10 Most Dangerous Insects

It might not be the most tasteful of topics, especially after all the travelling we have been discussing, but I felt an urgent need to discuss this. I physically hate insects and I am sure you folks share the same feeling. This time around, we will be discussing ten fatally dangerous insects. You should know that there are around 900,000 different insects around the world. Please do not confuse these insects as being the deadliest animals, because that is a completely different category. It is just sad and really scary that something this small can actually kill you so when you encounter one of these bugs, be careful. I hope this list proves educative. Enjoy the read!


Their scientific name is Scutigera Coleoptrata. They originate from the Mediterranean and it is a very common bug. They look really weird, but they are actually good because they eat other insects and even some spiders. They are responsible for many deaths every year. Their bite will not hurt a normal person, but if you are allergic to the venom they produce, then you will be in serious trouble. These tiny things bite rarely, but it is never too bad to be careful now is it?


Locusts - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
They are from the family of grasshoppers. They are not that deadly to humans really. They feed on plants and crops. They attack in swarms of several thousand insects. They are not trouble to humans in terms of death, but they do pose a financial threat considering the fact that they destroy millions of acres worth of crop ever year. They can also case plague. Locusts were the eighth during the Plagues of Egypt.


If you are stung by the bite of this thing, it is probably okay. You will not require a doctor or any treatment for that matter. It is said, however, that the young and old are very susceptible to a Siafu’s bite. It causes around 20 to 50 deaths every year. They will probably not bother you much, but if you destroy their colony or bug it, you are in for some trouble. They are very similar to ants and they live in colonies of around 20 million ants. These ants also have very strong jaws (just an added piece of information).


Wasps and bees are something you will find absolutely anywhere. Anywhere with flowers, or anywhere it smell sweet. If you are not allergic to a wasp sting, then it is okay but if it is otherwise, then you have a problem. Around 53 people die to wasps because of allergic reactions to their sting. People with allergies need to stay clear because if you are stung you can go into anaphylactic shock and then can lead you to die.


Giant Hornet - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
You probably did see a hornet at least once in your life. They don’t seem that scary because they are usually not that big. But the Asian Giant Hornet is on a whole other level. It has a wing span of three inches and is around 2 inches in length. The mere sting is 1/4th of an inch. Around 70 people die every year because of these things. Their venom can damage soft tissue, cause discomfort and produce an odor that will attract other giant hornets. I would not want to be near one, ever.


Fire Ants - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
They are usually found in sand or soil. They feed on plants, crickets and other smaller insects. Their sting is very venomous and you can’t just provoke them and get away without a bite. Their sting feels like that particular body part is on fire which earns them their name as well. A few small stings from these insects can be cured, but if you are swarmed by a huge group of Fire Ants, chances are you will not live. They cause around 150 deaths every day and since they feed on plants, they destroy crops and cause damages worth millions of dollars.


Tse Tse Fly - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
These tiny guys feed on blood and that’s how they spread the disease by the name of trypanosomiases in humans. They bite you and pass it on through their mouths. These flies live in Africa and they kill around 250 to 300 thousand victims in a year. The disease they transmit is known as the Sleeping Sickness and it if is not treated immediately or timely, you necessary bodily functions will stop working and it is pretty much Game Over. There are around 34 different species of these flies and they look just like normal houseflies, so be careful and be careful again.


Bees - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
This is what you need to know about your everyday bee. They will not feel the need to sting you if you let them be. Unless you do something really stupid such as throwing a rock at their hive, they will not bother you. Besides, the poor things die once they sting. But the Africanized or Killer Bees, they are they are the problem. They will swarm over their victims in huge numbers and sting him/her/it to death. That happens with the slightest provocation. Stare at their nest and shout out, see what happens. Although, I would really advise you not to.


Rat Fleas - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
Fleas are no bigger than your nail but they do carry harmful and at times, fatal, germs. Most famous one of those is the Yersinia Pestis Bacteria. This particular bacterium has been causing death in Europe since the fourteenth century and is known as ‘Black Death’. It killed nearly 350 to 375 million people between the years 1348 and 1350 (YES, two years). You can find fleas in a dog or a cat but none of those are as deadly as the fleas found on a rat. They are so very small (1/6th or 1/8th of an inch) and can still cause millions to die.


Anopheles Mosquito - Ten Most Dangerous Insects
I hate mosquitos, they are irritating, they buzz and they cause irritation. Besides, they feed on blood and that’s more than enough reason for me. They are disgusting and they lay eggs on stagnant waters. That can be handled; the problem arises when you come across a disease-carrying mosquito. They can cause you serious illness and in some cases death. The most common virus carried by these mosquitoes is Malaria and now another disease is coming up called ‘Dengue’. Please protect yourself from these mosquitos.
