Please note, most bees rarely sting, unless they are provoked or feel
threatened. Only females can sting, and would do so if they felt it
necessary to defend themselves or their colonies, honeycombs or nests.
The first thing to remember is that prevention is better than cure: leave foraging bees, as well as hives and nests well alone and allow the bees to go about their business in peace. Don’t flap and try to keep calm, as bees seem to sense panic, and this may provoke a stinging incident.
But what if you are stung by a bee?
If you are a person who likes to treat ailments using natural and plant based products, there are plenty of books available that might be useful to help you create your own 'natural remedy first aid kit'.
Some media seem to love dramatizing deaths by bee stings. You could almost get the impression that bee stings are a common danger.
The fact is, such incidences are rare – you are more likely to get struck by lightning than you are to suffer a fatal bee sting.
There is greater risk of threat from other humans than bees. You can read more about this in my page providing quick facts about bee stings.
Below are some possible bee sting treatments, including a venom extractor kit.
Prevention is better than cure!
