Researchers say six in ten people reported being confident in their ability to “identify common bugs.”
But, the study found more men claimed to be “very knowable.”
The study also found 64 percent of people are fearful of insects and it was also men who were more terrified of the creepy crawlies than women with 32 percent saying they were “very scared” of bugs compared to 22 percent of females who were afraid.
