Identifying an insect

Elouise
I would include a picture but don't know how to, I'm a little concerned as my youngest boy and his dad are petrified of anything that stings.

Without seeing an image I really can't speculate responsibly....Generally speaking, however, if you think the appendages coming out of the rear of an insect are "stingers," then they are *not* stingers.  A stinger is usually a retractable, short, needle-like organ that you do not see until it is deployed (causing you pain).  I'd relax.
