Fear of Worms

This post brought to you by The Orkin Ecologist. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ever since I was a kid, I have always feared any kind of worms.  My husband can't seem to understand that I am not  scared of  spiders but I am  totally  scared of worms.  Looking at the top ten bug phobias at Orkin website, I learned that the term for my fear of worms is Scoleciphobia.  My husband's phobia is Arachnophobia, the fear of  spiders.  You would laugh when you see him freak  out  upon seeing even the smallest  spider.  My daughter is  the combination of me and my husband, she is scared of both worms and spiders.  My son on the other hand is not scared of worms at all but he  is scared of spiders as well.  To  prove you  of his  obsession of  worms and other bugs, here are some photos.
My family love outdoor activities and we always take the kids to nature adventure such as hiking, walking on a trail, or even just observing the creatures in a creek.  Every time we go on a nature escapade, my son is always busy  exploring  bugs and other crawlies.  It always freaks me out when he  holds worms.  He know that too so he would purposely  show it to me lol.  As I was writing this post, I called my son and now he is literally "bugging" me to  stay at the Orkin's page wahhh.  He is very interested about the Dung Beetle.  Now I know how to calm him down when he is getting a little hyper lol.  I a m bookmarking  Orkin's webpage so I can just come back and  check on bugs when my son  is feeling  "bug-out". 

I don't know how the people from Orkin could  look at those  world’s scariest bugs and not only that, they study every bug there is.  If you have kids like mine who likes this kind of stuff and other related science subject, check Orkin out.    How about you, do you have  bug moment?  Are  scared of any bug?  You may share it here through the comments.

I had goose bumps. I’m also not scared of any other creatures other than worms.

Spiders are okay with me. But the worms, whew. It's great that Mr. Burrito's not afraid of the crawlies. I checked out the site and it's a really interesting site. My boys would love that site as well.

I don't have the courage to hold worms. It scares me a lot.

Worms are my favorite lol especially when I'm putting them on a hook to go fishing :) but I don't care much for spiders.
