Why Does a Bee Sting?

It is unlikely that bees sting humans, unless they are provoked. The only time they use their nature given gift, is when they have been driven away or nearly killed. Bees use their stinger in self defence.

The bee's stinger is really a fine sharp barbed tube. When the worker bee injected a human's skin, it leaves drop of poison.

It is said that a bee can only sting once, then dies. Often, the person that gets stung, instantly knocks the bee off, tearing the sting away from its body.The insect gets so badly injured that is dies.

It is true to say that bees can sting as many times as we let it, unless we instantly pull the the stinger away from the bees body.
