Though entomologists might think they're cute, bugs are creepy to the rest of us. They're multi-legged, horrid-looking monsters, numerous beyond count, and they're out to get us. Most chilling of all is their single-minded dedication to the task at hand. Intent upon invasion, they will keep coming. Though hundreds of their numbers may fall during the assault, thousands — nay, millions — of their dedicated comrades will continue the onslaught until one side or the other wins. There is no negotiation in this war, no chance to take things only so far and no farther.
Vile, unthinking, and unfeeling monsters that they are, far too many insects are also venomous and/or nearly impossible to kill. It's one against the many, intelligence against sheer numbers; and we greatly fear that we will ultimately be the losers.
