Bees are flying insects closely related to wasps and ants, known for their role in pollination and, in the case of the best-known bee species, the European honey bee, for producing honey and beeswax.

The painful stings of bees are mostly associated with the poison gland and the Dufour’s gland which are abdominal exocrine glands containing various chemicals. In Lasioglossum leucozonium, the Dufour’s Gland mostly contains octadecanolide as well as some eicosanolide. There is also evidence of n-triscosane, n-heptacosane, and 22-docosanolide. However, the secretions of these glands could also be used for nest construction.
