There are many different types of bees which we may come across and all are very beneficial to our environment. Bees come in three major varieties in the UK; Honey Bees, Bumblebees and Masonry Bees.
The first two are protected species due to their usefulness in pollinating plants (and honey bees agricultural use of making honey), and should be moved where possible, but it is permissible to forcibly exterminate them where there is a serious threat to life or property.
Bees can sting repeatedly like wasps can, if attacking another insect. However, if a Honey Bee is attacking a mammal or larger creature with skin, the barb gets stuck in the skin and the bee is fatally wounded in its escape.
