The 10 Most Dangerous Insects on Earth

These aren’t your average creepy crawly spiders and ants! While my friends and family think I’m a HUGE baby because I hyperventilate and jump up on the couch at the sight of most bugs… all y’all are about to meet the insects that will give you absolute nightmares.

#10 Kissing Bug

Kissing bugs, also known as assassin bugs, love to get on your skin and take a big large bite. The problem with this is that if there is fecal matter on its mouth when it bites you, you will contract the Chagas disease. This little parasitic disease won’t cause much problem until 10-30 years after the bite but at that time you will suffer heart failure.

#9 Fleas

Just because it’s common doesn’t mean it’s not dangerous. Remember that little thing called the BUBONIC PLAGUE? These rat fleas killed 60% of the population of Europe and are still

around today. They are a perfect carrier for disease between animals and human animals. Considering the death count they’ve caused, they have earned their spot on the list.

#8 Bullet Ants

Bullet ants are massive scary looking creatures who work quickly with a hive mind. Their bite is described asexcruciatingly painful, similar to being shot by a bullet. Not only that but the pain can last a full day without respite.


#7 Bot Fly

The bot fly is just a super nasty nasty bug. I have put my poor anxiety ridden self through the ringer searching for dangerous bugs and I already feel creepy crawlies under my skin. THIS BUG is where I nearly went over the edge… mostly because of the video. Knowing the fact that the boy fly can lay its eggs on your skin so that they can burrow into your skin to hatch, is nothing compared to watching it. The flies eventually do hatch causing severe infection of the skin and weird infection. If you want to watch a video of them pulling the larvae out prepare to throw up.


#6 Africanized Honey Bee

These bees are exactly like your average honey bee but with a different mindset—making them not like your average honey bee. Over the years, this breed of bee has evolved to protect itself against predators like the honey badger with deadly force. Every bee can pump 10x the amount of venom into you than the average honey bee and they are also ten times more aggressive. In recent years, humans have become predators who threaten the Africanized bee. Just stay away if you believe you have come across this flying attacker because he’ll bring his hive minded friends.
