    8. Tarantula Hawk Wasp
    If tarantulas aren't your thing, you might make friends with a tarantula hawk wasp. But if you ask me, I’ll take the tarantula! These wasps are so feared by tarantulas that when the spiders feel threatened by the wasps, they rear up and bear their fangs at the sight of them. But the wasp is in no danger and in fact, it is more feared than the spider. See, told you!

    7. Harvester Ant
    Mostly found in the United States and Mexico, the Red Harvester Ant has what is believed to be the most toxic insect venom in the world. When comparing body weight, Harvester Ants can pack more venom in their bodies than bees, wasps or any other ants. This venom is used to immobilize or kill their prey and to even defend themselves against attacks by other predators.

    6. Japanese Giant Hornet
    Twice the size of normal hornets, the Japanese giant hornet is so big that it is known as the “giant sparrow bee”, so about the size of a small bird! One of the deadliest insects on the planet, these hornets live in cooperative hives and are highly effective predators. The Japanese hornet has five eyes, with three smaller eyes on the top of its head and two large compound eyes on either side.

    5. Kissing Bug
    Typically found in Mexico, Central America and South America, the kissing bug got its nickname because they tend to bite people around their mouth. And it’s not just their bite that’s annoying but they actually carry Chagas disease. Now they are spreading and are becoming much more of a problem in the United States.

    4. Bot Flies
    Even though flies may not seem to be very dangerous, the botfly does pose a risk to not only animals but humans. Bot flies are known for laying their eggs on mosquitoes, who inject the egg into their host as they feed. Although rare, humans have become infected by such bites, with one report of a man infested with larvae after being bitten by mosquitoes in Costa Rica.

    3. Wheel Bugs
    Wheel bugs, the largest of the 150 or so species of assassin bugs in North America, are a type of ambush bug. Grey in colour, they measure about 1 1/4 inches long. Their name comes from the wheel or cog-like crest that goes over the top of their thorax.

    2. Bullet Ant
    Measuring up to 1 inch long, bullet ants are native to the rain forests of South America. The largest ant in the world, their sting is 30 times more painful than a bee sting. Usually quite docile toward humans, they normally only sting when defending themselves, but that doesn't mean it doesn't hurt like a biatch!

    1. Tsetse Fly
    If you thought a bite from an ant or wasp was bad, let me introduce you to the Tsetse Fly. With tiny serrations in its mouth, this nasty little bug will saw into your skin in order to get to your blood. Some species of Tsetse Fly can also transmit something called “sleeping disease”, which isn’t as peaceful as it sounds.
