Well I live by a fairly large cornfield. Every fall when they harvest it, the thousands of ladybugs that live there have to find a new home. They usually end up at my house. When I was younger, I didn’t get scared by these insects at all. They will crawl all over me and if I just see one I will scream to have my mom or anyone who’s home to come get it. If I see a single ladybug on my body I freak out and scream uncontrollably. I’m not just scared of ladybugs, I’m scared of many of other bugs as well. For example, large beetles, grasshoppers, stink bugs, moths, sometimes butterflies, daddy long legs, and dragonflies. The worst thing happened today. I live right next to a big creek where no one usually goes so I can have it all to myself, but in order to get there is have to walk for about five minutes through big tall weeds. Well there were these ugly, putrid, horrendous looking insects all through them. And I’m not talking about a ladybug or small bugs. These were huge beetle things that made this terrible sound. And when I saw it i screamed and ran and started having a panic attack.
