    I was never as afraid of insects as you are but I have learned to accept them.

    I moved to rural Brazil nearly 3 years ago and insects of all kinds are here.
    They are amazing creatures when you stop to watch them. I used to hate wasps for example and thought they served no purpose whatsoever other than to frighten me. Now I watch them taking caterpillars back to their nests for their unborn to have food when it hatches out. 

    Everything has a role. I have a greater tolerance of all insects and encourage anything that will eat anything that may bite me like mosquitoes.

    Try to overcome this nightmares.Think if you are not going to kill them why those tiny insects make any harm to you?God has created them for any cause so don't make them as your nightmares.

    We all have phobias, and, although they are often irrational, they are frightening just the same. No one should belittle the fact. To overcome your fear, first ask yourself what you are afraid of and what is the worst thing that can happen. It may be like dismantling a wall brick by brick, but you can eventually get over it. Good luck!
