I only been stung once by a honey bee no big deal. I get hit more often by paper wasps. Working in a nursery they build nests in old pots or on plants. So it goes with the territory. That said honey bees are used for the base of the sting index does it hurt more or less than a bee sting. see: http://www.weather.com/science/news/most-painful-insect-stings-20130717#/1

As a kid, I was stung by a bee that was hiding inside of a soda which was a situation far more shocking than it was painful. I was also stung by a wasp which was terrible because I learned I'm allergic to wasps which is way worse since they're way meaner.

ive been stung a couple times when i was younger its about as painful as stepping on a small rock barefoot or stubbing your little toe on a table. its shocking at first but only lasts a few minutes if that. i got stung in the neck once and that was painful as all hell, i even had an allergic reaction even though im not allergic. scared the hell out of my parents because i basically stopped breathing.

Not a bee, but a yellow jacket. It sucks, but it's not too bad. Not unless you're allergic

Helpful tip for those stung by bees/wasps: Mud can be effective to calm a sting, but what works better is meat tenderizer. Take a pinch of meat tenderizer into your palm and add some water to make a paste, and spread the paste over the sting.

Never got stung by a Bee but had several Wasps sting me once.
I was around 10 i think when i stepped on an earth wasp nest.
The pain from being stung wasn't that bad at all but i was too busy running away from the swarm of angry wasp to really notice anything.

After maintaing a 100% no-sting success rate for almost 23 years, I got stung inside a school building.
