More About Bees...
Prevent Stings! Try not to attract bees. If they come around, don't
frighten them. Check what you should do in areas with bees:
Avoid using scented products. This means hair spray, scented
soaps, perfume, and lotions.
Avoid brightly colored clothes, especially flowered patterns.
Keep food and soda cans covered.
Wear hats, shoes, and long pants.
If a bee comes around, hold very still.
If a bee lands on you, don't swat at it. Don't panic! Just
blow at it gently. It will move.
First Aid: If you get stung, have an adult remove the
stinger as soon as possible.
Wash the sting with soap and water.
Put ice or cool water on it for 10 to 30 minutes.
To ease the pain and itching, try putting one of these on the
sting: alcohol wipes, or a paste made of baking soda and water, or
meat tenderizer and water.
