My vote goes to the bald face. I’m sure there are worse, but not in our state. Murder hornets possibly?

I don’t know what happened this summer but I was stung SIX times!
Two times by bald faced hornets. Oh my goodness, it felt like I had been shot, or shocked or kicked.
I actually cried. The other times were just smaller wasps, annoying and painful but nothing like the hornets.
I can’t even feel regular bee stings.
The crazy thing is I have regular pest control but this year has been the absolute worst.
I have been stung by a paper wasp too, and that made me swear but not as bad as the bald faced hornet.
So let’s hear it, what do you think is the most painful?

About a month ago i had these little devils in my shed. They looked like yellow jackets but where much smaller, tiny actually in comparison. I still do not know what they are. I hit em with a can of raid hornet spray did not phase them, hit em with brake cleaner, carburetor cleaner and finally oven cleaner did the job.
I got stung in the left thumb and chest a few times. Extremely painful for a couple days and whatever kind of venom they had i had big scabs after about 4days.
I wish i knew what species they are, can anyone identify them?
I included a pic of them in relation to a US penny for size comparison.
Thanks for any replies.
