you can but t is better to use mud or credit card (business card etc.)
With a bee because it is has a acid sting you treat it with a weak alkali like toothpaste. With a wasp because it has a alkali sting you treat it with a weak acid like orange juice! With a bee and wasp sting's, use baking soda(just add a little water and make a paste and put it on the infected area). This is also great for Fire Ant stings.
they treat bee sting in the 1800 by cold food and snow
to neutralise a bee sting you use alkaline substances; such as toothpaste, indigestion tablets(that can dissolve) washing up powder and washing up liquid
Ammonia is basic and the idea is that it will neutralise the formic acid in the sting
To neutralise a bee sting venom we use toothpaste, but wasp venom vinegar. resoures: DR.Abdullah Fouad AL-Rumaih 7N, science works 2
put mud on it. or take a card (credit card, business card) and slide it on the bee sting to remove the stinger
The soda which is alkaline neutralizes the bee sting which is acidic. For wasp stings use vinegar. Vinegar is acidic and neutralizes the alkaline wasp sting.
Any alkali like soap. The venom in a bee sting is acidic and the alkali neutralises the venom. Top Tip: a cold compress can relieve the pain
People think it neutralises the sting, but that doesn't work. The pain from a bee sting only last for a couple of minutes anyway and you could be left with itching. Bicarbonate of soda can help soothe the itching.
Never heard of that. BUT for bees stings use bi carbonate of soda and for wasp stings use vinegar. Because bee stings are acid and the bicarbonate neutralizes it and wasp stings are alkaline so the acid neutralizes it.
You can use Acetaminophen for your Bee sting.
I prepared for the sting of the bee with an audible sigh.
bee sting is acidic you can use bicarbonate of soda to cure the sting . bicarbonate of soda is a alkaline which will make acid and alkaline together neutralize the sting and wasps are same except that u can use vinegar since it is alkaline
Use a dull surface such as a credit card to gently scrape the stinger out. Then you apply disinfectant. If it hurts a lot, you can apply sting relief or an ice pack.
Don't use toothpaste for bee stings. Make a paste with water and baking soda and apply that to the site. Be sure the stinger is removed first, if it is still present.
Vinegar. This also works for some jellyfish stings, they use the same kind of sting. I also heard you could use urine. You can also use red-wine vinegar on bee stings.
Bee sting or Nettle sting contains methanoic acid which causes pain and irritation. When we use a weak base like baking soda on it we get relief.
as a wasp sting contains alkalies to treat it you have to use and acid such as vinegar so if you rub in vinegar in the stung area the pain will ease as you have neutralised the sting
A worker honey bee's sting is barbed, so after she has thrust it into the victim she cannot pull it back out. When the bee pulls away, the sting remains behind, together with the venom sac and often part of the intestine. The resulting damage is fatal to the bee. A queen bee has a smooth sting so she can withdraw the sting and re-use it. Drones (male bees) don't have a sting.
Remove sting with tweezer, clean wound with soap and water, use a mild antiseptic
Bumble bees have stings, and will use them if provoked.
A little sodium bicarbonate could well act as a soothing agent, but contrary to popular belief you can't neutralise either a wasp or bee sting by putting any chemicals on the surface of the skin.
You could use a dock leaf if you have one.
my dad once told me it wont hurt if a wasp stings me after a bee and i asked why.... it is because there is a certain chemical in a bee sting that helps the acid in the sting painless. it can also be the other way round, they both cancel each other out! not a good idea to try this though as it is near imposable for the bee or wasp to sting you… Read More
IF something happens to the bee and it doesn't use its stinger and it dies, it still has its stinger. The stinger is still able to be used even after death. So if you step on a dead bee it can still sting you.
water and ink
In the UK at least, wasp stings are alkaline, so you can help treat the sting with a weak acid such as vinegar. But don't use strong acid!! Bees generally have an acidic sting venom. Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_pH_is_wasp_sting#ixzz1NHvqDbgh A bee's stinger is barbed - when they sting you, the stinger lodges in your skin. After they sting you, they die as internal organs get torn when they leave the stinger in the stingee. A wasp's… Read More
Use seawater to rinse away the tentacles that are still on your skin, then use vinegar to help stop the sting. See the Related link below.
Vinegar neutralises the wasp sting.
I Have Heard To Put Tooth Paste On A Bee Sting And It Really works Also If You Get A Stinger Stuck In Your Body Put Copper On It And It Is Supposed To Take It Out. You can also (safely-ish) use a knife to take the stinger out-or consult with a doctor.
Tincture of mallow will ease the pain but I don't know of anything that will neutralise it.
It may have a slight soothing effect to the skin, but it's a falacy to say it neutralises the sting -- it doesn't.
An antibiotic would be of no help to a bee sting because it is not a bacterial infection. On a broader note, you shouldn't take antibiotics when they are not absolutely necessary. Improper use of antibiotics can lead to the development of antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria.
A bee will develop its stinger for either predation or defense. Unlike bumble bees honey bees can only use their stinger one time.
There are commercial products for dabbing on a sting, either from a wasp or bee, or from nettles. A dock leaf or vinegar is a well known home-made remedy.
I use bite/sting cream but I've never heard of that one before, you should give it a go and come back to this.
A honey bee queens has a sting that is smooth like a hypodermic needle so it can be removed after stinging. A honey bee worker s has a sting that is barbed like a fishing hook so it stays embedded after stinging. However, you do not need to worry about being stung by a queen bee since they only use them against other queens.
Yes it can , but only some certain toothpaste that contains menthol or alcohol can be used to treat pimples better , if you use brands such as (colgate or darlie) it can be used to treat pimples as well , but make sure that it contains the needed ingredients or not it will treat pimples slower
yes because an alkali and acid makes a
a bee has a large sting at the end of the insect and it uses that to defend it's self and it can use it for stinging enimies.
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 sting cream and it relieves pain, stops it itching and doesn't become inflammed! Best thing to do! It also shrinks the sting.
when u get a bee sting try putting on any alkaline metals and if its a wasp use vinegar.
In the UK at least, wasp stings are alkaline, so you can help treat the sting with a weak acid such as vinegar. But don't use strong acid!! Bees generally have an acidic sting venom.
When a bee pulls away after stinging it leaves behind the sting, the venom sac and the muscles. They can can continue injecting venom for up to two minutes after the bee has gone. For this reason the quicker the sting is removed the better. Scrape the sting out with a thumbnail or the back of a knife or something like the edge of a credit card. Do not use tweezers or try to grip… Read More
I'm Not Entirely Sure Of Any Chemicals You Can Use, But If You Make A Paste By Mixing Baking Soda And Water Together And Put It On The Sting And Let It Dry It'll Help. And If You Light A Cigarette And Dip It In Water And Then Dab It On The Sting That Will Help, Too. I Hope This Gives You A Good Answer!!(:
Yes Honey Bees do sting! The sting is found in the abdomen, the larger part of the Bee which also contains the heart, the wax glands and the reproductive organs. There are two glands associated with the sting. One is known as the Bifurcated venom gland which produces the venom and the other is the alkaline gland which produces the lubricant for the sting mechanism. Bees use their sting to defend their colony and when… Read More
Yes, bumble bees are generally larger and are kind of fuzzy. Bumble bees do not lose their sting and die if they use it, as a honey bee will. (add) This is because bumble bees' stingers lack barbs, as honey bees do. This allows the bumble bees to sting repeatedly. The female bumble bee tends to be more aggresive than males(end). Honey Bees tend to be more aggresive
use baking soda For bee and wasp stings. The first thing is to check the sting, look to see if the "stinger" is still there. If so you need to remove it. Be very careful as the stingers sometimes still have the "poison sack" attached and squeezing it will make the situation worse. Use your (long) fingernail, or the edge of a credit card to lightly scrape the stinger out. Next wash the area with… Read More
