Bee Stings

Bees are a human’s best friend… bee stings are not.

Sight of a black and yellow flying insect and the notoriety of bee stings will forever be associated. And when these insects are found in your personal space – whether they are buzzing around your head or setting up camp in your house or yard – can vary from nonchalance to annoyance to downright fear and panic. The reasons for the reactions might not be entirely clear and might be completely irrational, but how you react can be important for a number of reasons.

The best of all these reasons – a win-win-win situation – is one where a) you avoid being attacked, b) the insects can be removed or avoided without being killed, and c) the environment remains a healthy place with a piece of its ecosystem left alive and intact and poisonous sprays held at bay.

It is all about staying calm. Why? Explore this and other issues below…
