Take her to petting zoos, aquariums, etc. where she can have exposure to different animals and insects in a "safe" environment. Don't push her too hard, as that may increase her anxiety. Sometimes, it's not really being afraid of something but just thinking it's gross. Talk with her about her fears/anxieties and find out what's behind it to see if you can "solve" the problem in a simple way, like letting her wear gloves when she pets a dog or cat, or something like that.
