How tolerant are you of spiders, slugs, crickets, roaches, rats, and other vermin?

Do you scream and run away, do you stare at it, do you pick it up?

I dislike insects with a passion. Thankfully there's no roaches in this house.

Mice are adorable though, I hate to admit.

I have to pick up crickets and isopods for my chameleon to eat, so I'm fairly comfortable with bugs.
Rats and spiders? No wayyy!! Eugh!

I'm not very tolerant of having any type of bugs or vermin near me.

I have a specific phobia to roaches and anything that may look like them. Seriously, when I see a roach I can't stay in the same place I was in until I know that the roach was either killed or removed. They just gross me out.

I like hamsters, gerbils, and stuff like that, but no rats, please. They are just creepy, lol.

I don't have a problem with mice and rats but I hate spiders and roaches. Could care less about slugs and crickets.

Unless they're in my house I'm just going to leave them alone. Fortunately I've never seen them inside my house besides the occasional spider.

I am alright with most kinds of creepy crawlies expect from Crane flies.
If I see one I'll run a mile without stopping.

Bugs? No issue there. I'm pretty indifferent to them. Mice and rats? Nope nope nope nope I'd rather launch myself out of the nearest window than handle them.

I don't mind furry things and I don't mind things that move quickly, but I cannot do furry things that move quickly. No thank you. It's an intolerance that stems from watching a rat shadow crawl across my window at my old house. The shadow, of course, was much larger than a normal rat, but it was late at night every time it happened and it kept me awake out of sheer terror.

The only things that I can't stand are roaches & rats, as they're pests rife with disease.

Everything else I don't mind, even when it comes to handling them. I'm not sure why some of them are scared of spiders, though.

I've had pet rats before and family members have had mice. So I actually find them to be quite cute.

Bugs generally don't bother me. I don't enjoy finding a spider just chilling out on my arm, though. If it's something like a snail, I'll think it's cute. I:

Edit: As for stuff that stings, I just avoid them. Somehow, I end up being stung anyway, though. The one time I don't even know what the heck that was that stung me. :?

The only bugs and rodents I could tolerate in the house are flies, and I'm still going to get rid of them. The rest of them freak the hell out, especially if they're in my house. ;~~~~;

If it's outside, the only thing I freak out about are bees. I don't want to get stung, haha. Otherwise I hardly notice.

Oh definitely. I find snails and slugs to be VERY adorable :)

Spiders, not so much.

I can't say what I'd do if I encountered a rodent, since I've never had to deal with them as a pest.

Spiders I'll keep my distance from and hope they go away, things like centipedes I'll probably squish, something like a beetle or similar I'll catch and release outside, if it's a roach or a fly, nope, they're definitely getting squashed. I will not stand having roaches around, and as for flies...well, seems like there are times of the year where if I get one, I suddenly have 30, so NO. No flies. It got so bad last year I ended up finally buying flypaper for those little beggars (and of course by that time I'd gone on enough of a rampage that they were pretty much all dead).

A stingy bug like a wasp, I'll probably flail around and hope I can coax into going outside. Hnnngh.

Anything else, though...I'll probably end up leaving alone. Like those silverfish I've had pop up in my bathroom from time to time. They're okay, I don't care if they stay.

I used to have pet hamsters, and one of my teachers had guinea pigs that I loved to play with, so rodents are generally fine by me.

Bugs, however, I will freak out (just a bit) if I ever see a bug inside. Outside, only a bee or mosquito or the like would make me cringe. Hate bugs overall, kinda phobic.

I tend to feel uneasy around cockroaches, but I'm okay with other smaller insects. As for rats/mice, it depends on whether they're domesticated or not.

I'm not really scared of bugs, unless if it's a bee or wasp (I always think they're trying to sting me), also spiders. I hate spiders.

Rats also creep me out cos they're pests.

Bugs dont bother me unless they're in my home. I kill them from afar with a mix of hairspray in one hand and raid in the other. I haven't encountered rats or anything in my home, though.

I absolutely HATE worms/slugs, they disgust me so incredibly much. Some spiders trouble me, but only because I worry that they're venomous. I am perfectly okay with rats/mice etc.

Basically anything slimy disgusts me. Worms, slugs, frogs, snails, leeches and to a lesser extent fish.

I myself am very fascinated by bugs and arachnids and other small creatures.

I try to not bother them unless they try to make their home in a place I use a lot (such as closet, or the shelf, or computer desk).

I'm only worried about the insects/vermin/creatures that could potentially carry diseases, I try to dispose of them as quickly as possible. Such as flies, ants, roaches, especially rats and mosquitos.

I don't mind bugs at all. I especially love spiders, they tend to keep the other bugs away, and usually make their homes/webs in corners I don't use at all.

I've never had much of a problem with creepy crawlies except for wasps. I also find rats adorable.

Some insects may look creepy and I wouldn't like having them on me, but I don't mind getting a good look at them FOR SCIENCE.

However, there are some insects I don't want to have to deal with. These five are a good place to start.

I'm terrified of all insects, mainly because they're gross and icky, but I don't scream. Although whenever I see a cockroach, I stare at it for quite some time, or warn my mother. But when it has wings, run. away.

Not tolerant at all. I hate bugs and rodents... they are the most disgusting creatures on earth. I also kind of freak out over them, but not as bad as some girls I know do. They are just so gross!
