When I was little, I thought that cobwebs were made by corncobs. I don't know how a corncob could make a web, though.
I used to believe that crickets could poison you with a special liquid they kept in their legs if you stared at them or get too close...
When I was in third grade I lived at my grandparents house and when my grandma tucked me in at night she would say, "Don't let the bedbugs bite." I imagined a 4 foot long 2 foot tall white cockroach comming into my room and biting me. It was horrifying
My brother used to think that cobwebs where made by cobs.
i used to believe that ears were actually earwigs and that when i saw my mum cleaning her ears the earwig was going to the toilet but needed help to get it all out:)
I use to believe that dragon flies and fire flies were fairies
i used 2 bleve that dragonfies and ladybugs were related and at night time they all came together and flew into space so they could see the whole world and they would see who was being naughty and they would eat all the naughty kids
When I was little my grandmother told me that if a thousand legged worm saw my teeth that they would all fall out. After I heard that every time I would see a thousand legged worm I would press my lips together and even talk with them curled over my teeth! Finally, they told me that it wasn't true but to this day (out of habit) I still cover my teeth when I see a thousand legged worm.
I used to believe that earwigs were ears that would crawl around and they wore a wig, I always ran away when my dad said there was an earwig because I didn't want to see it.
I used to think that pack rats were a kind of rat that ran around together in packs (groups).
i used to belive that if you held a glowworm for too long u would glow. i was soooooo scared of glowworms....im still scared of them.
I used to believe that Fireants were called Fireants because if they bit you, a little fire would rise up where they bit, and would not go out until you flicked the ant away.
When I was little, my mom told me that moths would eat my clothes. She neglected to specify, "when they're in the closet." So I thought that moths had these huge teeth and would land on me and eat right through my clothes and bite me. Then someone told me that butterflies are just pretty moths... To this day, I am terrified of both moths and butterflies.
when i was little someone told me that flies pooped every time they landed. of course that happened to be the summer that there were TONS of flies. if a fly even touched me, i went to go wash my hand. i was so freaked out by that. i think i was a gullible little kid
I used to be afraid that I would get burnt by the light on lightning bugs when you go to catch them because to me they looked like flying Christmas tree lights off the string that I had been burnt with that past Christmas.
i'm scared of spiders because my mum said they eat you (yeah phat chance)
I used to believe a had an imaginary friend called Sprouty, it was a spider. Sprouty had a friend as well, a huge giant! These were my best friends and we went everywhere together. How we managed to get a giant in the bus I don't know!
When I was little I thought it rained worms because after a rainstorm, there were always lots of worms on the sidewalk.
When I was small,I thought caterpillars came out of their cocoon with wings aned their caterpillar bodies.Freaky...
i used to think that little tiny spiders would grow big while my mom wasn'r looking and eat me.
