Why does a Bee Sting?
A bee’s stinger is a fine sharp barbed tube. Only worker bees sting, injecting a drop of poison into the body.
It is said that a bee can only sting once then it dies. Generally a person that is stung instantly knocks the bee, tearing the stinger from the body. This prevents the offender from withdrawing the sting naturally.
Bees are able to sting as often as it wants. Unless we quickly pull the stinger away from the body.
