The most painful insect stings/bites in the world.
So, the Schmidt Pain index has 4 levels, with level 1 being the least painful. Its got some every day stings on it, and some nightmare from hell stings.


Level 1 consists of the sweat bee and the fire ant.

"Light, ephemereal, almost fruity
. A tiny spark has singed a hair on your arm."

Level 2 consists of the honeybee and jack jumper ant.

"The oven mitt had a hole in it as you pulled the cookies from the oven."

Jack Jumper Ant:

Level 3 consists of the Yellow Paper Wasp and the Florida Harvester ant.

"Bold and unrelenting. Someone is using a power drill to remove your ingrown toenail."

Florida Harvester Ant:

Think that sounds bad? Lol.

Level 4 consists of the bullet ant and the tarantula hawk.

"Blinding, fierce, shockingly electric. A running hair dryer has just been dropped into your bubble bath."

Bullet Ant:

Tarantula Hawk Wasp :

Nope, its not the spider. Its the thing fricking dueling the spider for the rights to its corpse.


And a bonus round for things that also qualify for level 1, but not quite on a bullet ant level..

Red Velvet Ant (cow killer):

Absolutely horrifying. They hurt like hell and are common in the southeast. Takes less than 10 of them to kill a fully grown cow (wives tale). Only truly dangerous one on this list that ive seen personally.

There's some yahoo on the internet that has the goal of getting stung by all these things and putting it on YouTube.

The stuff like the bullet ant is wildly entertaining.

I feel like the puss caterpillar should be on this list. One of those son of bitches got me the other day and it felt like I broke a bone!

There’s never been a death attributed to a brown recluse yet people hype them. FWIW

shite I feel like the common wasps we have in Louisiana pack a mean punch. I can’t imagine something worse than that.

Been stung/bitten by the sweat bee, honey bee, fire ant, and the Florida Harvester.


Actually fell back first into a Harvester colony near an old baseball field when I like 9 or 10 , was tagged a couple dozen times. Hurt like a thousand hells, had to go to the ER.


Didn't cry tho, acted like a Goddamn MAN, and punched a bear in the face, and impregnated the nurse.

So one of these made their cocoon in an old tennis shoe. I put it on and smashed it. Brown juice on my sock. Didnt think nothing of it. Foot swelled up and itched like crazy for a week. Sucked bad.

Aren't Cow Killer Ants actually flightless wasps?
