Question Stung!!

Does anyone know of anything other than a honey bee that loses it's stinger when it stings? Last week I had to scrape 3 stingers out of the kids feet next door. All of them were honey bees and the bees butts were still attached to the stingers. I stepped on something Monday and there was no butt and it was much larger and black instead of brown. My foot is still swollen today.

Cowgirls are like barbwire, handle with care.

I was always told that bee's don't always lose their stingers. Maybe it was a bumble bee you stepped on? They seem to be in the grass a lot.

You know, that happened to my mom two weeks ago. Some weird brown and black thing flew up her sleeve and stung her and then flew away. Her arm hurt a lot that day and the next day she had a bunch of bruises near where she had been stung. It was also quite swollen.
