While a sting from an insect like a bee, wasp, or hornet can be unpleasant for anybody, for those with a potentially life-threatening allergy to insect stings, the presence of these unpredictable flying creatures can be anxiety provoking to say the least.
    Planning ahead can help you enjoy your time outdoors and stay safe, even if you have an allergy to bee and wasp stings.
    • If prescribed, carry an epinephrine auto-injector with you at all times. Make sure you, and at least one person who is with you, understand how and when to use it.
    • If you are stung, use your epinephrine as soon as possible—even if you aren’t yet having symptoms, or you don’t know what stung you. Ensure you move away from the area as an insect may sting more than once—only honeybees die after one sting. [1] Call 911, or your local emergency number, immediately. It’s always better to be over-cautious.
    • Some stinging insects can be attracted to the loud noise and vibrations of machinery, like leafblowers and lawnmowers. [1]
    • Food and drinks are a big part of summer fun, but be sure to be careful if you have an insect sting allergy. Bees and wasps are attracted to human food—and the stickier and sweeter, the better for them! Consume foods indoors to be safe, and use a closed-top or clear drinking container so you can see the contents of your drink before consuming [1]… This is a good safety tip for anybody!
