A Stinger is an item commonly dropped by a Bee or Killer Bee when killed. It is an ingredient in Sleep Darts.

Stingers can be obtained by either killing Bees or Killer Bees with Weapons, or with the help of other Mobs, or by catching Bees or Killer Bees with a Bug Net then murdering them in the inventory. If the player or any mob attacks a Bee (including catching them with the Bug Net) remaining members of the same Bee Hive (or Bee Box) will emerge as Killer Bees and all members of the hive in the vicinity will target the attacker.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Stingers can be used to craft Boat Repair Kits.
