Stung in the leg

I got stung last night looking in the viewing window and cleaning the corflute board. Absolutely my fault. Shorts and white t-shirt with black ankle socks at 8pm. (still a lot of light here but too late) I had just replaced the board and had a guard buzz my head and she told me to leave. I knew the sign and began walking away and she got me just above the sock. Damn that smarts… :cry:


It’s lucky you’re not allergic to the venom. You get quicker at removing the stings after a while.

Nowhere near as bad as me installing my first package while wearing a black winter jacket :flushed: …lucky I only got stung twice!


@Eva and @Rye I have used the electronic “Bite Away” and it works on bee stings.

@Eva Black seems to be “sting here” signal to a bee. I often work in my hives without gloves but found I got multiple stings around my black watch band on my wrist. Removing my watch as I was suiting up has fixed that problem. I wonder if there is a ‘calming color’?
