** Not exactly bees, but close enough: Later, a minor [[MadScientist Spark]] launches her [[http://www.girlgeniusonline.com/comic.php?date=20050411#.WNsp3_krKUk "Poisonous Sky Wyrms"]] to try to battle a horse-monster. This doesn't work well, but fortunately, there's a DeathRay in the background.

A stinging bee (or a crushed bee) releases attack pheromones that attract and rile up more bees. The pheromone sticks around and does not wash off quickly. Water is not an ideal deterrent--bees will sting whatever parts are above the water, and come after you when you get out. Bee venom is designed to make you think you've been hurt badly, and enough of it causes your throat to swell so that you asphyxiate. The sensation is not unlike that of [[{{Pun}} beeing]] stung by ants or nettles, as all three use a venom cocktail that includes formic acid.

* In ''TabletopGame/{{Mortasheen}}'', this is such a common power that it's actually its own damage type. And it's not just with bees either.

* In ''Literature/SurvivorsQuest]'', the [[spoiler: Vagaari]] have swarms of "schostri", yellow and black insects that can hide under their clothing or swarm in a protective spherical pattern around their handler. Their stings are quickly fatal to most life-forms. If this seems like a [[Literature/NewJediOrder Vong]] thing... who knows? Maybe it is.

As it turns out, quite a few writers have had just that thought. Enter the Bee Bee Gun--the weaponization of flying, stinging insects. Bees tend to [[{{Pun}} bee]] effective weapons of terror for a number of reasons--they're too small to shoot or stab, they always seem to come in [[ZergRush swarms]] that can cover every inch of a person, they're difficult to outrun or outmaneuver, and they make that terrifying buzzing noise. Unlike honeybees and some others in the real world, these ones don't seem to die after the first sting. And god help you if you're allergic. ([[WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}} "Your insides will boil out of your eye sockets like a science-fair volcano!"]]) And if you're ''not,'' well, [[{{Pun}} beeing]] [[DeathOfAThousandCuts stung to death by thousands of bees]] would [[{{Pun}}bee]] [[CruelAndUnusualDeath a rather slow and unpleasant]] way to go.
