And here they are, the top 10 worst insect stings of all time!
1. Sweat Bee
Light, ephemeral, almost fruity (fruity?). A tiny spark has singed a single hair on your arm
2. Fire Ant
Sharp, sudden and mildly alarming. Like walking across a shag carpet and reaching for the light switch (this is presumably through static)
3. Bullhorn Acacia Ant
A rare, piercing, elevated sort of pain. Someone has fired a staple into your cheek (YIKES!)
4. Bald Faced Hornet
Rich, hearty, slightly crunchy (I like this, Crunchy!). Similar to getting your hand mashed in a door
5. Yellow Jacket
Hot and smoky, almost irreverent. Imagine W.C. Fields extinguishing a cigar on your tongue.
6. Honey Bee and European Hornet
Like a matchead that flips off and burns on your skin.
7. Red Harvester Ant
Bold and unrelenting. Somebody is using a drill to excavate your ingrown toenail! (Say what now???)
8. Paper Wasp
9. Tarantula Hawk Wasp
Blinding, fierce, shockingly electric. A running hair drier has been dropped into your bubble bath! (Yes but if that had happened I'd be dead now wouldn't I?)
10. Bullet Ant
Pure, intense, brilliant pain! Like fire-walking over flaming charcoal with a 3-inch nail in your heel! (That's gonna feel sore in the morning)
Hope that helps you the next time you get stung! Although...I would always say treat animal with respect and avoid getting stung at all!
