But do you know that a tiny little bug has a higher percentage to kill you more than a serial killer would That some insects rub out more humans than they die from homicide cases And that with only a couple of bites, you might be bidding your loved ones goodbye Well, if you want to find out, here's a list of ten most dangerous bugs that will kill you. Now, don't be scared yet; not all of them live around you. Number 10: Kissing Bug While their name might strike you as gentle, make no mistake; these bugs are nowhere near being affectionate. Because unlike humans, a kiss from a “kissing bug” may as well be your last. They come in black or brown with colorful markings on their abdomen, feed on nothing but blood, and are well-known for biting humans on the face, particularly in the eyes and mouths Although a bite from these bugs will only cause mild pains from redness to itching, their poop is what you should really fear. Because when kissing bugs bite on your face, they rub their feces on the wound. This muck, however, spreads a highly lethal infection called the Chagas Disease, which kills about 11,000 people every year. Though the risk of being affected by Chagas in most parts of the United States is still low, it's a different story for those living in tropical Americas like Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, where about 300,000 people stand infected. Luckily, there is a high chance that an adult will survive; children, however, especially under the age of 7, are liable to die. Number 9: Tarantula Hawk It's a funny fact that these animals, despite their names, are neither birds nor spiders. Yet, they are christened after one of the most ferocious examples of these two. And that's because, they hunt down tarantulas like a hawk would hunt its prey, making tarantula hawks one of the deadliest and most fearless wasps in the world. They lead a solitary life in burrows on almost all the continents except for Europe and Antarctica. Regardless that tarantula hawks are relatively small when compared to a tarantula spider, they would knock down the poisonous arachnid, paralyzing them with a highly potent venom. Although this dauntless behavior is not to secure the tarantulas as food, the big spider spends the rest of its life as a maternity bed for the wasps. While these bugs don't usually pose a threat to humans, they turn aggressive when disturbed, striking with a sting so painful that some of its victims would prefer suicide. Those who withstood the pain liken it to the one you get from walking over flaming charcoals with a three-inch nail embedded in your heel. When stung by a tarantula hawk, experts would typically advise the victims to lie down and start screaming because they are likely to run off and hurt themselves. Number 8: Lonomia Obliqua Also known as giant silkworm moth or assassin caterpillar, Lonomia obliqua is the world's most dangerous caterpillar. Although, it might sound a little cop-out to you harking that caterpillars can kill without swallowing them. Like the worst they can do is give you a red skin or perhaps a terrible itching, right. But, “Lonomia obliqua” is not of your common caterpillars. In fact, they are only found in a few states in Brazil, Uruguay, Paraguay, and Argentina. These bugs may look creepily beautiful, being covered with bristles shaped like spears. However, deep within those pretty covers is a potent anticoagulant venom, which at a single touch is strong enough to cause severe injuries. If your exposed body parts say arm, brushes their skin, each needle delivers multiple doses of these toxins, which spreads throughout your body, resulting in vomiting, massive blood leakage into the brain, and in most cases, death. What makes them much deadlier is their ability to blend almost perfectly with the bark of local trees where most victims put their body parts unaware. And as of today, about a minimum of 500 deaths have been reported from Lonomia attacks. Number 7: Maricopa Harvester Ants With a venom reported to be 20 times more potent than a honey bee's and 35 times more toxic than a western diamondback rattlesnake, the Maricopa Harvester ants stand as the most toxic, venomous insect in the world. They are commonly found in Arizona, where they grow between 1 to 5cm depending on their age. Aside from their extraordinarily potent venoms, these ants can also deliver a bite and a sting at the same time, with some of them remain attached to the bite spot, providing venoms into the victims, time and over again
