If I had to name one "creature" that scared me or made my skin crawl (no pun intended) I think it would have to be spiders. That's pretty common, right? I mean the things have 8 legs - not only that but 8 HAIRY legs, which alone is creepy enough! Well, I recently found the top 10 bug phobias, and guess what? Number 1 is "arachnophobia" - the fear of spiders. I would say I am probably number one on the list of people with arachnophobia, without a doubt in my mind.
So what got me started in this, well - I found out that Orkin, a pest control company, not only helps keep the pests out of your home, but they also study them - which in turn made them create the top 10 bug phobia list. Ha! So I know that most of us are totally creeped out by these creepy crawly creatures, but little be known - these little creatures actually do serve a purpose - a vital role actually. You can learn more about the individual roles of each of these tiny creatures by heading over to the Orkin Ecologist website! There is so much information over there, and me being an Animal Planet lover, it really intrigued me, it's a fantastic educational resource too!
For all those Facebook users out there you can also check out the Orkin Ecologist here, and Pinterest users check them out here! There are even some cute big inspired craft projects for your little one on their Pinterest page that are definitely worth checking out!
I'd love for you to share your #BugOut moments with me either in a comment below, Twitter or on my Facebook page - I always crack up hearing peoples crazy bug stories. I have quite a few myself!
