Bees are flying insects that are instantly recognizable by their colors. They have a yellow and black striped pattern that spans the majority of their body with the exception of their head and limbs. They are known predominantly for handling the job of pollination. This unique job also allows bees to create honey as well as beeswax. Bees live together in a colony and they all work for and protect a single queen. It is the queen’s job to lay the eggs and organize where the worker bees should go.
Worker bees can and will sting animals or humans to protect the colony, but they are only allowed to sting once. After stinging, they will have sacrificed themselves to protect their colony and die. The queen can sting multiple times, but rarely does so since she is typically not found outside the hive.
