Top 3 Most Painful Insect Stings

I bet most people in their lifetime has gotten stung by something. Whether it’s a bee or maybe an ant, most people have been stung (well except me, I’ve never been stung by anything) at least once. Believe it or not, there is a sting out there 30 times more painful than a bee sting. This blog post is about the most painful bug stings in the world.

3: Paper Wasp

The paper wasp gets its name from the nests they build that looks like it’s made out of paper. Paper wasps are not aggressive and will only attack if their nest is threatened. Like any wasp or bee, they eat nectar, but they also eat caterpillars, flies, and beetle larvae

I can say I have seen one before and even though they have a stinger about 7 mm long, you get distracted by how pretty it actually is. With it nice orange wings and black head and body, how can you notice its stinger? Well, I suggest not to get too close to them unless you want to get stung. They are not that aggressive, but I’ll still keep my distance, just to be safe.

1: Bullet Ant

Please for your own safety, stay away from this bug, unless you want to know what it’s like to be shot. Their sting not only feels like you’ve been shot, but the pain lasts for 24 hours. It still gets worse, when they sting you the venom from the sting attacks your central nervous system, the spot where you got stung will become temporally paralyzed.

I hope you enjoyed this blog post. If you live somewhere near these bugs I wish you good luck.
