Stinging Insects can be very frightening when they are hovering around you. The very presence of Stinging Insects makes people feel threatened. Although hard to believe at times, bees and wasps are not as frequent as one would think. They rarely sting and when they do, they have been disturbed in some manner. That being said, getting stung can cause some discomfort and a bit painful, and can even turn fatal for those few people that are highly allergic.
