I don't know what the big deal is... I've been bitten by a (black widow) spider on a Beech 1900D of Continental Express in Florida and needed a shot at the ER in Orlando later on. That didn't made the news.
But, as the report says; after the passengers got treatment, Ryanair did the right thing, removing the plane from service and debug it to be on the safe side. Who knows where the bugs came from, the passengers could have taken them on at the airport.
Nothing to do with Ryanair in my opinion, so carry on people, nothing to see here!

Good remark, makes my day...
Two passengers had irritaions on the legs. They could have got an insect before entering the airport, at the airport, or in the plane, either from another passenger who brought them with him, or from a passenger the flight before. I think this happens every day, and can happen to every airline.
