Summer Safety: The Buzzzz on Bee Stings

It’s summertime – kids are outside constantly and will inevitably encounter one of the most feared childhood enemies: the bee or wasp…

We’re all used to bees hovering around our sweet, sticky drink or food residue, but what we often forget is that bees and wasps may be nesting out in the yard where your child may be playing. These nests can be quite dangerous if disturbed - and hundreds of our winged friends might come out angry and attack (hence the term “mad as a hornet”). In fact, after one bee sting, a hormone is emitted that attracts other bees to sting as well – so get away from the area quickly if a bee hive is disturbed! Keep an eye on your yard for potential nesting areas – if you find one, be sure to exterminate it safely and properly before your children can find it.
