 degrees I definitely wish I was someplace warmer…but, I could never EVER live with bugs like those.  Eewwww!!!

So many gross bugs on this thread!!! I thought I would add another one 😀 It’s a stick insect that we found in Indonesia, about 25cm long…it was actually rather friendly.
