Do Bumble Bees Sting?

The short answer is: Yes! But a bumble will only sting if it is compromised or if you damage its nest. It is only the female bumble bee that sting and the venom is similar to the one of honey bees. However, a bumble bee can sting several times while a honey bee will loose its stinger and die after a single sting. A bumble bee sting will cause a red inflammation on the skin and can cause an allergic reaction for some people. It may even cause problems to breath. To prevent a bumble bee sting you should avoid interfering with a bumble bee and be careful not to disturb it or its nest. Read more about bumble bee stings here.
