So...got my first sting to the face today. After inspecting a hive I was packing things up a few hundred feet from the hive and a bee flew off my wife's jacket and stung me right between the eyes! The killer is I took my suit off seconds before this happened lol. I've been stung but never had quite this much swelling before. To those unlucky enough to have had a bee sting in the face how long and how severe was the swelling? I would put a picture of my swelling but I can't figure out how to add pictures to messages.
