Bees are docile and won’t sting unless they feel threatened

A few weeks ago, while heading home from a long weekend, I stopped at a fast food restaurant to grab a quick bite to eat. While I was at the drive-thru window waiting for them to complete my order, I had my window rolled down and a bee flew into my car. I didn’t freak out, but I was concerned that the bee was in my car. I immediately rolled down all my windows so that the bee had multiple ways to exit the vehicle. I had my cousin with me, and he was trying to help the bee out of the car. The fast food employees were witness to all of this and waited patiently until we were able to get the bee safely removed. Thankfully, neither me or my cousin are allergic to bees, and I am sure things like this happen all the time. Bees will enter spaces where we occupy, and when this happens, the best thing to do is to remain calm. No matter what, do not try to swat at the bee for it could possibly view that action as a threat and might retaliate by stinging you. Typically, bees don’t use their stinger unless they feel threatened. In fact, the insects are docile and will die once they sting a human. Once the stinger punctures human skin, the bee has to detach from the stinger which will leave a gaping hole in its abdomen. It will then die a painful death a short time after. So, when you encounter a bee, chances are it will not want to sting you.
