Why does toothpaste soothe a bee sting?
toothpaste neutralizes the protein in the bee sting
neutralizes the protein in the sting, i dont think its safe
The pH scale of a bee sting is 3.5, so if you get stung by a bee, putting toothpaste on the bee sting should help because the bee sting is weak acid but toothpaste is week alkali so it should balance it out.
toothpaste would not cure a bee sting it has no cemicals in to cure a bee sting
The chemicals left by a bee sting and wasp sting are slightly different. The wasp sting has a base which is neutralized by the vinegar. Bee stings are acidic and are not neutralized by the vinegar.
The calcium oxide helps soothe bee stings. It is used to naturalize the acid that is in a bee sting.
Toothpaste reduces the pain and swelling of a bee sting (because toothpaste is a base and the bee sting is acidic) Toothpaste doesn't help wasp stings because wasp stings and toothpaste are alkali. (However vinegar works well on wasp stings because vinegar is acidic)
Yes, it would.
A bee sting hurts because it is an acid. You can neutralise it with any alkali, like toothpaste.
becaúse its alkaili
to neutralise a bee sting you use alkaline substances; such as toothpaste, indigestion tablets(that can dissolve) washing up powder and washing up liquid
To neutralise a bee sting venom we use toothpaste, but wasp venom vinegar. resoures: DR.Abdullah Fouad AL-Rumaih 7N, science works 2
Toothpaste and vinegar, Abdullah Fouad AL-Rumaihi 7N.
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.
Toothpaste or indigestion tablets can be used for bees stings (externally, of course !!) but they are not so important. See also the link below.
As bee stings are acidic you need to put a akaline on it to neutrilise it. Out of day to day items you can put washing powder or toothpaste other the sting. This may sound weird but it does reduce the swelling, ichyness and pain.
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… Read More
Pour vinegar where you have been stung and it should reduce the pain as a wasp sting is alkaline and the vinegar is an acid so it should neutralize it. And the same for a bee sting, but you rub toothpaste on that as the bee sting is acid and toothpaste is alkaline! Hope that helped...Thanks so much answer community you helped my 4 year old daughter ali wakbar stop stinging, v v v helpful!TAR… Read More
you can but t is better to use mud or credit card (business card etc.)
The bee might sting, but it will only sting if provoked.
a bee sting is acid a wasp sting is base
You put milk on a bee sting because a bee sting is full of acid and by putting an alkali solution on the sting it neutralises the sting (balances it out) so the sting doesnt hurt.
yes a bee sting is acid
bee sting is acidic
A Bee sting contains a acid
Bumble bees are bees. If they sting, it is a bee sting. Robber flies can bite humans. It is not similar to a bee sting.
Well, wasp sting is more poisonous than bee sting
vinegar can be used to cure a bee sting.
if you itch a bee sting it will get bigger
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.
The nature of the bee and wasp sting is that they are usually inflammatory and acidic.
Bees come in 3 versions: Queen (female bee, only one per hive) - can sting many times. Worker - can sting once (the sting is barbed and comes away in the target - bee dies). Drone (male bee) - has no sting.
The wasp will try to sting the bee back, with a jaggered bee sting in its side, while the bee - wich would now be going crazy - is slowly dying and giving the wasp a hard time to actually sting the bee sucsessfully.
A bee does not sting itself, but a wasp sometimes will. Bees will sting other bees if they are fighting.
because simply you have been stung and therfore a bee sting will sting. this is the same for a wasp sting, a wasp sting also stings if you have been stung.
It can't. A drone (male bee) cannot sting.
a bee sting is a strong acid.
A male (drone) honey bee can't sting.
A bee sting will start hurting immediately.
If you meant a 'bee stinger' - then yes. Unlike wasps, the sting of a bee has a tiny barb - when a bee stings something, the barb makes the sting stay put. This means the sting pulls out of the bees body - killing the bee in the process.
To neutralize a bee sting simply apply bicarbonate of soda to the sting. if this does not work then apply ice.
If, as is usually the case, the bee loses its sting it cannot sting again. If it manages to withdraw the sting it can sting again.
No, the sting is normally retracted, and only extended when the bee is about to sting.
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.
well i know how to fix swelling of a bee sting mix some baking soda with water a little then rub it on the bee sting
No, male bees (drones) do not have a sting. Worker bees (all female) have a barbed sting which is left behind when the bee stings. The bee will then die. The queen bee has a smooth sting which she can withdraw, so she is able to sting more than once.
There are two varieties of black bee. One is the carpenter bee which can, and does, sting. The other is a variety of bumblebee which does not have a sting.
to sting: stechen sting as in bee sting: Stich
The depth of a bee sting penetration depends on the bee. Some bee stings are shallow, and the bee is able to pull out its singer and sting again. In other cases, the stinger becomes embedded in the human flesh and needs to be pulled out.
To neutralize a bee sting a few remedies work well including oatmeal applied to the sting, and also tobacco applied to the sting.
A bee sting is acid, a wasp sting is alkaline, that's why you should put bicarbonate of soda on a bee sting and vinegar or lemon juice on a wasp's if you want to neutralize it and take away the pain.
