    Default Dedicated thread - Pics of bee stings

    I see a lot of threads with one or 2 pics.

    Dedicated sting thread ok with you guys?

    A story to go with them is always good!!

    I took 3 steps into my dads apiary, and was talking to him at the time when one flew into my mouth. Just as I spat her out, she got me on the lip.



    Had a job interview scheduled for the following day - gave it a miss in the end

    I went fter this swarm on the back of a semi trailer in a truckstop about 50 miles from my house.They had been there a few days and were agitated to say the least.

    I went up the ladder and took a brush and scooped them into a cardboard box and then dumped them into a hive body on the ground.About the third trip up the ladder I realized there were bees inside my hood.In all the excitement I had left my zipper un-zipped about an inch.To make a long story short I took about 25 stings to the head and face.

    I drove home with the hive in the back of my truck looking like this.

    Lol...no big swells yet, but here's a bee-venom tattoo right on the end of my thumb! It stung a little, but most of the venom was stuck in the callus.

    It stayed with me for a couple weeks till I got bored at work and dug it out.
