Dead Bee Stings
Question? My kindergarten class would like to know, can
a person be stung by a dead bee?
You can place the stinger into the skin. However, the muscles that are
used to inject the venom will not work. No pain should be felt. One
note: the muscles that inject the venom can operate after the bee is dead,
maybe for a half an hour or so.
