[edit] Information

Insects are one of the oldest creatures on the planet. They have evolved over millions of years and are more numerous than other creatures in the world. Insects can fly, climb, twist, swarm, and sting. They bite, they attack without warning, posing a great threat to human beings, so far millions of people have died of diseases spread by insects, they are deadly bugs. Discovery Channel will show you that these deadly bugs posing a great threat to the human world must not be underestimated. A sting by poisonous bark scorpion, it causes symptoms ranging from nausea and numbness, to muscle cramps and suffocation; South American fire ants have extremely strong venom, which can cause respiratory failure and fatal after several bites; mosquitoes are the main cause of yellow fever and malaria. Bugs as disease vectors; horse-flies infest the human body and easily cause ulcer-like swellings; the transmission vector of Chagas disease is kissing bugs; the venom of the funnel-web spider spreads rapidly and will cause severe convulsive paralysis. After the toxin invades the respiratory center, the patient will suffocate and die. You have to be careful to guard against these unique creatures that dominate life and death in nature. Go on an eerie nighttime search using black light to spot the amazing glow of the Bark Scorpion. Track the alarming spread of highly aggressive "Killer Bees"-- responsible for over 2,000 fatal human attacks. Follow the short, deadly life cycle of the disease-spreading Mosquito, the tiny bloodsucker that has killed more people than both tigers and bears. Not for the faint-of-heart, DEADLY BUGS offers you fascinating close-up footage and first-hand knowledge of dangerous insects, how they kill, and how they continue to survive and adapt. Producer/Director: Debbie Lapensee; Produced for Discovery Channel by Termite Art Productions
