Bee Stings

Bee stings are a fact of life for beekeepers and every bee sting results in a reaction in some form or another such as pain, swelling, redness, itchiness. The reaction may last for a few minutes or a few days.

For most people a bee sting is usually a minor problem. It hurts for a little bit, but there are no major effects.

In most cases, over time, the human body develops antibodies; the first stings might cause swelling and an unpleasant reaction, the effect of bee stings several months later is hardly felt.

Most sensitive areas for bee stings are:
  • Face, mouth, tongue, ears, eyes and neck.
  • Ankles.
  • Any soft tissue, particularly under arms, lower torso.
