Bees with barbed stingers can often sting other insects without harming themselves. Queen honeybees and bees of many other species, including bumblebees and many solitary bees, have smoother stingers with smaller barbs, and can sting mammals repeatedly. The sting's injection of apitoxin into the victim is accompanied by the release of alarm pheromones , a process which is accelerated if the bee is fatally injured. The release of alarm pheromones near a hive may attract other bees to the location, where they will likewise exhibit defensive behaviors until there is no longer a threat, typically because the victim has either fled or been killed.
Note: A bee swarm , seen as a mass of bees flying or clumped together, is generally not hostile; it has deserted its hive and has no comb or young to defend. These pheromones do not dissipate or wash off quickly, and if their target enters water, bees will resume their attack as soon as it leaves the water. The alarm pheromone emitted when a bee stings another animal smells like a banana. Drone bees, the males, are larger and do not have stingers.
The female bees worker bees and queens are the only ones that can sting, and their stinger is a modified ovipositor. The queen bee has a barbed but smoother stinger and can, if need be, sting skin-bearing creatures multiple times, but the queen does not leave the hive under normal conditions.
Her sting is not for defense of the hive; she only uses it for dispatching rival queens, ideally before they can emerge from their cells. Queen breeders who handle multiple queens and have the queen odor on their hands are sometimes stung by a queen. The stinger consists of three parts: a stylus and two barbed slides or lancets , one on either side of the stylus.
The bee does not push the stinger in but it is drawn in by the barbed slides. The slides move alternately up and down the stylus so when the barb of one slide has caught and retracts, it pulls the stylus and the other barbed slide into the wound. When the other barb has caught, it also retracts up the stylus pulling the sting further in. This process is repeated until the sting is fully in and even continues after the sting and its mechanism is detached from the bee's abdomen.
When a female honey bee stings a person, it cannot pull the barbed stinger back out, but rather leaves behind not only the stinger, but also part of its abdomen and digestive tract, plus muscles and nerves. This massive abdominal rupture kills the honey bee. Honey bees are the only bees to die after stinging. The main component of bee venom responsible for pain in vertebrates is the toxin melittin ; histamine and other biogenic amines may also contribute to pain and itching.
It was discussed on SmileShop but everything was taken down. The main thread page is stored on some search engines but the links to where you can download his version don't work. Is this true stereo because I've heard some bad fake stereo versions. C6H12O6 , Jun 1, Location: USA. There's no way to re-create the original, since it was never finished, but I think listening to the unfinished tracks found on various boots is the better way to go vs. The original sessions feature some truly amazing music, just fill-in the missing parts in your head.
The boxed set is overkill, but vol 16 is really good, and it even includes the original album art. Now, if only I could find a Vigotone Smile I'll try to find it and edit my post Location: In a cave. It's one heck of a fun ride and you get to hear SMiLE sung by the voices it was written for. Sure, there are some changes in sound quality as FastEddie moves from source to source, but the production, playing and singing should make you forget all about that.
If it doesn't, you need help. If you just want to listen to really nice sounding versions of the songs and running order is unimportant to you then look for MokMok's mix.
