In general, bees are our friends. They make honey, they pollinate flowers, and we depend on them to grow our food. Of course, it's hard to remember all that when you're dying from a bee sting, isn't it? More than 50 people die every year in the United States alone from bee stings, usually as a result of an allergic reaction. On rare occasions, however, it's simply a massive bee attack that kills even someone not allergic. Perhaps you're wondering what dying from a bee sting is like? Well, we're about to find out.
The average person gets stung by a bee at least once or twice in their lifetime. If you have, you can surely remember how painful it was, and how much it sucked getting the stinger out. Well, imagine that you have a bunch of those stingers all over your body, and meanwhile your body is literally dying around you. That one little sting doesn't seem so bad now, does it?
If you still want to find out, step by step, just what dying from bees is like, then get ready for the grisly details. Spoiler alert: it's really, really painful.
