Fire ant is the common name for several species of ants in the genus Solenopsis. They are, however, only a minority in the genus, which includes over 200 species of Solenopsis worldwide. Solenopsis are stinging ants and most of their common names reflect this, for example, ginger ants and tropical fire ants.
The Japanese giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia japonica) is a subspecies of the world's largest hornet, the Asian giant hornet (V. mandarinia). It is a large insect, with adults frequently growing to greater than 4.5 centimetres (1.8 in) long, with a wingspan greater than 6 centimetres (2.4 in).
5. Fire Ants. Typically nesting in sand or soil, fire ants build rather large mounds and tend to feed on plant life and occasionally crickets and smaller insects. When bothered, however, the fire ant sting is a venomous prick that feels like it’s burning with fire, hence the name and swells up into a painful pustule.
Which is the deadliest insect on Earth? You may be thinking of killer bees or maybe African ants or Japanese hornets.

But there are many insects which have expertise in torturing us. One of these types of insects is the Botfly. This Botfly does not possess any venom, as far as I know them. But still they are one of the deadliest insects of the world, maybe not for other animals, but for us, the humans, botfly is really one of the most deadly animals.
