An Africanized honeybee sting is identical in severity to European honeybees sting, and like the European bee. Stingers are about an eighth of an inch long and a sixteenth of an inch across.
If you're stung by a honeybee the barbed stinger will typically get stuck in the skin as the bee pulls away, dislodging it from the bee's abdomen causing the bee to die shortly after.
