WHIO-TV @whioty Do you know what to do if you're bitten by a tarantula hawk wasp? onwhiocom2tjwp8x 7317 313 PM moonsofavalon prokopetz thesallowbeldam momma-crow 1petulantkitten 1petulantkitten artistil weavemama BY A WHAT THATS ALL THE BIG SCARIES IN ONE BUG TFFFJU Give it a dime apparently Had to go research this thing and the answer to what to do if it stings you is scream from Wikipedia- “One researcher described the pain as “…immediate excruciating unrelenting pain that simply shuts down one’s ability to do anything except scream Mental discipline simply does not work in these situations In terms of scale the wasp’s sting is rated near the top of the Schmidt sting pain index second only to that of the bullet ant and is described by Schmidt as “blinding fierce and shockingly electric”“ Soooooo…dissociate to escape or? It’s laying eggs in you Let’s back up a second and fully appreciate that description The Schmidt sting pain index a widely used classification system for the bites and stings of ants bees and wasps is literally the personal ranking system of a guy named Justin Schmidt who goes around letting bugs sting him for science Like that’s this Thing as a scientist In one entry he describes the sting of the common bee as “almost pleasant like a lover just bit your earlobe a little too hard” In another the sting of the yellowjacket is described as “hot and smoky almost irreverent Imagine W C Fields extinguishing a cigar on your tongue“ So when the Schmidt sting pain index characterises the sting of the tarantula hawk as “blinding fierce and shockingly electric” well now you know what your standard for comparison is! this is fascinating but when do we kinkshame Justin Schmidt Meme
