    Only two options?

    For the most part, I like insects. I'll go with crawling, because the only flying parasite that comes to mind is mosquito. Parasites suck.

    Er, um, how did we go from insects in general to specifically parasites?

    Sorry, Mr. D. I just generally like insects, except parasites. Because they SUCK.

    Mosquitoes kill more people than any others. I don't know of any bad crawling ones except those that eat crops, such as the aphids.

    Flying insects are worse, I don't know of any crawling ones that are major vectors for disease. Mosquitoes and flies are killers - malaria, cholera, Ross River virus etc.

    You've forgotten about ticks and fleas. Remember the bubonic plague? Fleas!

    Ticks aren't insects, they're arachnids. I had forgotten fleas, but plague has been all but eradicated.

    I didn't know that about ticks!  Fleas are still heinous and disease causing, roaches, too.

    Roaches are actually useful in the prevention of disease - their favourite food is fleas.

    :-) The Crawling one of course because it's obviously lost at least some of its legs so can't walk, the poor wee creature. If it's Flying it's still in full health!
