  • My cousin was like that with all flying insects,no matter how benign the bug.She grew out of it,we couldn't get her to go near them,no matter what we did.Why crickets?They seem like one of the least scary bugs!

  • I don't blame him ONE BIT! lol I hate those bugs and suck them up with a vaccum cleaner if I find one. UGH...spiders too. I don't deal with either of those well at all!
