It can be called the first among the most feared insects that are known to the world. For humans, this hornet is a great danger, because it secretes a poison, which can easily burn through human flesh. Typically, the hornet is trying to get its venom into the eyes of the victim. Also the poison of these insects is composed of a special pheromone that attracts other individuals of this species. For example, the Japanese giant hornet can attract their relatives (usually arrive not less than 30 hornets) in order to procure from bee hives. In this case, the battle 30000 bees vs 30 hornets ends with the victory in favor of the latter. The hornets take bee offspring as their victory Banquet.

To escape from this insect is almost impossible, because it can fly up to 50 miles daily. Residents of Tokyo often find these the most terrible insects each year killed 40 people, and a horrible death.

The insect lives on trees in tropical forests. The victim ant-the bullet falls from the top – front of the attack, he emits a terrible chilling scream. Bullet it is called because its bite causes the same pain as when injured with firearms. Also the bite caused by the ant-bullet, causes paralysis, which can be stored up to two days.

An interesting fact is that some local people living in areas where there are ants-bullets, use them for the ceremony of turning boys into men boys are put on hands mitts from the leaves, which are located between these insects. In donning such gloves boys are subjected to numerous bites, which cause paralysis of the limbs, but those who have withstood the test, then very proud of my growing up.

Army ant

These insects live in the Amazon basin. They move in huge colonies (more than 500,000 individuals), and destroy everything in its path, eating all sizes of animals. Cases are known when a colony of these ants killed animals the size of a horse. Even scary to imagine what will remain of the man who will face army ants. Strange is that these insects are blind. Maybe that’s why they eat indiscriminately all that can move. Usually they suffer from animals, stupid, slow, sick, or sleeping on the ground.

Half the length of their bodies make massive jaws, with which insects can produce their own food. The ant colony is a soldier is constantly moving from place to place, the battalion, that is why they never called. They do not create hives in one place, and stop in the form of stacks at the time that you want to delay the Queen’s eggs. When the larvae, the ants pick them up and rush on in the way of a huge mass of deadly to all living things.

Thousands of local residents have already suffered from stings of bees.

Africanized honey bees are very difficult to distinguish from normal European bees. Its existence these insects are science – 50 years they established St. E. Kerr, whose main objective was to create a type of bees that can live in the jungle. And he got such insects, and they also proved that they can exist in conditions of deserts.

The fly-larva

Human fly-the larvae should be especially wary, because its larvae are able to penetrate human skin and live there. This can result in death for the person. To get into the human body eggs flies-larvae can use flies or mosquitoes that land on the surface of human skin. From the heat of the egg opens, it appears from the larva, which proveryaetsya through the skin and begins to live and eat in the human body.

Therefore, local people come up with different ways of dealing with a fly, in particular cut down the bushes, shoot wild animals, and females of tsetse flies even exposed to radiation, that could not further produce offspring.



Externally, these insects cause hostility, and some people even fear. However, distributed worldwide centipede even nicknamed fly, bring more good than harm. They destroy harmful insects and spiders, and in many countries around the world are trying to protect these insects. Flycatchers like to live in the homes of the people, does not damage foodstuffs and furnishings. They love moisture, so their main place of their habitat are considered to be bathrooms, toilets and basements.

The lifespan of a centipede is 3-7 years, while insects are born with only four pairs of legs, and with the new molt, their number increased by one pair.
