Yes, bumble bees will sting, but they have to be provoked into doing it.
you can put mud on the sting to sooth it and the mud is supposed to draw out the venome I am no expert on the mud treatment but a bumble bee sting requires similar treatment to that of a honey bee. There are some pretty good answers and videos covering that.

In general, no. But there is a species of Bumble Bee called the Cuckoo Bumble Bee (Bombus vestalis) that is parasitic on existing nests, and will kill by stinging, the original queen.
No, they don't. Unlike bumble bees, honey bees die soon after they sting because their stingers have barbs that make it impossible for the bee to remove it, and instead the venom sack pulls free of the body, mortally wounding the bee. Bumble bees do not have barbs on their stinger, making it possible for the bee to remove it's stinger, and sting repeatedly.
A honey bee worker is the only bee that has a barbed sting which gets stuck, all other bees have a smooth sting which can easily be withdrawn.
it depens how hard you kill it is you squashed it once then it could stink .
