My 15 year old son was helping move hives Sunday. He got stung on the hand below the thumb. You can see where the sting was in the last couple of photos. I watched him remove the stinger he did it like he was taught. The sting was only in for a couple of seconds. It happened in the truck after we lhad loaded. He had a little local swelling after the sting nothing unusual. The photos show what his hand looked like 24 hours later. This was only his 3rd sting his first 2 didnt do this. The doctor says his bee days are over. Which I dont think hurts his feelings.
