Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Sweat Bees
Class:Insecta Order:Hymenoptera Family:Halictidae


I did not know that there was an official pain index. From Wikipedia's page on Sweat Bees: "Their attraction to sweat makes them a nuisance, as they will sting if squeezed or squashed against one's flesh. Their sting is rated a 1.0 on the Schmidt Sting Pain Index..."

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
