I'm sorry, I get stung in the nostrils and on the neck and head quite regularly - it is a pain. Other than smarting something awful for less than a minute, it really does nothing else.
I have much greater fear of heat stroke and other heat related afflictions than I do of bee stings. I keep a veil handy if too many are trying to sting me in the face, not so much because of the stings, but so I can see without stinging bees obscuring my view. I am much more amazed at the machismo it takes to work in gear during our sweltering Spring/Summer/Autumn than at learning to safely work bees without such "protection". Our local news is always carrying stories about how some young, fit, athletic, college student succumbed to our heat. I don't plan to ever be a subject to one of those articles.
