Up until age 14, I thought stitches were little black bugs they put in your wound to heal it. This is because when I was five I had stitches placed in the center of my forehead at the hairline. All I could see was a little black through my tears.

When I was little, I slept on my side, and when I blinked, my eyelashes would brush the pillow, and I thought that I was hearing worms taking bites out of the inside of my head. I was terrified of it for the longest time......

I used to believe that the reason you never saw moths during the day was because they were all flying towards the sun. Then, when they couldn't make it all the way there and it got dark, they would see the lights of the houses and fly back down.

I thought bug spray/ fumigating didn't actually kill the bugs just smelled really bad so the bugs would leave. When I found out it does kill I thought it seemed really mean!

When I was a kid, I heard that earwigs can't walk backwards. (Later I found out there was a Star Trek episode about this, maybe?) I was terrified an earwig would go into my ear and, only being able to move forward, would have to eat through my brain to go out the other ear. I slept with my hands over my ears for years.

I used to believe that earwigs were hairy little bug strips that would get stuck on your ears and people would freak out when they saw you because they would think you were slowly becoming like a hairy monkey or something.
I was a strange child.....

I use to believe that if you stepped on a spider, it would pee, then it would lose its eyes, then it would explode, so every time I stepped on a spider I would run away.

I used to believe that if you cut an earthworm in half that it created two new worms. I was told this by my neighbor after I accidently cut a worm in half while digging in the ground and started crying. I belived this into my 20s.

I used to believe that if you ate a worm or something else like that, that it would come out your nose. From this day on I stay away from the crawly bugs. Not that I believe in it but they still freak me out!!

When I was young somebody told me moths eat your clothes. From that day on I was terrified of moths because I thought they'd pounce on me, gnaw my clothes off, and leave me standing there naked. I'm 67 years old and I'm still scared of moths.

When I was 5, I somehow came under the impression that when a caterpillar went into a cocoon, that meant it was dead. This made for a slightly traumatic experience when I caught one and was convinced I had killed it a few hours later.

When I was little, I was playing with my brother and I saw an earwig crawl across the floor. My brother said it was called an earwig because it would go into your ear while you were sleeping and lay eggs. It freaked me out, I was so scared to go to sleep.

I used to believe that if you killed a spider, for example stepping on it and crushing it, that in the final second before it died it sent out signals calling all other spiders within a certain range to the spot. So I was always careful, after killing a spider, to leave the immediate vicinity to avoid being swarmed by thousands of spiders!

I used to love catching fireflies in jars as a youngster. I thought we could solve the planet's electricity problems by just filling rooms full of jars full of lightning bugs so that we would have constant light without electricity forever.
