I was completely shocked by the info on flies. Gyugh. My daughter loves to swat fly or as she says (slap some bugs). I'm gonna encourage her to keep it up. Yuck.

As for what I fear most? Its spiders. They're all spindly legs. They creep me out.

I despise the flying cockroaches here in the /s/o/u/t/h and the wasps that are compelled to build their nests at every entrance to the house.

Gregory Fortenberry said...

Wolf spiders are a pesk that we have a problem with that I would have to say I fear the most. I know they are not that harmful but when they get that big and one gets on your leg while your in bed you just can't help giving them some respect lol

Jenna H said...

I fear mice the most because I've had a few in my house before! They were in the basement and got through a tiny space. They are all gone and haven't had a problem since then.
