Some people have a violent allergic reaction to bee stings and sometimes die! whereas others simply curse the things and recognise they perform a very useful role in our environment.

Only if you annoy them. Which is more than can be said for priests, politicians and philosophers.

I think the existence of bees is very good and bad for human beings. We should treat this problem dialectically. Since nature allows the existence of bees, it must have its inevitability. However, for some humans, when bitten by bees, serious allergic reactions may occur, and some people may even die. This is a very annoying thing.
For me personally, I am even more convinced that the presence of bees is of great benefit to humans, for example, it can collect honey for humans.

On the whole, bees are a massive benefit to humans.

Only if they sting you.

They are very good at pollinating plants along with many other insects.

Another question maybe should be asked is, are humans harmful to bees, and are the pesticides used to control pests harmful to humans. If you believe pesticide firms than no pesticides are not harmful to humans, if you read other websites then we are harmful to bees http://sos-bees.org/causes/

If pesticides are used to control pests then

I didn't know that bees bite people.
