Yep--they hurt. I had one nail my left hand ring finger when I opened the bail of an open-faced spinning reel (she had been sitting, unnoticed, on the bail). Hurt like you know what. Fortunately, I had the presence of mind to whip off my wedding ring before my finger began to look like a frankfurter a few seconds later!
Oh, well, they're pretty small compared to us, so I guess it's fair that they have evolved some defenses! Still hurts, though!

They are a world wide pest. I was playing outdoors at a small private festival when I got stung on my pick hand. The obvius cursing that followed was meant to be private but when one plays and sings into a sound board it becomes shared emotion. Didn't ruin the day overall but sure gave most a grin on their faces.

My husband got stung twice on the nose a couple of weekends ago. To quote him, "that'll get your attention." He looked like W. C. Fields for a couple of hours. Mend quick!
