Just think about it! Getting stung on any part of your body over and over until you either hallucinate from the pain or have a heart attack.. but I can imagine its one of the slowest, non-human torture related way to perish, good thing I live in Philly! No swam could fly through our air pollution and not be 90% wiped out!

when I was 10 years old I got stung by a swarm of bees. They removed over 90 stingers from my body and soaked me in a tub of baking soda water. Fortunately I'm not allergic to bee's or it would have killed me.

I think someone implemented your idea quite some time ago...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scaphism

Scaphism, also known the boats, is an ancient Persian method of execution designed to inflict tortuous death. The name comes from the Greek word skaphe, meaning "scooped out".

The naked victim would be firmly fastened within a back-to-back pair of rowboats (or in some variations a scooped out tree trunk). The victim's head, hands, and feet would protrude from this improvised container.

The victim would be forced to ingest milk and honey to the point of developing severe diarrhoea, and more honey would be rubbed on his body so as to attract insects to the exposed appendages. He would then be left to float on a stagnant pond (or alternately, simply exposed to the sun somewhere). The diarrhoea would accumulate within the container, attracting more insects, which would eat and breed within the defenseless victim's exposed (and increasingly gangrenous) flesh. Death, when it eventually occurred, would probably be due to a combination of dehydration, starvation and septic shock.

In other recorded versions, the insects did not eat the victim; biting and stinging insects such as wasps, which were attracted by honey on the body, acted as the torture.

Death by scaphism is painful, humiliating, and protracted. Historical records suggest that Mithridates, sentenced to die in this manner for a perceived insult to the king, survived for 17 days before expiring.

ah, but on the rare occasions that a sloth commits murder, it is especially cruel and sadistic, and let me tell you he doesn't get in a hurry with it either

umm, I used to think being bound and eaten alive by rats over a period of days was the worst way to die. This might trump that :Q

Ha!
I must have ESP(N), because I just saw THISarticle on mlb.com! Talk about starting a meaningless thread and having some purpose injected to it. Something like this happened at a game even worse with flying ants a couple years ago, that was something if you didn't see it on sportscenter.
