What Attracts Bees To You?
Ah, cookout season. Bees are never invited to the party, but try telling them that. They love the smells of sweet foods and drinks like tea, soda, and watermelon. They also like the aroma of human sweat on your body and want to get a whiff of hair products, lotions, perfumes, and colognes up close. You just are irresistible to them. If you are wearing bright, vibrant colors, they want to get closer in case you are a delectable flower.

How To Treat
A Bee Sting
Bees do not sting unless threatened. All it takes is a careless swat with a hand to aggravate one. If you or your family is stung, here is what to do:
Remove the stinger with a fingernail or a piece of gauze. Never use tweezers to remove a stinger; it can cause more venom to release into the skin.
Wash the site with warm water. Apply cortisone cream to alleviate swelling and itching.
Observe the person who has been stung for symptoms that may indicate an allergic reaction. A person can be allergic to bee stings with no prior warning. Signs and symptoms of anaphylaxis include:
Stings happen occasionally, but you can take preventive measures. Trash cans, recycling bins, grill areas, gardens, and flower beds are food sources for bees, so keep them clean to avoid any danger to your family. Call us for a free quote.
