Top 5 Most Painful Insect Bites. This video shows the 5 most painful bites that insects can inflict. These painful insect bites must be terrible and you really want to avoid getting bit by these insects!
5. Red Harvester Ant
Red harvester ants are adorably industrious, foraging for seeds on the forest floor and hoarding them in underground larders. However, they can be downright aggressive when defending their stash. Their sting ranks alongside paper wasps in intensity and is “bold and unrelenting, like somebody using a drill to excavate your ingrown toenail,”
4. Amazon Giant Centipede
These carnivorous centipedes, which can grow up to a foot long, need a potent bite to kill large prey like mice and bats. Centipede bites produce a burning pain that hurts for a long time. People are usually whining and limping around a good 12 hours later.
3. Paper Wasp
Paper wasps are 0.7 to 1.0 inch (1.8 to 2.5 cm) long wasps that gather fibers from dead wood and plant stems, which they mix with saliva, and use to construct water-resistant nests made of gray or brown papery material. When you get stung it has a distinctly bitter aftertaste, like spilling a beaker of hydrochloric acid on a paper cut.
2. Japanese Giant Hornet
It is the world's largest hornet, native to temperate and tropical Eastern Asia. Each year in Japan, the human death toll caused by Asian giant hornet stings is around 30 to 40. Its stinger injects an especially potent venom that contains–like many bee and wasp venoms–a cytolytic peptide that can badly damage tissue. They are also known to chase after people in groups. The pictures really tell the story…
1. Bullet Ant
Paraponera clavata is a species of ant, commonly known as the lesser giant hunting ant, or bullet ant, named after its powerful and potent sting. It inhabits humid lowland rainforests from Nicaragua and the extreme east of Honduras south to Paraguay. The bullet ant is called hormiga veinticuatro or "24 (hour) ant" by the locals, referring to the 24 hours of pain that follow after being stung.
