If anything bee stings should become rarer seeing as the bee population is collapsing.

GOOD.


Stupid fuck. I don't even know what kind of bee it was. I was minding my own business, just sitting there, and boom.. pain right under my right shoulder. It still hurts. :|

I was stung by one of those when I was little. Right by my eye. I still have the scar.

I've seen wasps and bees near my house. I'm not really scared of them. I, strangely, say "Why hello there mr. bee, mr. wasp! Don't mind me, just strollin' around!"
They ignore me :(

I've never gotten stung before. Once in middle school me and some guys were messing with a bee hive. The swarm appears. We run. It doesn't matter how fast you run, only that you're faster than the other guy. I won.

Stuff you might've encountered an Africanized honey bee. These are the real pricks. The European honey bee tends to be pretty chill and only sting when you present some sort of threat but the Africanized ones are very aggressive and will chase you for a long time. If you dunk underwater they'll also wait for you.

Randori if you actually do know of a hive of wild honey bees, it might be good of you to call some beekeepers down. The collapsing of the bee population is quite serious and it's starting to seriously affect the ability to cheaply grow many crops. Also never say hello to a wasp.

Not even bees or hornets like Randori.

It's not there's a hive near my house, they just appear near my house.
Also, the wasp is a bit of a prick... I hear he's mean.

Bleh. Anything that buzzes needs to stay away. Except cicadas. They're awesome.

Anywho, have you tried anything to remove the pain of the bee sting?

In Pennsylvania, while I was visiting my cousin.

I watched a small swarm of bees moving into their birdhouse. There was an ant hill nearby. I got to watch an ant vs bee fight, was awesome. Watching bees smack the ground, and the ants cling onto the bees, making them smack into nearby trees.

That actually reminds me of this time I saw a huge spider, fight this tiny wasp. The spider seemed to have the upper hand, but then the bee stung the spider, picked him up, and flew off.

I sat there like D8

I've never been stung by a bee...but they do seem to be attracted to me. x-x;;; Two particularly weird instances come to mind.

Once when I was little, I was walking to my grandma's house, and a bee just randomly flew over and landed on the back of my right hand and just...sat there. Scared me really badly 'cause I was worried that if I did anything, it'd sting me. It didn't, though, as after a while it just flew away.

Another instance I remember was about a year or two ago when I was over at a birthday party, and this one bee kept following me, and at one point clung to my chest and wouldn't leave for a long time. >_o;

I actually have a hive of wasps a couple of years ago but then me and my brother throw water to it, the wasps flew away and never come back... that was a good day.

I was playing disc golf with my roommates yesterday and one of their discs landing beside a fallen hornets' nest. He knew it was there because previously, a friend of his had chucked a log into it. He said it must've been karma for hs disc to have landed there. Thankfully, no one was punctured.
