They bite me every millisecond in the summer. They are the worst

You don't want to get bit by one of these things to often, or else you might end up getting a deadly disease - Spongehouse

They are just unfair obstacles created by god

2 Wasps

I voted for wasps because where I live, there are no mosquitoes! Say what you will about bees, but at least when they sting, they have a good reason to!

Wasps are so annoying last summer they were so bad, they kept flying up to me, I quickly run away to not.get stung, I almost got stung once last summer - trains45

These insects are basically just ants that have wings, stingers, and bad attitude.

Wasps are so much worse than bees. While bees sting people for a reason, wasps just seem to sting people whenever they feel like it - Spongehouse

Hardest thing to get rid off by far

8 Horse Fly

They suck. They're the fastest insect, so when they bite, it'll hurt, and you won't even see them do it.

Worst insects ever! They're really tiny and they sometimes crawl in my food, which I'm really annoyed of.

18 Bullet Ant

They call it Bullet Ant for a reason! it feels like you are getting shot

Obviously, I have never ever been stung by a bullet ant, but from what I've heard on YouTube, their stings hurt so bad. They have the most painful sting in the world, and it will cause you to scream your lungs out! So don't get stung by a bullet ant if you don't want to feel like you're in pain!

Stay away from this ant's jaws or you'll be sorry - Spongehouse

You feel like you are shot.

19 Hornet Hornets are the largest of the eusocial wasps, and are similar in appearance to their close relatives yellowjackets. Some species can reach up to 5.5 cm in length.

This is one of my favourite insects of all time.

I agree hornets are annoying - trains45

Worse then wasps
