Occasionally wild honey bees will establish their hive in close proximity to human homes or work places. In these cases, the honey bee can become a problem as they will send out large numbers of bees to protect the nest when disturbed. The stings can be very painful and some individuals can react allergically and require medical attention. Honey bee stingers are barbed: when they sting the honeybee cannot pull the stinger back out. It leaves behind not only the stinger, but also a venom sac which continues to pulse venom into the victim.
