Do bumblebees sting?
Yes, they do. Although their stings are painful and they aggressively defend their nests, they pose less of a threat to humans than honeybees because they form smaller nests. Bumblebee stings may become more common, however, now that bumblebee colonies are being used for crop pollination.
