Scientists have discovered bees not only bite enemies that are too small to sting, but paralyse their victims with a snake-like venom.

Both ends are dangerous! Soon the bees will attack us for enslaving them and causing their massive die offs. The Beepocalypse is upon us!

No kidding Sherlock! I was bitten and stung at the same time by a HUGE black and white bumble bee in Hawaii in 1977. It left the stinger and poison sac in the back of my thumb and when I went to pull it out I accidentally squished the poison sac. OOOOOWWWWWWEEEEEEE!

To my knowledge and personal experience MANY bees, and wasps for that matter, do not sting at all, but in fact bite as their first line of defence. I have demonstrated this many times for others by bare-handed handling of bees and wasps. People are shocked when I outstretch my hand to an enormous carpenter bee, for example, and allow it to walk onto the palm of my hand, stroke its back with my finger...
