Honey Bee Stings & Treatment

Generally, Honey Bee stings do not pose a health concern unless the individual stung is allergic or sensitive. If the stung person is allergic, immediately go to the hospital or use an epinephrine shot, if available. Worker bees have a barbed stinger with an attached poison sac that is left in the skin once stung. Remove the stinger and poison sac promptly after being stung by scraping with tweezers or fingernails.
