Justin O. Schmidt on the Schmidt Sting Pain Index

August 28, 2011

Justin O. Schmidt is a research biologist and professor at the University of Arizona school of Entomology and he's been stung by nearly every insect with a stinger, from the benign honeybee to the viscious tarantula hawk wasp. He told Steve Paulson about his creation, the Schmidt Sting Pain Index.


Yow! That tarantula hawk wasp tale is one of the most horrific things I've ever heard.
