I've found that the worst place to take a sting is anywhere on the wife or neighbor!! shocked

 Wink

I agree about the wife and neighbers.  The first time out to the hives, she got stung on the inside of the bend of the elbow. Days later she is still hurting her.

I must be one of the luck ones.

Me, within the last two week I've only been stung five time.
one each, on the thumb, forehead, the Palm of the hand,the back of the hand and one time just above the belt line on the side.  Four were gotton about within 15 min of the event, the one between the eye still burned 3 hour later because it was hot and sweat was getting into it.

One of the following must be my salvation. A) I come from hardy beekeeper stock in my anstegry, B) I've built up a good tolerance to sting or C) the lord has been very kind to me.

It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought of as a fool than to open ones mouth and in so doing remove all doubt.

If you're a guy then I would say "south of the border"

How often does this happen?   I make a point of always wearing pants when I work bees

Believe me, they can crawl up your pants.  But I think the worst is in the face, although I have had them "south of the border"

I have had them crawl up my leg before.  Not much fun when its happening to you but to watch it happen to someone else always cracks me up.  Nothing funnier than watching the pilsbury doboy doing the bee in the pant dance

Worst place IMO is the nasal septum, that area right between the nostrils. Feels like you were cold cocked, activates the tear ducts so you can't see and your nose goes runny.

Its an awful sight!

As far as lifestyle modification goes I'd say lower leg.  I got stung a couple months ago on the ankle.  Like Dragonfly, I ended up not being able to bend my ankle or put on a shoe and laid around with it elevated wrapped in ice for a couple days.  It just kept swelling when I stood very long.

eye

My brother got stung on his eyeball by a wasp when he was younger.  They had to take him to the hospital for it, I think mostly because they weren't sure what kind of wasp it was and they wanted to make sure it wasn't actually laying an egg that would hatch out a larvae that would consume his eye or something.  Of course he also said it was quite painful.  I've always been a little leery of wasps since then, but I'm really trying to live with them now that I know they not only eat the caterpillars that eat my garden, but also they eat up some black widow spiders, and we had a bunch of them last year.

Anyway, I have to agree with the people who said wife/neighbors.

Folks at our bee club have said that a bee sting to the eye will leave that eye blind.  I'm gonna have to take that one on faith...If someone wants to test it, just let me know how it turns out.

My brother got stung on the tip of his Johnson but he swears that it was by a wasp.  That taught him not to go al fresco when working in the produce department, and it leave us with one hilarious family story about Uncle Joe.

My brother has better vision than I do... so I'd have to say that's an urban legend... of course, he sure couldn't see out of that eye for about a week... he couldn't even open his eye for a few days.
