What is Shakespeare emphasizing about the fairies in the following lines:

Newts and blindworms, do no wrong, come not near our Fairy Queen.
And there the snake throws her enameled skin, Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in.


That the fairies are afraid of worms and snakes which can be used against them to keep you safe from their spells.


That Titania doesn't like creepy crawly things which is why Oberon calls for them to be near her when she wakes so that she will fall in love with what she is most afraid of.


That the fairies are tiny creatures small enough to use a snakeskin as a blanket and be endangered by small lizards and worms.


That Titania and her fairies don't trust anything, except other fairies, to be near them when they are sleeping, which is ironic since it is Oberon who harms Titania through the enchantment of the love juice.


That the fairies must constantly remind the other creatures, such as newts, blindworms, and snakes, of their place beneath the fairies in the hierarchy of the fairy realm.
