1.bees sting only to defend their hive, that stinging a human will kill them.
2.Bees are ecological heroes. As pollinators, their survival is linked to ours. When colony collapse disorder made news in recent years, the campaign to save them was something we could all get behind.

Bees bring great economic benefits
Thousands of honey bee colonies arrive in the Fraser Valley’s blueberry fields every spring, but beekeepers are worried this crop may be harming their bees.

In order to promote the development of beekeeping agriculture, the Chinese beekeeping research institute vigorously promotes the green prevention and control technology of bee pollination .
Since 2013, bee populations in some parts of the world have fallen by a third, with phenomena ranging from the spread of the varroa mite to climate change identified for blame.

Honey bees spend hours each day collecting pollen and packing it into tidy bundles attached to their hind legs.
Insects in decline—on farmland, latecomers lose out
Propolis is a pliable, resinous mixture that honey bees (Apis mellifera) create by mixing a variety of plant resins, saliva, and beeswax and which they apply to interior surfaces of their hives, namely at points of comb attachment and to seal up cracks and crevices on the interior side of hive walls. Greater propolis production is connected with improved hive health, and a new study finds a few simple methods beekeepers can employ to stimulate increased propolis production.
Social communication in bee colonies: Bees learn to evaluate the importance of information shared by waggle dances
Beekeepers urged to rethink fears around deadly virus
Research by Professor Madeleine Beekman means the Australian honey bee industry might need to rethink its approach to preparing for the arrival of the Varroa mite, which threatens local bee populations.
South Australian beekeepers are hoping for good autumn rainfall to help bring an end to one of the "worst" seasons the industry can remember.
Climate change, habitat loss, pollution and disease are pushing some bees to extinction, a new report by WWF and Buglife reveals. The scientific research, published on World Bee Day (May 20), looks at bee populations in the East of England and finds many species are on the brink of extinction, with 17 species lost from the region entirely.
Beekeepers are legally required to report any cases to the Scottish Government
A nonlethal dose of insecticide clothianidin can reduce honeybees' life span by half; once combined with the fungicide pyraclostrobin, it alters the behavior of worker bees to the point of endangering the whole colony.
Honeybee hives stand on a field at the Central Maryland Research and Education Center in Beltsville, Maryland. An annual survey of U.S. beekeepers shows the rate of colony death last winter — nearly 40% — was the highest reported since the survey began 13 years ago.
