No, and it would probably do more harm than good!
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.
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.
I've been studying and working with the wool-carder bee for 3 years. Never been stung. Females are very non-aggressive and will usually just try and get out of your way. M…ales are aggressive to other bees, but can't sting you. Very fun bee to watch, so take the time to watch them! Without fear of being stung.
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.
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

i believe that the pain caused by a bee sting is caused by a strong acid which is injected by the sting itself. The substance in the toothpaste which causes the pain to …be minimised is not actually an acid, but a base. This substance is most likely sodium bicarbonate, which will neutalise the acid. Conversely wasp stings are caused by a strong alkalai substance and can be neutralised with a strong acid (such as vinegar)
Honey badgers do get stung, but they have a coarse coat and a tough skin which bees find difficult to penetrate with their stings.

Avoid running up and down stairs .Doing knee exercise will help in stretching and strengthening the muscles that support the knee. Proper footwear is also important, especially if walking or running on hard surfaces. Keep your weight under control, it will reduce stress on the knee.

Bees sting out on you when you bother them, the more you boher them, the more bees sting you.
No..that's an old wifes tale. Try some insect bite creams from the RX drug store. Never heard of that. I have heard of making a paste of tenderizer and a small amount… of water to put on a sting. Also baking soda paste. Absolutely! It is not a wife's tale at all. When I was young and we were working out in the woods and got stung, the first thing we did is pee on it. I think it is the amonia in the urine. These other guys that answered are city people. It is country people that know about this home remedy.
Make a paste of water and baking soda and spread it on the site of the sting. This will take the pain away.
