Strange as it seems, the mosquito is the most dangerous insect. It kills more people than any other bug. They carry around tons of dangerous diseases that are very harmful to people.
Most insects are dangerous to humans not because of any physical threat that the insect itself presents, but rather because of the diseases they habitually carry.
This means that the most dangerous insect to humans is the common mosquito, being the most common transmitter of malaria, dengue, yellow fever, and a whole host of other viruses that are just as icky and horrible as their names imply.
Flies are also way up there, recorded as being able to carry 200 different types of pathogens (a mosquito can carry any one of 500).
Another very dangerous insect to humans and other animals is the tick. Ticks bury under the skin of their victims and can carry a number of viruses/infections including Lyme Disease. Lyme Disease is very common in ticks and can severely injure humans. Symptoms of Lyme Disease include fatigue, joint and muscle pain, headaches, heart rhythm problems, and chronic pain.
I found a list of the top ten deadliest insects. Some of these are downright creepy! It made my skin crawl just reading about them.
