Geesh scrapiron...  that's bad guy!!   I broke my number one rule yesterday and didn't put on my veil because I thought..  eh, what the heck!  I'll just check the top box real quick to make sure my queen is laying since I just put that box on a few days ago..  everything was great and just as I went to put the last frame back...  up one came like a bullet from the hive and hit me right above the eye...  now that one hurt for a while...   I did the garlic thing...  and then remembered... dummy, bees don't like garlic..  hehe!!   Oh well...  lesson learned...  but I don't react to the sting nearly like you did...  in fact next day you couldn't tell I had been stung..   must be my resistance from handling venomous snakes and 7 bites.. only two of which were bad...  love my girls though...  I know she didn't mean it...  LOL!!

Put a penny on the sting for a while. Something about the copper. I havent tried it but it sure would be easy enough to try.

The kids have all used a penny taped to it.  They all seem to think it really works.  Very little swelling and only a little itching.

HaHa Yea, that is just 1 sting. I guess I am mildly allergic or something. I tried several times to scrape the stinger out with no luck. Finally had to get the wife to pull it out.
OK antaro, Im callin you out... Lets see that pic!
