Dr. Jonathan A. Coddington, Associate Director of Research and Collections, examines vials of preserved Brown Recluse Spiders at the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in Washington, Wednesday. It's that time of year when the bugs emerge to bug us. Some can pose real threats - Lyme disease from tiny ticks, West Nile virus from mosquitoes, or life-threatening allergic reactions to bee stings. But most bug bites in this country are an itchy nuisance. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster)
