10 Most Dangerous Insects


 

 

5. FIRE ANTS

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.

 

4. TSE TSE FLY

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.

 

3. BEES

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.

 

2. RAT FLEAS

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.

 

1. ANOPHELES MOSQUITO

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.
