African Honey Bee & Wasp Removal

How to Deal with Bees

The noticable difference between bees and wasps when they sting is that the bee will release their stinger after penetration while the wasp will relocate and administer a second sting. African honey bees are a particularly aggressive type of bee that will attack, call in troops (suspectedly with a sent) & attemt to kill any animal in it's path. Their hives can grow quickly and need to be removed as soon as they are found.

How To Identify & Deal With Bees & Wasps

Bees generally have what looks like fur from their abdomen down. Wasps are typically more smooth and notably elongated. Both the sting of a bee and the sting of a wasp can cause allergic reaction. In the event of a sting, remove the stinger if still present using the side of a business card or credit card in a razor shave motion focusing on not pinching the stinger. Look for signs of a reaction such as puffiness & redness in the area. Ice can help but monitor the sting site closely and if the reaction progresses, Call Your Local Poison Control Immediately.


Treating Bee and Wasp Stings

There is no anti-venin (anti-venom) for bee and wasp stings so the cure in most cases will be time. Again though, be sure to monitor your health immediately following a sting. Even if you do not think that you are allergic, you could produce a reaction. Epinepherine is the commonly used cure to an allergic reaction and some may already have an Epi-Pen or other device that they may use if it has already been prescribed by a Licensed Doctor Only.
