Stinger of bee - dislodged

Both European & Africanized honeybee have identical severity of toxic when stinging. Stingers are small about 1/8th of an inch long (0.32 cm).
Honeybees typically only loose the stinger after stinging animal or human, the barbed stinger will typically get stuck in the skin after the bee pulls away.
As the picture showshe stinger dislodges from the bee's abdomen, causing the bee to die shortly after.
