🐛 Bug


Crawly, Insect, Pest, Wriggles, Irritation, Annoyance, Transformation, Nature, Garden Insect

🐛 Meaning: A full-length profile of a bug with a cylindrical, greenish body with darker lines along the body and tiny legs of the same color. The character has an orangish face and a pair of black eyes and antennas.

The 🐛 Bug emoji refers to a caterpillar or a worm rather than a bug, however, different platforms have different versions of it. This emoji signifies the path towards change and transformation, the ability to eat through stuff, and a really tiny and wriggly stature.

How and When to Use the 🐛 Bug Emoji

  • If you’re on the way to goofily destroy something or someone, you can use 🐛 in such contexts (because bugs can be on their way to absolutely no good). For instance, “I’m going to destroy you with this one ugly picture of yours. Bwahahah 🐛”.
  • If someone or something’s been ‘bugging’ you, you can use 🐛 to indicate that irritant, like “Oh man. Here we go again. He never tires or what 🐛”.
  • The 🐛 emoji does not look like a caterpillar on all platforms. So, if the platform you’re using shows this little guy as a caterpillar, you can use it in captions or quotes that speak about change and transformation along with the 🦋 Butterfly emoji.
  • Use 🐛 while posting pictures of bugs. It can be picks from your camera roll or even a repost. This can be done even while sharing bug memes, funny bug videos, newsworthy content, etc.
