Trillions of cicadas have been invading the U.S., but they’re still not annoying enough to make a new list of the 10 most HATED bugs in America.
According to the study, 7 out of 10 people say they can’t sleep if they know there’s a bug in the house.
We lose 36 hours of sleep a year because of worrying about bugs.
We’d pay an average of $1,974 to never see a bug in our home again.
Here are the ten bugs we hate most:
2. Spiders. (Even though they’re not really bugs, they’re arachnids.)
6. Ticks. (They’re also technically arachnids.)
10. Centipedes. (Nerd alert: They’re not insects either, they’re arthropods.)
Surprisingly, houseflies didn’t make the list.
Only 4% of people said cicadas are one of the bugs they hate most.
