The 20 Most Horrifying Insects To Ever Crawl The Earth

Insects may all have six legs, but they actually come in all shapes and sizes. And unfortunately for us humans, some of them have evolved to be truly horrifying – these 20 being a case in point. They’re not all harmful, but they’re all, quite frankly, horrible.

20. Asian giant hornet

Hornets are the terminators of the wasp world, and the Asian giant is the largest of the lot. Annually, dozens of people succumb to its potent venom, which is delivered via a 0.24-inch-long stinger. But that’s not all, for its fearsome jaws make it an efficient predator. Indeed, in just one minute a single hornet can decapitate 40 honeybees.
