Have You Ever Bugged Out?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Orkin Ecologist for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hey Neighbors!

Bugs are not exactly a favorite creature of mine.  As a general rule, I am not afraid of them, but I definitely do not like them, especially when they surprise me.  I did not mind when my children carried bugs to me to look at, it was the ones, I didn't see coming that gave me a scare.  I mean who wants to see a large insect land in their hair and you can hear clicking type noises, but you can't see them.  My husabdn knocked it out of my hair, but I never did find out what it was.

My one daughter used to be terrified of bugs.  I am talking the screaming, shaking, almost hysteria type fear.  It was while she was young.  I can remember taking her to a public restroom when she was about 3 and I was waiting outside the door for her.  She started yelling, "There's a bug!  There's a bug!".  Unfortunately she needed to unlock the door to let me in, and it took several minutes to get her to realize this.  She did get over this and started bringing me bugs to see.  As a matter of fact, about the time she turned 8 a friend (a boy of course) tried to scare her with a bug and she asked to see it closer.  He was very disgusted that she did not holler like his sister did.

What is the scariest bug you have ever seen?  Did you "bug out"?  I read an article about the world’s scariest bugs,.  it was quite interesting and I plan on sharing it during school soon.  I actually think I have read about almost all the bugs in the article, except the bullet ant.  They claim that their sting is like being shot or like being stabbed with a hot nail.  I don't think I ever want to meet one of those.

I found the above image of the Bullet Ant on

If you or your children are interested in bugs, you will find the Orkin Ecologist site extremely interesting.  Homeschooling moms, take note and bookmark the page.  You might want to find them on their social media pages also, like Orkin Ecologist on Facebook.  Their Pinterest page The Orkin Ecolgist is simply astounding, with all the bug pictures.  We found some really good science material in these pages.

Take a minute and share your own #BugOut moment in the comments here or on one of your social media. By using the hashtag you will be included in all the buzzzz!  Thanks for stopping by!  See you,At the Fence!
