How does the honey badger avoid the dangerous and painful bee stings?
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.
Flying, sheltering and stinging are ways in which honey bees avoid predators. Specifically, the insect in question (Apis spp) can respond to predation in one of …three ways. A honey bee may choose to either out-fly a predator or seek shelter in a leafy hideaway or the hive. A third option would be standing ground to wield a fearsome stinger.
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 b…ees 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.
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.
I've been studying and working with the wool-carder bee for 3 years. Never been stung. Females are very non-aggressive and will usually just try and get out of your way. M…ales are aggressive to other bees, but can't sting you. Very fun bee to watch, so take the time to watch them! Without fear of being stung.
Ground bees stings are not dangerous to your health. Of course, if you are allergic to bee stings, then they would be very dangerous, but generally they are not.
yes. they could kill you. in a programme called roar a park keeper said that in 1998 a keeper fell in and was killed. they also keep electric wires around the side so: … they can't get out you can't get in no other animals can get in or out
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".
No, but they eat honey!
No..that's an old wifes tale. Try some insect bite creams from the RX drug store. Never heard of that. I have heard of making a paste of tenderizer and a small amount… of water to put on a sting. Also baking soda paste. Absolutely! It is not a wife's tale at all. When I was young and we were working out in the woods and got stung, the first thing we did is pee on it. I think it is the amonia in the urine. These other guys that answered are city people. It is country people that know about this home remedy.
because it contains formic acid
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.
They can be if you are allergic to the sting. Otherwise, they are not dangerous. They are very helpful because they pollinate plants.
it depends on if you are allergic and what type of bee. bee stings can be deadly to some people.
Well, wasp sting is more poisonous than bee sting
