10 BUGS BITES With AGONIZING EFFECTS

2 views

Summer is here and that means most of us are looking forward to spending time outside. However, it’s also the time of year when all the bugs come out to play. You may get annoyed when your mosquito bites start to itch, but you should consider yourself lucky that you weren’t bitten by something more painful and devastating. In this video, we will show you the bullet ant, which is thought to have the most painful bite out of any insect. Then there is the brightly colored tarantula hawk, which is a wasp ready to deliver toxic venom to its victims. If you’re looking for a traditionally terrifying creature, we have the Amazonian giant centipede, which is painful enough just to look at, especially if you’re scared of bugs. Some dangerous creatures are more afraid of you than you are of them, but not the Sydney funnel-web spider which is known for its aggression and its devastating bite. In addition to bites that inflict pain, we’ll also show you some that can cause horrible diseases that leave people in agony. The tsetse fly can leave you with a parasite that causes the dreaded sleeping sickness, that is fatal if not cured. Ticks can cause more than just Lyme disease; they can also cause relapsing fever, which comes back just when you think you’ve finally gotten over it. The lone star tick can even make it so that you can no longer enjoy some of your favorite foods!
