How long does it take for bees to die?

There is a bee in my room and I don't know what to do. If it was a mosquito or a fly I would try to kill it but bees sting when attacked or provoked. Will it die it if is away from its hive for more than 4 days?

  • Best is to open the window and chase the bee towards the window with an object. Like a cloth or so. No touching indeed or it will sting!
    I'm afraid it may take days to die and you don't want to sleep with a bee in the room :o

    • It died! My mother killed it by vacuming it into the vacume.

    • I see... that will have been effective I guess... bye bye bee :-)

  • just catch it and put it outside. they dont actively attack people. use a cup and some paper.

    Im and ecologist, and bees are on a global decline, which is really sad as they literally have a direct benefit on agriculture.

    Even if it were to sting you, it doesn't hurt.

  • Queen's average: 3 to 4 years
    Worker bees: few weeks in the summer and several months in areas with extended winter

  • It depends, if it's a honey bee or something else, but no, they take a lot longer, but what you can do is open a window, and they'll go after the sun.

  • have you tried opening a window? bees also die after stinging, its wasps (hornets) that are worse. they will keep stinging.

  • If you starve it I will still take many days. Let it go out the window

  • It won't purposely try to sting you, just trap it in a glass and release it outside.

  • Just try to kill it, if by some way it stings you, it will die anyways.
