If you’re like most Americans, you’ve probably googled your fears at least once or twice.

 

Of course, sometimes there’s a valid reason for doing so. Homeowners, for example, might google their household fears to find useful information about a fear: how to prevent it, what to do if it happens, or how to keep it from happening again.

 

Apparently, mold is the scariest thing out there. In the study, 10 states feared mold the most—11 states if you include black mold. Carbon monoxide poisoning comes in a distant second, appearing as the most common fear in just six states.

 

Ohio residents googled ‘bugs in my house’ the most.

 

Other fears shared by multiple states include robbery, peeping toms, and fall prevention.
