3 of the nastiest insects known to mankind till today!

The Japanese Giant Hornet

As human beings we have a strange aversion to insects (except in some cultures where people actually eat them) this is for a good reason. Insects are really creepy, and even though most are completely harmless there are some really-really nasty ones that completely justify this animosity we feel towards such arthropods. Here is a list of what we consider the worst bugs ever to crawl the earth (or fly as the case may be). They have been placed in ascending order of nastiness by a panel of expert bug haters:

3) The Japanese Giant Hornet- As it’s name suggests, this wasp is huge (4.5cm long) and endemic only to Japan (which is fortunate for the rest of the world). These hornets are able to kill up to 40 bees a minute (each) and a group of 30 hornets can wipe out an entire bee colony within a few hours. They feed on the bees as well as their larvae and honey. The giant hornet has a potent venom (though not the most potent wasp venom out there) but is more dangerous than other wasps because it injects a relatively large amount of it. It is considered to be the deadliest animal in Japan, even more than snakes or bears (but excluding Godzilla of course) killing up to forty people a year. (Read: 5 creatures people actually believe existed)

2) Army Ants- There are several species of army ants. All of them have no fixed nest (unlike other ants), they also have larger colonies (up to 15 million individuals). The army ants are a force to be reckoned with, and sweep through the forest floor like apocalyptic horde killing and eating anything that can’t get out of the way in time. The ants prey on animals much bigger that them by literally engulfing them and tearing them to shreds. They prey on anything they can catch from insects to spiders and even small vertebrates.

1) Mosquitoes- These are by far the worst creatures to ever exist, except for humans of course. They aren’t much to look at, they lack any venom or a powerful bite yet kill more people than any other species. Mosquitoes have killed millions upon millions of people through all of history with diseases like malaria and dengue and continue to do so to this day in third world countries. All our attempts to eliminate mosquitoes have failed and these creatures continue to hound us like we’re KFC at lunch time.

    NOT MADE BY NATURE! Just because something exists in nature doesn’t mean it was invented or made by Nature. If all the chemicals necessary to make a cell were left to themselves, “Mother Nature” would have no ability to organize them into a cell. It requires an already existing cell to bring about another cell. The cell exists and reproduces in nature but Nature didn’t invent or design it! Nature didn’t originate the cell or any form of life. An intelligent power outside of nature had to be responsible.

    Natural laws can explain how an airplane or living cell works, but it’s irrational to believe that mere undirected natural laws can bring about the origin of an airplane or a cell. Once you have a complete and living cell then the genetic program and biological machinery exist to direct the formation of more cells, but how could the cell have originated naturally when no directing code and mechanisms existed in nature? All of the founders of modern science believed in God. Read my Internet article: HOW FORENSIC SCIENCE REFUTES ATHEISM

    Only evolution within “kinds” is genetically possible (i.e. varieties of dogs, cats, etc.), but not evolution across “kinds” (i.e. from sea sponge to human). How did species survive if their vital tissues, organs, reproductive systems were still evolving? Survival of the fittest would actually have prevented evolution across kinds! Read my Internet article: WAR AMONG EVOLUTIONISTS! (2nd Edition). I discuss: Punctuated Equilibria, “Junk DNA,” genetics, mutations, natural selection, fossils, genetic and biological similarities between species.

    Natural selection doesn’t produce biological traits or variations. It can only “select” from biological variations that are possible and which have survival value. The real issue is what biological variations are possible, not natural selection. Only limited evolution, variations of already existing genes and traits are possible. Nature is mindless and has no ability to design and program entirely new genes for entirely new traits.

    What about genetic and biological similarities between species? Genetic information, like other forms of information, cannot happen by chance, so it is more logical to believe that genetic and biological similarities between all forms of life are due to a common Designer who designed similar functions for similar purposes. It doesn’t mean all forms of life are biologically related! Also, “Junk DNA” isn’t junk. These “non-coding” segments of DNA have recently been found to be vital in regulating gene expression (i.e. when, where, and how genes are expressed).
