Do honey comb bees sting?
Yes, however, the stinger is actually a modified ovipositor. An ovipositor is the body part, or device a queen bee uses to lay eggs. She can also use it as a stinger. Worker bees can also sting, meaning worker bees are also female. Their stinger is an ovipositor. Most worker bees never lay eggs, but occasionally a worker can become a "laying worker." In most cases she has not been fertilized, and non-fertilized eggs become drones. Drones are male bees and, being male, they have no ovipositor and cannot sting.

If you get stung by a honey bee in the eye, apply ice as soon as possible. You will then need to get to an emergency room.
It can happen. They won't sting members of their own colony, but if bees from another colony try to enter the hive to steal the honey the guard bees will sting them. A… newly-emerged queen will go around the hive looking for other queen cells. If she finds any she will sting through the cell walls to kill the developing queen inside them.
What happens to a bee after it stings someone depends on whether it was able to pull the sting out of the victim. If it can, the bee will just fly away and no harm comes… to it. By a cruel trick of evolution, a bee's sting is barbed, and animal flesh is elastic and tends to grip the sting so it is likely that as the bee tries to pull away the sting is pulled out from the bee's abdomen together with the venom sac and the muscles which pump the venom. The bee will then fly away, but its injuries are such that it will die from them somewhere between an hour and a day after.
No, allergy to bee stings does not mean that there is also an allergy to honey. The two allergens are not related.
They make the combs from wax excreted by glands specially developed for that purpose.
It means that everything has two sides just like coin. On one side it is bad and on the other side it is benefitial to us. It is similar to "Every cloud has a silver linin…g".
I find it funny that someone can come here and type a question but can't simply type it into google and get the answer themselves. Combs are a storage device for honey as we…ll as larvae.
Honey badgers do get stung, but they have a coarse coat and a tough skin which bees find difficult to penetrate with their stings.
Answer Studies indicate that insects react to UV light. Garden spiders spin patterns in their webs that reflect UV light and make insects think they're approachi…ng the kind of plant they desire. Color is not a significant factor.
Yes Honey Bees do sting! The sting is found in the abdomen, the larger part of the Bee which also contains the heart, the wax glands and the reproductive organs. There are… two glands associated with the sting. One is known as the Bifurcated venom gland which produces the venom and the other is the alkaline gland which produces the lubricant for the sting mechanism. Bees use their sting to defend their colony and when used effectively a well targeted thrust can paralyse or even kill the opposing Bee. Within the context of the bee world the Bee sting is a deadly weapon. It is also given an extra edge because when a Bee stings it releases a pheromone called Isopentylacetate which calls it's fellow Bees to 'sting in the same place' and acts as a call to battle. The impulse for a Bee to sting can often be triggered if a Bee becomes entangled, for example in hair of clothing and this in turn can cause the victim to wave their hands wildly. This also helps trigger the impulse to sting and double the trouble for the surprised victim. If you are handling a colony of bees or you are a bee keeper it is always advisable to wear a veil and cover your face as it hurts when you are stung. Also gloves are advisable, especially if new to keeping bees, because when starting out having gloves on gives you more confidence to handle the colony and also keeps your hands clean for when having to do more delicate tasks such as clipping the queen's wings. It's easy enough to whip them off and then slip them back on as required. More information on Honey Bees can be found at the Do Honey Bees Sting Website.
beeswax, it is formed under the belly of a bee and when they are 12-15 days old the beeswax is used to form the honeycomb
The Vastu implication of a honey bee comb has to do with building a house. The entrance ways and living areas have to be positioned accordingly.
The honeybee does not deposit honey. The bee deposits nectar collected from flowers, (regurgatated as liquid spit) into the comb. It sits on the bottom of the comb and the bee…s flutter their wings to evaporate the water out until it is the consistency of honey as we know it.
Eating honey probably won't affect sensitivity to bee stings, but many people say eating local honey has helped with hay fever, asthma and eczema. There is no documented proof… of this but it certainly won't do any harm. The effect relies on the honey containing small amounts of pollen from local flowers, so get your honey from local beekeepers, not the local supermarket where the commercial honeys will have been pasteurized and filtered to remove the pollen -- and the best of the flavour, but then I'm probably biased on that subject...
Grab the honeycomb and while it is still in your grasp you can actually bring it off the screen. Drag it into the white area where the players are shown in North, East, South …and West. Then bring it back to the screen where the bees are after they clear then repeat the same :) Hope this helps ~~**! Lizira- From Pinto~*
