Are ground bees stings dangerous?
Ground bees stings are not dangerous to your health. Of course, if you are allergic to bee stings, then they would be very dangerous, but generally they are not.

A bee will sting when it feels threatened. Bees are generally docile. If one flies near you it is very unlikely to sting if you don't make sudden movements towards it, so do…n't try to swat it away. It will soon lose interest in you and fly away.
If the sting is not gone or almost gone in a week, or if the sting increases in diameter over 2" or 3", get medical help. Note that this answer addresses ONLY the questio…n of swelling. I assume we've already ruled out an emergent allergic/anaphylactic reaction and that some time has passed. It is believed that the venom produced in a bee is sometimes beneficial to human being (cases as fever, head ache...). It may be painful but not harmful!
Put some vinegar on the sting, or use something cold like ice or a frozen lollipop to cool it and relieve pain. The best thing to use though is 'Anthisan' its a bite and s…ting cream and it relieves pain, stops it itching and doesn't become inflammed! Best thing to do! It also shrinks the sting.
If it is definitely a bee sting and not a wasp sting, the first thing to do is remove the barb because as long as the barb is in your skin, the venom will continue to pump int…o your body. (A wasp doesn't leave the barb behind.) You could then try a proprietary brand of antihistamine. You will have localised pain and swelling of the surrounding area, the severity of which varies from person to person. Wasp stings tend to be more painful than bee stings, but get the barb out!
A bee's stinger is located at the exterior end of its abdomen.
no sit down and relax
Why is a second bee sting more dangerous then the first bee sting to a person who is allergic to bee stings?
That's really simple: an allergic reaction is when your body responds excessively to something, making way too many antibodies to counter the antigen. When antibodies are made…, Memory B cells are also made. These help identifying the antigen faster the next time. So the next time you're stung by a bee, the Memory B cells recognise the antigen and antibodies are made faster than the first time. There's you're answer, sorry for my English incase I misspelled something, I'm not from America.
Stings from ground bees are not usually serious, and the pain should pass after an hour or two, though the swelling may take a day or two to go completely. If your symptoms ar…e more serious or if the swelling persists, seek medical advice.
if it is a bee sting it is an acid sting so then put vinegar an alkilie will level out the ph [the level of intensity in acid s and alkilies] and if it is a wasp sting put lem…on juice or some mild form of acid on it and it will level it out
Ground bees don't usually leave their stings behind because they are not barbed.
Answer Yes they can be dangerous and some people make the mistake of not realizing that they could be wasps or hornets. In British Columbia we have …hornets that live in mud under water! Many people have been stung with them. If you or anyone in your family (including pets) are bitten give Benadryl antihistamines (ready label for adults and children) and if a pet is bit, take them immediately the vets. You are going to need an exterminator to help you rid yourself of these ground pests.
In my experience, the day before yesterday morning, not dangerous but painful for a couple of days. much like a wasp sting but with less swelling. However they make a lo…t of noise buzzing and dream of delivering great big stings in proportion to their impressive size. Mike Lean
Honey badgers do get stung, but they have a coarse coat and a tough skin which bees find difficult to penetrate with their stings.
For any bee sting the most important thing to do first is to remove the sting if it has been left behind because it can continue to inject venom for a minute or more after the… bee has gone. Do not use tweezers or grip the sting between finger and thumb because if you do so you risk squeezing more venom into the wound. Scrape the sting out using your thumbnail or something like the back of a knife or the edge of a credit card. A piriton or similar anti-histamine tablet will help reduce swelling, and if the sting is painful a paracetamol tablet may help. An ice compress can also be used on the sting site. For the biggest majority of people a bee sting is just a painful nuisance, but a very few people are hypersensitive to bee venom and can react more strongly. If a person feels dizzy or nauseous he should sit down and rest until the feeling passes. In an extreme case the victim may go into anaphylactic shock where blood pressure drops dramatically and tissues in the throat swell making breathing difficult. In this case medical help is very urgently required. the only thing wrong with this is ...... everything not just one thing everuything so weird i do not like this
Make a paste of water and baking soda and spread it on the site of the sting. This will take the pain away.
it depends on if you are allergic and what type of bee. bee stings can be deadly to some people.
