Bad Luck Insects You Don’t Need


Well, here it is upon us again. That superstitious day that only comes around 2 or 3 times a year. Yes, Friday the 13th. Wether you believe in luck or not, the day always causes some to stop and think, is it because it’s Friday the 13th?

Folklore claims that certain insects could perform an action and control our fate. We are definitely not Paraskevidekatriaphobics, people who are afraid of superstitions, but we couldn’t help but find some of these old tales amusing.

Bees were once believed to be messengers to the gods and therefore when someone died, the bee hives would be shaken and carry the message of death to them. Hopefully, the person who does the hive shaking was a fast runner!

Did you know that back in the day it was believed that if someone found a spider crawling on them, it was considered good luck? Or if you killed a spider it would bring you bad luck? Obviously they have never seen Arachnaphobia!

Good thing BugMaster doesn’t believe in such theories and is happy to come handle all your pest needs, so you can stop worrying and get back to relaxing.
