Why Does A Bee Sting

Rarely bees sting if they are provoked. As a rule they sting only if they are driven away, or threatened. The stinger is a weapon that nature has given them, they use it for self defence.

The bee's stinger is really a fine sharp barbed tube, that a drop of poison can be injected. It is the Worker bees that sting.

We often hear a bee can sting once then it dies. What generally happens is that we knock the bee away, tearing the sting from its body. It injures the bee so badly it ends up dieing.

A bee can sting as often as we allow it, only if we don’t pull the stinger away from the bees body.
