Bugs give us the willies.
We cringe when we watch “Fear Factor.” We close our eyes during “Arachnophobia” and quiver in our seats during that scene in “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.” (You know, the one where Harrison Ford and Kate Capshaw are covered in thousands of crawling, slithering insects? Ick.)
When we see a spider crawling down the wall or spy a mealworm in our pantry, we freak. Papillion-La Vista schools recalled food from nine district elementary schools and St. Columbkille Catholic School on Wednesday after sawtoothed grain beetles were found in soup. School officials sent boxes of noodles back to their distributor.
