Nice Article, except for some wrong facts on page 2.

Another letter to the reporter.

Hi Diane,

I just read your article Bee Dazzled. It was a nice article.

There are few items that need to be corrected.

Any of the worker bees can sting. Most of the bees that are in the hive are the younger bees.

They are less likely to sting however if the hive is placed under duress. Worker bees live about 45 days.

During the last two to three weeks of their life they are the foragers. They are the ones who go out and find the nectar and pollen.

PS. Mods I may have had a brain fart and posted this in a different area in the forums.
