Do bees sting?
Bees may sting when they feel threatened or when protecting their hive. Bees have a venomous stinger that can cause intense pain, inflammation and redness at the sting site. For people who are allergic to bee stings, an allergic reaction can occur, which can be potentially fatal. It is therefore important to remain calm and avoid sudden movements in the presence of bees, not to disturb their environment and to wear protective clothing if necessary.
