The bug with the strongest sting in the world. To resist it, you have to lie down and scream

The stinkiest bug in the world is called the “Tarantula Hawk”, a name that comes from its favourite food – tarantulas.

The sting from a Tarantula Hawk is so powerful that the recommended treatment is to lie down and scream, according to Rare.

Gratefully, this creature doesn’t meet humans at a daily basis, but they are common in the southern United States. They generally only sting when provoked, and the pain, while crippling,decreases quickly enough.


The bug has two-inches-long and practically is a type of wasp, the bigger you’ll ever see. In 1989, New Mexico named it their state insect.
