Bee Stings

What to do if you get stung by bees, wasps or hornets.

As soon as possible after being stung place a copper penny or similar (copper) coin on the sting, use selotape to keep it in place and leave it there for about fifteen minutes. The copper somehow neutralizes the sting and almost completely prevents swelling. It may sound like an old wives tale but if you get stung try it, you might just be surprised.
