What could that be?
What according to you is the deadliest insect on the planet? Killer bees? Or maybe fire ants? Or some kind of mammoth roach? Well, be surprised because it’s the Giant Hornet that’s the most dangerous of all. To make the matter a bit complex, they can also infest homes. Yes, you read it right, but not to worry, because you can prevent and also exterminate them if infested.
Also known as the yak-killer hornet, it’s the largest hornet in the world, having a wingspan of about 3 inches. Their bodies can be as long as about 2 inches and equipped with a stinger of about 6mm. The stinger is loaded with potent venom, which makes this hornet deadliest of all. They have gigantic heads, even when compared to other hornets with extremely strong mandibles that can decapitate a bee. The cytolytic peptide, present its venom is known to damage the human tissue. It does that by stimulating the phospholipase action. Needless to say, the sting is extremely painful.
You must be kidding me.
Hornets’ sting also causes an allergic reaction, like that of the wasps’ that are known to be fatal. Although the victim may not be allergic to a hornet’s’ sting, it is possible that the victims will die from a neurotoxin called mandaratoxin, especially when stung repeatedly. The venom of the hornet is much more toxic than that in any other insect. Infestation by a whole colony of such critters will only make it worse. The hornet has evolved to release an odor from the sting that signals other hornets to attack the victim. Hence it is highly dangerous to try and remove a hornet’s nest, especially without the proper care and precautions.
