Do Bumbles Bees Sting

< Back

Yes, bumblebees do have the ability to sting. Both queen and worker bumblebees have a stinger. However, like many other types of bees, they are not typically aggressive and will only sting in self-defence or when they perceive a threat to their hive.
One key difference between bumblebees and many other species, such as honeybees, is that bumblebees have a smooth stinger without a barb. This means they can sting multiple times without losing their stinger or dying, unlike honeybees, which die after stinging because their barbed stinger remains in the skin of their target.
