    Don't just pick at the stinger, you have to carefully remove it. Also Just ice it and the swelling will go down.

    Sorry to hear that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img]

    I've heard a paste of baking soda applied to a sting can help but I can't remember if I've ever tried it. I think I've also heard of putting a melted aspirin on a sting.

    If the stinger is still in, gently scrape it out with a credit card so as not to squeeze in more venom by squeezing.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Ouch! That really sucks! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] Just getting stung once hurts enough. Hope can get the stingers out and a quick recovery. You know what kind of bees they are? Did you walk into a nest?

    I have had several bee problems this year. Although my concoction that I made with the 2 liter has been working wonders. I have killed three nest so far and without any stings yet *knocking on wood*. I am sure my day is coming...

    ps
    I relize bees are good but having nests around your house is not safe when others are coming on over. I love bees and in know way tend to act mean toward them. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow... I've never been stung by a bee my whole life. I've learned myself a good technique: when a bee comes around you, freeze completely and it'll go away. When a bee comes chasing after you, run like the dickens and hope you outrun it [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
