Although insects aren’t the deadliest creatures in the world, there are a few that will definitely kill you under certain circumstances.

So without further ado, here are the ten deadliest insects in the world in terms of fatalities recorded around the world every year.

9Giant Asian Hornet

The Giant Asian Hornet, like the name suggests, can grow to be 3 inches long and is one of the most aggressive insects in the world. Not only can just 20 of them decimate an entire hive of honeybees but they can also kill a grown human being just by stinging them. In all fairness, most of the people who die from hornet stinging do so because of allergic reactions but also because of a pain-causing enzyme in its venom which can dissolve human tissue, an enzyme which if it gets into the bloodstream, can cause fatalities.
