How to deal with bee or wasp stings?

Precaution comes first. Stay away from grass thickets and bushes, where bees and wasps build their ‘homes.’

Shun a beehive or wasps’ nest; Never come close to it.

Wear light-coloured and smooth-surfaced clothing, because the visual system of a bee or wasp is highly sensitive to the movement of a dark object across a light background.

If someone happens to stir a swarm of bees or wasps and is attacked by them, the only thing to do is cover the head and neck with his own clothes and run away in the opposite direction or lie down right where he is. Never try to fight back, for it only begets more virulent attacks.

If someone is unfortunately stung, he should remove the sting with a needle or tweezers. Do not squeeze or pinch in case the venom goes into the body. Then, clinse the wound with liquid ammonia or soda water, or even urine, to neutralise the toxin. Soak a towel in cold water and put it on the wound, and pains could be relieved. When all is done, go to the hospital.
