Can a Hornet Sting More Than Once?

Bees, wasps, and hornets can sting you and leave some of their venom behind, which is something to keep in mind if you have children. Hornets make for an especially serious pest control situation because of the nature of their stingers.

If you’re wondering if an insect can sting more than once, the answer is in the stinger. If the stinger is barbed, it will get stuck in the skin and continue to release venom. Unfortunately for the bug, the stinger is connected to the digestive system, so the bee or wasp will die after losing its stinger. Hornets, on the other hand, have smooth stingers. This means they can sting multiple times and still retrieve their stingers and survive. Some hornet stings can even be fatal, so remember to call your pest control professional if you notice any signs of a hornet problem.
