|More insects we rarely see - and (perhaps) wish we never do.|
Honey bees generally only sting to protect their hives. The bees
that are capable of stinging are the female worker bees. Bee
stingers are barbed and, after being thrust into the skin, are
left in the skin but are pulled out of the abdomen of the bee.
Poison sacs are attacked to the stinger and pump poison into the
wound. Some people are very allergic to the poison and must be
taken to the hospital. Others can get by with applying ice
packs, calamine lotion, or taking antihistimines. The bee dies
after losing its stinger, but you probably won't!
