Fun Facts About Bees

Fun Facts About Bees*

– Only female bees can sting because they also use their stinger to lay eggs.
– Sterile female bees only use their stinger to sting.
– Some bees die after stinging because their stinger is attached to their abdomen and barbed.  When they try to the fly away the barbs cause their stinger to detach.
– Other bees (like carpenter bees) that don’t have barbed stingers can sting over and over and over and over and over again.  (I don’t think this is fair.)
