I run and scream like a girl. Dh always laughs and tells me to stop being a girl. Dd picks them up and tries to put them on me. I hate hate hate bugs. We see a bug in the house maybe once a week. Its usually a cricket, rollie pollie, or a fly. I would burn this bitch down if I ever saw a roach. 3 years in this house and never had one

It really depends on the bug. Spiders don't bother me much unless they are in or near my bedroom, then you can kiss your ass goodbye.  If they are larger (just the body) than a dime, I will call my guy over to handle it because just ew.

Anything flying doesn't bother me.  Bees I let fly around me without flinching.

Now, centipedes, roaches and ticks are what make my skin crawl and I will scream bloody murder.

I kill them, my kids kill them, my MIL kills them.

My DH screams like a girl and makes one of us kill them.

Depends on what it is. If it's a bee or something I get df to come put it outside- he refuses to kill bugs. If it's a fly or moth I ignore it. Ants I usually kill.
But if a bee comes near me outside I scream and try to run away from it lol.

Depends on the bug. If it is a spider, I might jolt, but I am okay with it. If it is ants, I cuss and bust out the spray and such. We have a huge (from what the exterminator said) fire ant colony under out house, and they keep finding ways in. It is driving me bonkers. The weird thing, they are coming into rooms that have no food. They are big, mean, they hurt like hell when they sting, and I am so fucking tired of them!

Depends on the bug. Usually I just ignore them.
