I have heard old timers say if you get stung about 100 times a year then you develop immunity. I am not really willing to test that myself. Though I have been stung quite a bit lately from my new hive.

Well I should be there soon started doing cut outs and a mean hive can do about twenty if not carful
BTW I am new to the forum

I have very good immunity. I stand very well 20 stings per day-
My next door beekeeper 600 metres away cannot stand 2 stings.
When he gets one sting, he must look, if he must drive to hospital.

I think that it depends on person. There is no rule how it goes. Everyone will see it.
