2 Bees/Wasps Bees/Wasps

Bees should not be compared to wasps. In this short essay I will explain why wasps are useless and bees are not. Firstly, Bees pollinate flowers and make honey as well as just trying to get about their lives in an ordinary fashion. Now, on to the wasps. The short and simple answer is that they are useless. Yes they may pollinate flowers as well as bees, but if we didn't have wasps, life would be a lot easier. They sting you however many times they want and get off scott free but the bees? Nope they get deaded for no reason. Bees are like cats, if you stroke a cat too much it will get annoyed and scratch you and like a bee, if you annoy a bee, it will get annoyed and sting you but then it will die. This is why bees should be protected and kept alive and the wasps should basically become extinct as they may have a small purpose but on the whole they are useless. Thank you for coming to my TED talk about bees.

Bees are extremely good for humans.
Meanwhile, Wasps do nothing but sting you and ruin your life, house, and existence.
This should not be Bees/Wasps.
Just wasps.

Wasps are annoying bees aren't as annoying as wasps - trains45

Bees are bros and are practically why the world is still spinning with green, wasps are just asses, but I’m sure they have some significance.

3 Flies Flies

Annoying but defiantly not the worst insect - Spongehouse

Mosquitos are dumb, they always choose us as prey despite the fact that we have much greater opportunity to kill them than any other large mammal. Due to our hands.

Flies on the other hand ha literally thousands of eyes, and are remarkably agile and quick fliers, so if you don't have a fly swatter ready, they're capable of annoying the life out of you constantly until you by some miracle manages to kill one.

Mosquitoes have a really painful buzz and cause diseases, but if you're agile, at least you can smack them with your hands. Flies, on the other hand, are bloody disgusting and impossible to catch without a flyswatter. And to make things all the better, they contain tons of bacteria inside them and considering I have a HUGE flesh wound, I tend to keep away from them. They are also known to LAY THEIR EGGS INSIDE YOU, and I swear to god, that is bloody terrifying. Sorry Mosquitoes, you guys are WAY out of the league of Flies.

house flies get into everything. they barf and crap on anything they touch. also they are disease carriers. also there BUZZ is very annoying. but its fun to use them in a evil sicking prank!

4 Bed Bugs

It is so hard to get rid of them - Spongehouse

They are not fatal but they stink like ripen rasberries and they populate pretty quick. Even there are many individuals of them, it's hard to find them and their shelters. They do not just bite one spot when they suck blood, they bite many times in order to find juiciest body part of yours which makes you feel really itch.

Bed bugs are disgusting and annoying and leave a human itchy. They are little monsters.

I HATE THEM, they bite in a line and the worst stinking creatures ever...

5 Ticks Ticks

Eww this picture makes me want to scream! I don’t want to be rude but, INSECTS ARE THE UGLIEST FREAKS EVeR cREATED!

Years ago when I was little I had to always check myself for these things after playing outside. It got so annoying! - Spongehouse

I have a lot

Oh my gosh yes! They are super hard to kill, and they can be hard to catch, they get into everywhere and they are so small and hard to find, Their bites affect you really bad and they are the reason why your dog is itching so much (besides fleas) SCREW THEM! - missyweirdo

6 Cockroaches Cockroaches



Disgusting, disease carrying, douches, that eat your food and make you sick - Spongehouse

They are super gross I remember when I was vacationing in our rental in Florida, we would find at least five cockroaches everyday! They are the most gross creatures to ever live and they are pretty hard to kill! They suck! - missyweirdo

7 Fleas Fleas

It's annoying when a bunch hop on you at the same time. Plus their hard skin makes it hard to crush them - Spongehouse

Hey this should be higher. They are so small and jump really high, and crawl away real fast. Plus, they breed worse than bunnies do. And they leave itchy bumps on your sweet loving animal and you and your friends.

Point is, they're a pain to kill, and a pain living

Fleas are the most annoying little blood sucking bastards

Bastards!... Fleas are just bastards!

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

Ants are awesome! in my opinion - Spongehouse

These are one of the most annoying insects in my life! A lot of ants keep crawling on my body and bite me, I have a lot of ant bites now. These evil creatures are everywhere around my house!

One time I was doing work in my yard with my mom and she handed me a big bush to throw away. But a fire ant colony (or some other kind of ant) apparently lived in that bush and I got stung a bunch on my arm. It hurt and it looked like I had chicken pox on just my arm.

They are annoying and stupid. They get in your house and steal some bits of food you have on the ground. Where ever I step, I don't know if they are here or not! It's worse if you have a carpet floor.

9 Gnats Gnats

I hate it when they fly into my eye and then get stuck there! They are so much worse then flies in my opinion - Spongehouse

Gnats are awful because they're the smallest things ever and mosquitoes are very close honestly but really, gnats are just too tricky to kill and there are quadrillion's of them in the world. One quadrillion is 1000 trillion. It's just awful that they're so common

Gnats are extremely annoying as flies and hard to kill --- have to use a spray. Gnats like to crawl on the computer screen.

I absolutely hate gnats! They fly in my room and I have to use my own hands to catch one. It always interferes with what I'm doing, such as drawing - Stazemar000

10 Brown Stinkbugs

Once ONE lives, the whole area WILL be populated by these annoying creatures... They stay in your house for so long all year (even in summer). In summer or autumn, DON'T open your window, they immediately go into your house. Once they are killed they smell. You can't let them alone either because they pee (or something) on your house. They are very VERY RUDE going around your house to surprise you when you don't expect it!

Evil little bastards that invade my room and send me running like the idiot I am. Actually, as of now, I'm hiding from one downstairs.

Invasive species that came from Asia and is destroying U. S crops worst thing is when you stomp on it it lets out the worst smell ever that only summons more of them.

The Contenders

11 Horsefly

These things are terrifying I would find them in summer here in Ohio

Much worse then regular flies they suck your blood and make a giant splat when you squash them - Spongehouse

Horseflies are more annoying than mosquitoes in my opinion.


12 Spiders Spiders

Certain species of spiders can be pretty creepy - Spongehouse

Spiders are awesome!

That is not an insect! - lionsforlife

While many say spiders are freaky creatures who want to kill us all, A world without spiders would be a living hell. Insects would eat our crops and starve us.

13 Head Louse

I hear they cause a lot of itching - Spongehouse

14 Dog Flies

Bites harder than anything.

15 Black Flies
16 Locusts

Crop destroyers! - Spongehouse

How common is that swarm by the way - Destroyar4699


17 Carpenter Bees

The just buzz in your facr - Ilikegames

18 Wasp
19 Cicadas

I actually like Cicadas.

They're stupid. They sit on the door until someone kills them, yet they don't fly away when someone is coning

Their singing is extremely annoying. Shut up! They sing, then stop, then sing again for a long time.

Cicadas is flying most popular animals, Cicadas his no beautifull alliance. My comparison alliance to animals Cicadas for deadly flying man of serial Xena: Warrior princess, season 6, episode 3, (Heart of darkness). My comparison Cicadas for LUCIFER, LUCIFER be opponen of Xena, and he is God. He is me wings and start trick offer Xena.

20 Earwigs

These things are GROSS! And they're a nuisance!

They are cool looking - Spongehouse

21 Cockchafer

Little gits

22 Chiggers

They bit me literally everywhere. Extreme genital itching.

By far the longest lasting annoyingness of any insect. They hitch a ride on me every time I set foot in the woods!

23 Termites Termites Termites are eusocial insects that are classified at the taxonomic rank of infraorder Isoptera, or as epifamily Termitoidae within the cockroach order Blattodea.

If your house got termites,don't put any wooden furniture.DON'T put your wooden furniture or else all your wooden furniture will be gone and all your money for your wooden furniture will be wasted.

More than happends in Detroit Michigan! - SpencerJC

24 Crane Fly

They're known as "mosquito eaters" even though they don't eat mosquitos, or anything. These things are so dumb all they know how to do is fly into people's mouths. They're the gothic of the insects. Can someone send me a million of these so I can burn them alive?

Crane flies just bumble around and bounce off walls and do nothing in general. They're a waste of space.

Crane Fly is werry Annoying insect and werry crow. The Crane Fly his me werry speed fly and werry danger body full poison. I compare to one Crane fly for flying devil, of serial Xena: Warrior princess 6 season, 2 episode, this devil and opponent Xena me name MEPHISTOPHELES. My compare.

I hate crane flies.

They are like flying spiders with 6 legs.
Once my STUPID family left the
windows open and tons of crane flies came in.
I wish these annoying bugs don't exist because they are useless and stupid.

25 Moths 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.

But moths are cool! - Spongehouse

I don't mind moths, if there is one in my house, I let them out, some can actually be quite beautiful, luna moths, madagascan sunset moths, atlas moths, sphinx moths, cecropia moths etc. Only one kind of moth eats clothes and others don't even eat at all and even if they do they pollinate on flowers. I do admit they get a little annoying when they keep bumping into me but like I said, I let them out. But I do respect your others opinions on moths, you may find them annoying or creepy but I find them quite fascinating creatures. Its just my personal opinion.

Are they really this far down the list? The maahoosive furry demons, Flying round your bedroom in a dusty flurry, nibbling on your new threads and repeatedly flying into the walls, windows, lightbulbs, doors - Has no one experiences the havok of one of these bad boys busting thru the window just before you decide to go to sleep? Annoying little pricks if you ask me.. Like, if you're in love with the light so much.. why don't you go fly around during the day HOMEBOY.

I find them annoying. Moths just fly all over the place. One bumped into me.
