I remember when I was little and we were at a lake full of dragon flies I got mad and my dad and I told my dad "shut up" He jumped up and said "dont say that or the dragonflies will sow your mouth shut" I believed that for a very long time and one day got curios and told a dragon fly to shut up and ran after I said it. lol

When my sister and I were little, our parents told us that spiders were afraid of beds (so that we would still sleep if there was a spider in our bedroom). I distinctly remember standing at the door of my room and making a running jump to get to the bed as fast as I could, because then the spiders wouldn't get me. We believed it for years, and therefore our parents never had to deal with "I can't go into my room, there's a spider there!" It's such a convenient story that I plan on telling it to my kids someday!

My Mum told me snails were diseased whenever I played with them so now I'm still scared of them. Especially when my girlfriend taunts me with them (she likes them)

I was always scared to kill any bug because I thought that when you died you'd have to live the life of everything you ever had killed. I always imagined how much it would suck having to be squised, and that was motivation enough.

As a child I thought that if you killed a praying mantis, you had to pay God $50.00.

Ladybugs are deadly. I was told this by my brother, who, days after, put a hand full of them down my shirt while walking home from school (I was 6 at the time). To this day (I'm now 21), I still have a phobia.

When I was a kid, I thought a Shoefly was a type of fly. This was because of the song Shoo Fly, don' bother me...

When i was 9 i was told that butterflies are called this because their wings are made of butter.
For a while i believed this until i licked one and it didn't taste like butter.

When I was a kid, I convinced one of my friends that the powder on a moths wing was deadly poisonous. I knew that if you touch a moths wings the powder would rub off and the moth wouldn't be able to fly, and I told him this and he didn't care... so I told him that it was poisonous and would kill him.

I used to believe that snakes were worms and worms were snakes, because my dad would play with snakes and let me play with them, too. He would point to a huge worm and call it a snake, and I would cringe in disgust. Now, I'm pretty sure he did that purely for his own amusement. Now, I hate worms, but snakes are okay.

I was told when a bee stung you it lost it's stinger and died, but I heard wrong and thought if you were stung by a bee you would die. Well one day I was stung by a bee and I started cyring and cryingg and wouldn't stop until my parents told me that i heard wrong.

When I was about 5 I accidentally swallowed a roly-poly bug (I was blowing on it with a straw and acidentally sucked in). Months later I was ill and in the hospital and I overheard the doctors saying I had a "bug" in my system. I was convinced the roly-poly was making me sick!

This is about my brother. He loved snakes. One day his female snake had a litter of baby snakes. He ran into the house screaming and yelling and my mother thought he had an accident, but he just kept yelling "I'm a father, I'm a father"!

When I was little, my mom told me that bugs and mosquitos try to get into your ear and your ear canal when you go to sleep, so naturally, I slept with a pillow below me and a pillow above me. I got two small pillows, the type that babies sleep on, and still use them to this day.

When I was six my mom told me I was sick and had a stomach "bug" that was making me vomit. I walked into the living room and uncontrollably puked on the floor. I looked down at the mess i had just made and notice there was string in it and on the end of the string was a bug. A lady bug to be specific (which was probably on the floor to begin with)and I was convinced I had gotten rid of the bug so I was all better. For the longest time IO thought ladybugs would make you sick if you touched them.

When I was about 5 or 6, my sister convinced me that ants were chocolate. And I ate them. They tasted pretty good, actually.
