  1. Entomophobia

    Entomophobia is a common fear of or aversion to insects and similar arthropods, and even other terres bugs. This condition causes a slight to severe emotional reaction, a form of anxiety or a panic attack. It is a particular case of specific phobias, all of which have basically the same causes and similar choices of treatments. However, people often mix up aversion and phobia. Aversion to insects is constructed, much like other aspects of culture. On the other hand, phobia is not instinctive. Aversion, however, can turn into phobia, which is irrational and immense fear. Among notable cases are apiphobia and myrmecophobia. The symptoms associated with this phobia are similar to the symptoms manifested with many other irrational fears. An entomophobic is likely to experience enough anxiety upon viewing or otherwise coming into contact with an insect that he or she experiences a full-blown series of panic attacks. With extreme cases, the individual may lose consciousness for a short period of time. Uncontrollable weeping or a strong desire to flee from the area are also common signs that indicate an individual is suffering with this particular phobia.
