When Was the Last Time You Were Stung by a Bee?

Picnicking on the beach after an open water swim, I was stung by a bee and it still smarts.

The bees were interested in our food and a little aggressive. Flowers, bees typical food source, disappear as the seasons change and bees become more daring in their search for sustenance. Most often, bee stings just cause swelling and irritation, but they can be deadly in the case of an allergic reaction. Yikes.

I hadn't been stung in years, and needed a little refresher course in how to treat the sting. Things like using tweezers to remove a stinger can cause more venom to be released. I was wondering about you all . . .
