It's not unusual so far as UK bumble bees are concerned. All other types of bee can sting.Originally Posted by leelai
You remind me of a story. When I was a small boy, I was interested in a friend's beehive. Dressed in my tropical clothes, I went to investigate the hive. I think I lifted the top of the hive or tried to discover whether bees really stung. When some angry bees appeared, I ran but yes. I got stung a good number of times!
Hopefully my curiosity is tempered with a good measure of caution now!

I didn't know that at all!
You were very lucky you weren't allergic to the stings......
When we were kids we used to dare each other to step on them whilst they were in the clover.......amazingly we were hardly ever stung and the bees always just flew away.
Gosh, the things we did as kids!
