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.


Whats also scary is how big and fast these things are. If youve never seen one, they are nowhere near the size of your average ant

That's because they are not an ant. They are a wingless wasp. Check it out but I think I'm correct.

Those orange wosts with black wings is pretty high on my list. Mean bastards, but that spectracide pro will fold them up like a suitcase.

The puss caterpillar is the worst I assure you. It's like multiple broken bones and can last for days. It has killed people. One stung my dad on the neck and we had to rush him to the ER. He's broken bones, been shot, had numerous kidney stones and other injuries and told the ER nurse this was the worst. Another man in TX got stung on the neck as well and it caused brain damage.

That shite pushes their off buttons instantly. Last nest of winged a-holes I hit with that stuff ended with some of them still clinging to the nest because the stream didn't hit them to knock them off, but still killed them dead right there.

I was expecting the crab louse to make a showing.

OT and all.

I saw a very large wasp nest about 40’ in the top of a hackberry tree last week. Saw another in the same area last yr. and haven’t seen that before. Nest is probably 10-12” in diameter and completely black with wasps.

Damm!
Actually my father was a family doctor. I learned about these things when I was a kid. He used to get called every once and when someone got stung. He called them asp caterpillars.

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


indeed, as a teen in lake charles, i went back for a long foul and my glove went into a wasps nest in the apple tree.
Stung several times fast on the forearm.

Got home, thought i might die.

This long before epi pens and cell phones.

I did this when I was a kid. Playing with Tonka trucks in the yard and a cow ant comes near. Ooooh, pretty! Nailed me good when I picked it up. Hurt like hell and made me puke.

You can’t just stomp on a cow ant and kill it. You gotta get him under heel and grind that fricker into the dirt.

bullet ant

WTF? What in Holy glowing neon hell is this fricking thing? Is this thing fricking glowing? Was it spawned in the most deepest and poisonous depths of Chernobyl?
