What are the worst insect bites?

A young man named Justin Schmidt (http://justinschmidt.theworldrace.org/ his blog) has written a list of what they are, for him, the most annoying insect bites and painful. Classifying a maximum of 4 points. Let's see:

10. SWEAT BEE

abeja

RATING: 1.0
SCHMIDT SAYS: Light, ephemeral, almost fruity. A tiny spark has singed a single hair on your arm.


9. FIRE ANT

hormis


RATING: 1.2
SCHMIDT SAYS: Sharp, mildly alarming. Like walking across a shag carpet and reaching for the light switch

8. BULLHORN ACACIA ANT

RATING: 1.8
SCHMIDT SAYS: A rare, piercing, elevated sort of pain. Someone has fired a staple into your cheek.

7. BALD-FACED HORNET

RATING: 2.0
SCHMIDT SAYS: Rich, hearty, slightly crunchy. Similar to getting your hand mashed in a revolving door

6. YELLOWJACKET


avis


RATING: 2.0
 SCHMIDT SAYS: Hot and smoky, almost irreverent. Imagine W. C. Fields extinguishing a cigar on your tongue.

5. HONEYBEE

abeja




RATING: 2.0
SCHMIDT SAYS: The sensation is like a matchhead that flips off and burns on your skin.


4. RED HARVESTER ANT

hormiga

RATING: 3.0
SCHMIDT SAYS: Bold and unrelenting. Somebody is using a drill to excavate your ingrown toenail.


3. PAPER WASP

avispa paper



RATING: 3.0
SCHMIDT SAYS: Distinctly bitter aftertaste. Like spilling a beaker of hydrochloric acid on a paper cut.


2. TARANTULA HAWK.

cazatarantula


RATING: 4.0
SCHMIDT SAYS: Blinding, shockingly electric. A running hair drier has been dropped into your bubble bath.

1. KING OF THE STINGS: BULLET ANT

bala



RATING: 4+
SCHMIDT SAYS: Like fire-walking over flaming charcoal with a 3-inch rusty nail grinding into your heel.

For me with mosquito bites and satiate my curiosity. If anyone dares to confirm the list of Schmidt, I encourage you .....
