We all know insect stings are the worst, but how much do they really hurt? Dr. Justin O. Schmidt, entomologist, and creator of the Schmidt Pain Scale Index took it upon himself to find out!
Here are some of the results so you know what to watch out for!
Index: 0 = the least amount of pain 4+ = the most amount of pain
0 Sweat bee: Light & fruity. These pests will barely harm a hair on your head.
1.2 Fire ant: Sharp, sudden & a little alarming.
2.0 Bald-faced hornet: Similar to slamming the car door on your hand.
3.0 Paper wasp: This one will leave a burn. Imagine spilling a beaker of Hydrochloric acid on a paper cut.
4.0 Pepsis wasp: A blinding electric shock that will leave you paralyzed and screaming.
4.0+ Bullet ant: An unfathomable pain that lasts more than 12 hours. According to Schmidt, it will leave you feeling “Like fire-walking over flaming charcoal with a 3-inch rusty nail in your heel.”
