I would really like to take you out to a hive of honey bees, you'd find out real quick about the stinging ability.

What are the really large and fat bees called??? We always called them queen bees, but I dont think that is right. I dont think they sting.

Well, its not expertise, I know nothing of moths. I just did some searching on the net.

BTW, the moth looks mean. Harmless, I guess, but looks bad.

You're talking about 'bumble bees'/'carpenter bees' I guess. They can burrow a perfectly round hole in wood or earth. From personal experience I can tell you they too can sting quite well.

U better BEElieve it! Our grandpa does bees and he put a hive in our backyard. I found out the hard way REAL fast! Once a bee stings you, the other bees can smell where tha last be was at on your body, and the others will sting you in the same spot if you dont move your butt fast!

Some bumble bees sting some do not. White face bees do not sting but black face bees do. When we were kids we would catch the white face bees all the time.
