Honey Bees die when they sting

A honeybee’s stinger is made of two barbed lancets.

When the bee stings, it is unable to get the stinger back out.

It leaves behind not only the stinger but also part of its digestive tract, along with muscles and nerves.

It is the tearing of the abdomen and not the sting which kills the bee.
