They generally live on garbage and dust, hence they play a huge role in spreading harmful bacteria. While walking around, they tend to leave behind trails of fecal matter. Cockroaches look like these little monsters who will enter your skin and kill you from the inside. Especially the ones with wings that appear all the more deadly.

Herpetophobia is the term used with reference to the extreme fear of creepy creatures, especially lizards. Are you also among the millions of women who scream at the top of their lungs, jump up and down, freeze on the spot or pass out when they see a lizard? You are not alone at all. Although lizards are actually harmless, they look exactly the opposite. Be it their gooey skin or their cold eyes, one lizard is enough to create turmoil in a room full of women.

Ophidiophobia refers to extreme fear of snakes. Well, you do have every reason to fear them, because of the fact that most of them are poisonous. However, it is human nature to fear even those that are not. Come to think of it, if you were given to hold a non-poisonous snake, would you not get freaked out to do that?

There are a couple of spider bites that could be dangerous, but the rest of them hardly even bite. Still for some reason, a weird looking creature having so many legs, being harmless, is a fact that is too difficult to like. Arachnophobia is the term associated with this fear. Studies reveal that the fear of spiders in women is generally genetic. They are born with this fear!

A larva is the newly hatched, wingless, often worm-like form of insects. They look gross, no doubt about that! But apart from that, they have the ability to grow inside a person's skin eating it from the inside. Did you know that? Tell that to the boys the next time they make fun of you because you're scared.

Ohhhhh boy! Who wouldn't fear these ugly blood suckers? Bdellophobia-this is the correct word for the extreme fear of leeches. Apart from the fact that they look slimy and gross, they also can be very dangerous. One reason why they can be dangerous is because they could be carrying some deadly blood transmitted disease. The other reason is that they may suck out too much blood from your body, if you don't spot them in time.
