Oh true, I didn't think of that! But then again you also get rat poison and such so wouldn't that lead to Normal-types also being weak to Poison...? (something which I always thought would make sense, haha) I think it's just a case of bugs being so small and non-sentient that people are 'happy' to kill them with poisons, so they're more well-known haha. It's a sad truth, but I reckon that's why bugs seem so susceptible to poison. :p

This was a shot in the dark though xD
