Quick Sting Relief

by Steve Buckner
(Murfreesboro, TN, USA)

Plaintain is a weed that grows wild in the Southeast. You just have to take a few steps to find some growing in our bee yard. Pull a few leaves and stick them in your pocket before you open your hives. If you get stung, chew a little piece up and rub it on the spot for quick relief and much less pain.
