    Interesting article regarding the use of a stun gun to treat bee stings. I've heard of it for snake bite but not bee stings. Anyone care to try it out and report back to the rest of the class?

    Sounds like a clear case of the cure being worse than the disease.

    Kind of wonder if three phase would work better than single phase 220 volts.

    Usually I don't do anything at all for a sting. [img]smile.gif[/img] But plantain makes it instantly feel better. I'm not fond of getting jolted by electric fences and a stun gun sounds like an electric fence only worse.

    Being one trained and certified in the use of EIDs (Electronic imobilization devices), I can say that the bee sting is nothing compaired to the effect of Stun gun, belt, or the like. I would not call it pain, Just VERY unconfortable.
