It depends on your reaction upon inter action with the insects.if you experience enough anxiety upon viewing or otherwise coming into contact with an insect that he or she experiences a full-blown series of panic attacks. or may lose consciousness for a short period of time. Then you possible have insectophobia . but if you only don't like them, or dont like to touch them, that's normal.

By all means yes, because im not a professional and in these cases the opinion of a professional is important, so you can start to get help with your phobia, in case you actually have it.
