There are more than a million species of insects in this world. They make more than 50% of the total population of the living organisms in the world. Most of the insects are harmless, but some are really deadly. This post contains the list of some of the bugs, which are really dangerous.
10 Bullet Ants
Paraponera Clavata or Bullet Ants are the largest members of the ant species. They are called bullet ants because of the pain cause by their sting. Victims described the pain caused by their sting is similar to being shot. And to make it worse, the pain remains for 24 hours.
Fleas are a kind of parasite that sucks blood from animals. Their size is so small that they can be considered almost invisible, but can drink about 10 times of their own body size not only this, they are also responsible for spreading various diseases across the world.
Another parasitic insect from which you should stay away from. Like fleas, tick too feed on the blood of the mammals and also infects millions of people around the world with lime disease.If not treated in the beginning, the victim may even die from it, if not will suffer from the pain for years. Early symptoms include fever and headache, like a normal fever. As the time pass, the victim start to face unbearable in the joints and later heart problem.
You know what’s the worst part??? Lime is hard to diagnose. Not an insect you’d want to stay with.
7 Vampire Bugs
Just like the name suggest, they too feed on the blood of the vertebrate blood (which includes humans too) but don’t make them a vampire, instead give them chagas disease which fades away its initial symptoms but stays inside a person, if not treated, may kill the infected person. About 12,000 people die of the chagas disease every year (estimated by WHO).
6 Japanese Giant Hornet
Japanese giant hornet are the largest of its species and can grow more than 2 inches in size. These hornets are mostly found in the rural areas of Japan. They normally don’t harm humans, but can be very aggressive if threatened. Their sting releases a venom which directly affects the central nervous system which may result in death too.
5 Africanized Bee
Africanized honey bee, also known as “the killer bee”, is a hybrid of western honey bees and European honey bees. Unlike other species of honey bees, they are extremely aggressive and attacks intruders much faster than other honey bees. They even chase intruders and have even killed more than 1000 humans and also some horse and other animals too.
4 House Centipede
These centipedes are not bad, they take care of our home by eating other insects like cockroach and other insects. They have a pair of claws with venom in them which they use to kill their prey. Their bite is also considered very hazardous to human and it is very painful and also causes swelling which lasts for days. (I really hate them!)
3 Brazilian Wandering Spider
Would you like to stay with a spider which was labelled as World’s most venomous spider by the Genius Book Of World Records? Don’t get freak out, maybe you are sitting next to them. They don’t wave nets, instead walk on the floor at night in search of food and hide in dark area during the day.
… Well… just think how many dark places are there in your house.
2 Tsetse Fly
Again a blood sucker! Tsetse are large flies (which also bites!!) which lives on the blood of vertebrate animals. They are mostly found in the African region and are famous for causing sleeping sickness in human which is very fatal disease. Though it can be treated, only if diagnosed early.
Mosquitoes are the most dangerous insect species of all. They spread diseases especially malaria which kills millions of people every year. Then there are other deadly diseases like dengue, yellow fever which they spread along with malaria.
