Which is most painful, a wasp sting or a honey sting?

both hurt about the same unless the wasp is a big one... but the thing with wasps is they can sting multiple times, a honey bee can only sting once, the stinger pulls loose from their body and they die (this also makes them more reluctant to sting, unlike wasps which can be quite aggressive)

I agree with what Deana said, and I would add that a honey bee sting can be seriously bad for a person who is allergic.

A wasp sting is more painful because a wasp can stink you countless times but a honeybee can only sting you once.

I've been stung by both more than once. I'm not allergic to them. I think the wasp stings are much more painful.

Wasp. For me if I get stung by a red wasp and I don't have an inhaler or hospital near by. I will most likely die. :/
