My Question ;

How did you get stung 30-40 times on each ankle Huh

Drop a frame ?
Trip over a hive ?
Working bees in the dark ?

Sorry about the results.

What ever it was, bet YOU don't do it again !!
Lesson learned !

How did I get stung 30-40 times on each ankle? I took the cover off the first hive to put feeders back on and the bees poured out through the inner cover hole in a solid stream. I had my jeans and bee suit cuffs tucked into my socks like always - never stung there before.

Yesterday noticed 50 or so dead bees in front of each hive. On examination, found them to be missing body parts; legs, etc. Watched for a few minutes and saw a couple of bees ejected from hive to fall dead - robbing at it's best. I reduced the entrances but am not convinced that will take care of the problem.
Later,
John.

I've read that PrimaTeen (sp?) Mist would help. Any thoughts on this?

Thanks, but death was not a consideration - just personal comfort, wanting to walk, etc.

when I was a kid a knocked over one of my uncles hives and got hit about 100 times. I was  only  10 at the time. they used a whole carton of camel cigarette's . took the tobacco out and wet  it down and covered the entire area of my back. the swelling and dizziness went away in about 2 hours. It worked!
only sideffect was the smell and the yellowing. took about a week before the yellow was gone.

The best topical treatment for stings that I've found is Plantain.  Tobacco is probably next, followed by wet crushed aspirin and a few others.

 it also may help with the itching later, although i fine a hairbrush to be more effective. (and the Vagisil)
