Bees do. It is a component of the venom and is called the attack pheromone. Its effect is to make other bees in the immediate area more likely to sting.

Many people confuse bees with wasps. One of the most significant differences between the two is their eating habit: Bees consume plant nectar, but wasps feed mostly on small insects.

Both female bees and wasps have a venomous sting; wasps usually sting to stun prey, and bees use a sting as a defense mechanism for their hives.

What is the difference between a honey bee and a wasp?

Honey bees are beneficial because they spend most of the day pollinating your plants. Wasps don't spend much time pollinating, but some species do help by killing spiders, which they encase with an egg which hatches and feeds on. Honey bees are roundish, orange and black colored and bumbly in flight. Wasps are thin, elongated with a narrow separation at the thorax. Bees will generally leave you alone, wasps will attack out of the blue for no apparent reason. Hope this helps! Wasps only attack you if you are in their way. A Bee will die after its 1st sting while a Wasp can keep on stinging.
