Sweat bees range from less than one-fourth of an inch to three-fourths of an inch in length and are considered nonaggressive bees, according to BeeInformed.org.

In keeping with the insect's name, not only are the bees attracted to pollen, they will feed on perspiration and tears, often landing on humans to lick their sweat. "If she did she could have induced the bees to produce venom... she could have gone blind". A sting usually only occurs if one of the bees is pressed against the skin.

"They are still alive, they've been sent as specimens to another organisation and will be studied", said Dr Hong.

While there are more than 1,000 species of sweat bees in the United States, Canada and Central America, according to Terminix, they are nearly painless, and only sting when they are provoked.
