guess I continue with the  liquid benedril.
45 for membership 20 for epipen = 65.00
I always wear my suit I have only been stung once at a time.
I was thinking I would get one for passer by ers.
Guess I will check with my insurance too.
I don't swell at the site but on the other side.
ensample last summer I stepped on one of the ladies barefoot. I'm never barefoot. Go figure.
Stung just under the toe next to the big toe on left foot.
The top of my foot swelled.

Just before a cross country trip stung next to my thumb on right hand top side.
Feeding the bees.
Hand swelled on the little finger side. never at the site.

After stories that I've read including yours I'm thinking that we need to keep the epipen in a zip pocket of our beesuits or shirts. And find a way to keep liquid benedril in the pocket as well without being bulky.

I've read of anaph attacks that come on within one minute. Imagine stumbling thru the yard and into the house, for out in the field to the bee mobile, not being able to breathe.

I lost a good friend a few years ago to yellow jackets.  He had never had a problem with them before.  He was in his 40s and in good health.  Bushhogged a nest and they were on him.  He took a benadryl and went to the hospital.  That wasn't enough.  Ya never know.

Slow- Wow! such a sad story, sorry you lost your good friend. Problem with yellow jackets is that individually they can continute to sting and bite. Bummer

Interesting topic.  Bee stings do not bother me that much except around the eyes and I usually wear a bee suit only with the feral bee swarms that I've caught.  This year I am going to get a head net.  As for stings, I cannot say they help my pain but then again, I hurt almost everywhere and I cannot say they do not help.

As a "New-Bee" I thank God for this forum and places like YouTube and Google Search.

I'm 66 and take a lot of medications for my bad heart. In May 2015 I'll buy my first bees to populate my new hives.

Are bee stings dangerous for people who have had open heart surgery and are on meds for their heart?

I live in the Blue Mountains of Central Pennsylvania.

Thanks for your advice.

CHECK WITH YOUR DOCTOR.............I have had 6 stints installed and have no problems but a few bee stings do not bother me but everyone is different.

Like Caesar said check with your doctor.
But I doubt it unless you are allergic.
So you have ordered your bees and will receive them in may?
Did you buy your bees locally?

And welcome to the forum Stan we are glad to have you.

I also had open heart surgery last year and I was stung a couple times last summer by my girls no problems hardly any reaction at all. It just has to do with each individuals tolerances. Good luck with next summers bee adventures and have a Merry Christmas ! and a Happy New Year (the last part was for every one.)
