Usually I am okay with bugs, with the exception of spiders. I think it has to do with the legs. If something has more than 4 or 6 legs, I tend to not like it. Today we were in the backyard doing yardwork when I saw an uncountable number of legs sticking out of a beam on our patio roof. It was disgusting, and I might have freaked out a little bit. After further research, I found that it is a Geji, a household centipede that eats cockroaches and other bugs, and it is considered a good bug in Japan. I am still disgusted, and hope that I never find one inside the house.
