A new study from an insect control company estimated that we eat, on average, 140,000 'bug bits' every year. Mealworm, maggot, and roach pieces are found in everyday foods like chocolate, coffee, and wheat flour.
Americans eat, on average, “two pounds of flies, maggots and other bugs each year," according to a Scientific American blog.
Myth: You unknowingly swallow an average of four live spiders in your sleep each year. Fact: This very widespread urban legend has no basis in fact. It exists in various forms, another common version is that you swallow an average of 20 in your lifetime.
This may sound bizarre, but it's not uncommon for insect fragments—including their heads, bodies, and legs—to accidentally end up in the food we eat. Bugs are constantly present during the food manufacturing process, from the field where the food is grown to the storage and transit of the food to your grocery store.
"Do insects urinate? They cannot afford to lose much water when they eliminate wastes from their bodies and thus do not urinate. They eliminate a waste called uric acid that doesn't contain much water. Insects that live in water do not have a water conservation problem.
Luckily for all of us, the “fact” that people swallow eight spiders in their sleep yearly isn't true. The myth flies in the face of both spider and human biology, which makes it highly unlikely that a spider would ever end up in your mouth.
There are several reasons why spiders don't bother us in our sleep. Foremost, we're extremely large compared with spiders, so they tend to view us merely as part of their landscape. These sounds create vibrations to which spiders are extremely sensitive. As a result, they likely would do all they could to avoid us.
"Daddy-Longlegs are one of the most poisonous spiders, but their fangs are too short to bite humans"
If the spiders run towards you, then this means a change will come and—because the spider is coming to you—that the change will revolve around you. However, if the spiders you see are consistently moving away from you then that means the change will affect somebody else near to you.
Scientists think that cockroaches fart once every 15 minutes. While there's no concrete number, they believe it's at least once a day. Some may fart more often than others, depending on what they eat. Cockroaches produce methane gas due to their consumption of decaying matter, rotting wood, and leftover food.
According to Rick Vetter of the University of California at Riverside, the daddy long-legs spider has never harmed a human, and there is no evidence that they are dangerous to humans.
In general, wolf spiders aren't aggressive, so they'll only bite if they feel threatened. If you get bitten by a wolf spider, the area will have two marks from the spider's fangs. It will be red and may be swollen and painful. If your condition gets worse, call your doctor immediately right away.
