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.
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.
No, allergy to bee stings does not mean that there is also an allergy to honey. The two allergens are not related.
Yes it is. If we ignore the case where the victim is hypersensitive to bee venom, where one sting can prove fatal, it is not possible to say how many stings it would take to k…ill a person. People have been known to die after being stung a few hundred times, and there have been people who have survived after receiving thousands of stings. A dangerous level is considered to be around two stings per kilogram of body weight. Anyone who has been stung by a large number of bees would need hospital treatment.
Ben Franklin is trying to say you may want it but there are consequences. You are going to try and take a bee's honey but you will be stung. I guess he was trying to say s…omethings are not worth it. This may not be right but this is what i think the quote means. Ben Franklin is trying to say you may want it but there are consequences. You are going to try and take a bee's honey but you will be stung. I guess he was trying to say somethings are not worth it.
it just means that it is starting to heal. As long as you don't itch it, it will soon go away. But if you have a rash around it or its swelling this could mean your allergic. …I would see a doctor about it if you have those things happen. Hope I help you out.
A certain amount of swelling after a bee sting is quite a normal reaction. Seek medical help if it becomes excessive. This is the way your body protects you from a sting.
Honey badgers do get stung, but they have a coarse coat and a tough skin which bees find difficult to penetrate with their stings.
Being stung by bees represents feeling stung in life this could be by a loved one or an employment situation. Some say that it could also mean there is bad luck awaiting you, …however I do not believe this is so, as through personal experience I could clearly make the correlation between the dream and a recent incident in my life that left me feeling stung. Dreaming of bees that do not sting, or a beehive is believed to be a sign of good fortune soon to come!
It means you had a normal dream and not a nightmare. It also Sometimes mean that you will be rich if the bees were orange in your dream -Maxwell
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.
It means to kill the things that avoid something with your hurtful words or insults.
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...
