The male bumble bee does not and can not sting. They do not have a stinger. The stinger on a male bumble bee is their reproductive organ. A male bumble bee has a yellow or white spot on their head between their eyes. Female bumble bees can sting and will sting over and over. They do not lose their stinger when they sting. Even the females are docile and will not sting unless they are bothered. So leave them alone. Don't kill them. They are the reason we have fresh fruits each year.
It's usually the queen bee and the worker female bees that sting. Unlike honey bees their sting is not barbed which means that they do not die after stinging. They are rather peace loving creatures and will attack only when they sense danger and will act defensively. Male bumble bees do not sting because they do not have a sting! The part that becomes the sting in female bumble bees becomes the genital capsule and is used in mating.
Male honey bees called drones don't sting either....my parents owned an apiary the entire time I grew up and we used to let the drones crawl all over us and never once got stung.....the female workers on the other hand with definitely sting you if you bother them or step on them or grab them by mistake and they die after they sting you. Bumblebees don't die after they sting you.
male bees don't sting they have male genital capsule but the queens and workers do !
Yes a bumblebee stings. A bumblebee doesn't die after it stings you but a honey bee does.
Yes they do a lot
