A woman is unable to leave her house, or eat lettuce because of the fear of the hairy creatures, called caterpillars.
It has been reported that the 45 year old lady, Jane Cohen, is having a phobia of the tiny creatures and because of it, she ignores leaving house once seeing some on the gate.
She says that once she was on her diner table when she saw the caterpillar and as a result she was unable to eat lettuce for a whole year.
In a talk, she says that initially she thought it would go, but it has become worst and worst.
Jane has no idea when the fear of hairy creatures began.
