If you are concerned about bee stings, the first thing to remember is that prevention is
better than cure: leave hives and wild bee nests as well as foraging bees, well
alone and allow the bees to go about their business in peace. Keep away from honey bee swarms.

Although stings can happen, the fact is, most bees rarely sting, unless they are provoked or feel threatened. Only females can sting (although not all species can do so), and would only sting if they felt it necessary to defend themselves or their colonies, honey combs (with honey bees) and nests. See these bee sting facts. Unless you genuinely have a severe allergy, most people can get over a sting pretty quickly. Heck, the experience is not like child birth or kidney stones!
In truth, bees are very important, and the real risks from a stinging incident are actually not that great, but it's easy for the dangers to be exaggerated. I can never understand why some people would rather expose a child to toxic chemicals in an attempt to stave off bees, rather than let the bees be!
