Worker honeybees are female bees that have their ovipositor modified into a stinger. The bee stings its victim with its barbed stinger, then flies away, leaving the stinger and its associated muscles and other structures in the victim. The stinger continues to pump venom, and to embed itself deeper into the skin.
