These are the worst insects - trains45

They spread disease, AND I have a severe allergy to them, they bubble up and swell! Wah

They're the worst and they are everywhere - Lissie19999

I hate them so much once I had a sting lasted for a week so painful ow


They just don't leave you alone. Just like mosquitos but bigger and nastier.

It's so annoying when flies get in through the window and fly into your ears and your face, and rub their faces on your windows, and lay eggs in your food. Hate them.

Flies are super annoying when they keep landing on me - trains45

These things. I hate them! - Userguy44


I hate wasps. More than anything. They steal your food and sting you for it. Definitely the most annoying. - PositronWildhawk

There the worst, I hate when they try to fly up to us - trains45

Useless, worse than bees.

Moths Moths comprise a group of insects related to butterflies, belonging to the order Lepidoptera. Most lepidopterans are moths; and there are thought to be approximately 160,000 species of moth, many of which are yet to be described.

I like Butterflys but moths suck! Butterflys don't go into your house and fly in your face. Not to mention they are so ugly looking!

Their was one in my bedroom. Terrifying! - Userguy44 no


Bees are not as annoying as wasps at least they make honey and help with some food, and it also cool to watch them pollinate flowers - trains45

At least they have a use, unlike flies, wasps and mozzies. They make honey. In economies with many bees, honey as a resource boosts exports value by millions! But bees are still annoying when they get in through the window.

At least bees are valuable! They make honey but their sting can hurt (I've never been stung but I know how it feels). - Catacorn

I get that bees have a purpose, but they're also kind of annoying sometimes. Of course I'm going to swat at it if it's in my face.

Army Ants

Most annoying bugs, they fly around your face, they fly in your eyes, nose & mouth.

They also fly in your ears with their high pitched huming sound, it's annoying.


They stay on you for weeks, and give you Lyme Disease, which can be fatal. Mosquitoes give curable diseases away (excluding Zika Virus). Lyme Disease has no cure. This should be higher than mosquitoes to be honest - KingSlayer93316

I hate ticks they give you illness

The Contenders


These things always get into my house in the winter. They are big and fast and hard to get rid of effectively. - Nonpointed

Fruit Flies

They're so annoying! The main thing I hate about summer season. I hate that I have to cover up my food and drinks with plastic wrap while I eat because they're ALWAYS trying to fly into your food and drinks. You'd be on your computer and all of a sudden you see one of those pests flying across your screen and then in your face and constantly annoying you. They breed like crazy and I hate that my home would reek of vinegar because I have vinegar traps set to kill them. I get so excited knowing winter time will come because they won't be around to irritate you.

Those small flies that always fall into your drink ruining it.

Harmless, but SO ANNOYING!


I like spiders, but not when they are constantly inside my house!

Harmless spiders are not annoying. Unless one is arachnophobic, one can cope. But dangerous spiders are ones you don't want to be anywhere near. That's why I'm never moving to any South American country that's full of them.

I understand spiders are helpful, but do they always have to show up in your bedroom?

I hate spiders so much

Butterflies Butterflies are part of the class of insects in the order Lepidoptera, along with the moths. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight.

OH COME ON GUYS! What kind of insect this beautiful would be on this list?
What kind of person would say that this is annoying...YOU!

They are CUTE! - Officialpen

What’s wrong with butterflies? They don’t harm you or give you illnesses... - KingSlayer93316


I hope I never get head lice it would suck, I remember my school had it twice I was lucky to not catch it - trains45

Just thinking of them makes you shiver and itch all over. - emraldYE

Ants Ants are eusocial insects of the family Formicidae and, along with the related wasps and bees, belong to the order Hymenoptera.

Ants are annoying sometimes and hard to get rid of - trains45

The most annoying insects ever - Eliz


One got into my house and it was so annoying

They are so gross to look at! One time my cat chased after one and he jumped and smacked it to the floor and devoured it. That moment was so beautiful. I hate those bugs.
