OK, it figures. I have kept bees off and on for about 6 years, and this year my hives are doing great. Problem is, I noticed (and tried to ignore) an increasingly sever reaction to the occassional sting. Then a few weeks ago I opened a hive on a wet, over-cast day (dumb, I know) and took about 6 or 7 immediate stings. Next thing I know... I am in the emergency room. Bad reaction, doc says it will be worse next time. Good thing my son was with me or I would have been in a bad way.
So... what would you do? The doc says to find a new hobby... I don't want to give it up, but being an ER patient is not to smart either. Thoughts, comments, or experiences? Thanks.
