Why Bees Sting?
Normally bees sting if they are provoked or annoyed. They become alarmed when you try to kill them, or drive them away. So using their weapon that nature has given them, they sting you for self defence.
With a fine sharp, barbed, stinger the worker bee stings. When you have been stung, you have also been injected with a drop of poison .
We often hear that a bee dies after stinging a person. Normally a person who is stung knocks a offending bee away which tears its stinger from its body. Badly injured, the bee dies.
As true to say if we don’t pull a bee away from its body the bee can sting as often as we allow it.
