    Default worm vs bug

    What is the difference between "worm" and "bug"? The former seems to be the ones under the earth, while the latter is a general one, not limited to certain areas. I think it's location difference.

    A bug, in your context, would be an insect or similar creature - e.g. a centipede.
    See:
    Bug - definition of Bug by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    "Bug" is a general term referring to insects and spiders and other creepy crawlies. "Worms" don't have legs.
