The Park, It can be a dangerous place!

Molly The Wally having a lark on the park.


The 10 most painful  insect stings on the planet


I have recently been preoccupied with fly catching. As you are well aware, my exceedingly diligent approach to Vermin eradication has left Suburbia rather empty so this is my new alternative sport. Thus I impart to you the 10 most painful stings on the planet. Mad lecturer Dr Beetle-Boffin has tried 150 different varieties in the name of science. Is he right I wonder?

At number 10 we have the Sweat Bee, a sting that is so tiny, it’s like getting a light slap on your bottom when your human has tripped over Giggle Juice the pink elephant toy AGAIN!

At number 9 we have the Fire Ant, described as mildly alarming, like a small dose of static you get when you turn round and round on synthetic blankets and make them crackle.

At number 8 we have the Bullhorn Acacia Ant, a sharp jab, like when you run into the rosebush due to a failed emergency stop.

At number 7 we have the Bald Faced Hornet, like getting your paw smashed in the kitchen cupboard when you try to purloin a packet of crisps but were too slow.

At number 6 we have the Yellow Jacket, like eating a piece of hot pie on your tongue instead of waiting for it cool down.

At number 5 we have the Honeybee, like on a scalding day, accidently walking on a super hot man hole cover. 

At number 4 we have the Harvester Ant, like using a drill on your canine with no anesthetic and no treat afterwards.

At number 3 we have the Paper Wasp, like putting neat disinfectant on a bite on your muzzle and I don’t know what is worse the pain or the taste.

At number 2 we have the Tarantula Hawk, like being made to go to the grooming parlor and be subjected to Shampooch, followed by a cold rinse, followed by the hair dryer and then the dreaded pedicure.

And here it comes Pop Pickers.............

At number 1 we have the Bullet Ant, like having a Scotch Bonnet chilli pepper rubbed on your nose and in your mouth when you tried to raid the bin and then realising, that no amount of water will ease the pain and eating dirt doesn’t help either.

And to add further insult to injury, some insects also release a pheromone with their sting - telling other insects to join in the fun and give more stings to the dumb mutt.

And so endeth my nature lesson for today and let’s remember let’s be careful out there!

  6. First of all, the "park" behind the house is OUT OF BOUNDS to dogs. Boo! Second of all, the roads get SO HOT that it burns my paw pads so Mommy makes me run around at our driveway / tiny garden. So after reading your post, I'm mighty glad I don't go to the park. :)
