Did you know that up to 100 people die as a result of a bee or wasp sting each year? This is mostly because of an adverse allergic reaction they have to the venom that is released as part of the sting attack. In this discussion we will become more familiar with bees.
There are 3 types of bees that are of importance… The bumble bee which is up to one inch long and has yellow and black stripes. The carpenter bee, which looks like a bumble bee but it has a completely black and smooth abdomen. The male’s face is yellow and the female’s face is black. And then there is the honey bee, which is about a half-inch long and covered in fuzz.
Next time we will meet the wasp and learn more about this potentially dangerous creature.
