Tips For Dealing With Stinging Insects This Season

Some people love to spend time outside when the weather is warm. Nothing ruins a nice day in the great outdoors quite like getting stung by an insect. Below are some tips that will help you deal with stinging insects this season. 

Stay Calm

If you see a stinging insect approaching you, the best thing to do is stay calm. Fight the urge to swat it away. After all, doing this could backfire and provoke the insect to sting you.

What To Do If You Get Stung

In the event that you do get stung, be sure to take the stinger out of the skin as soon as possible. It is important to clean the skin with soap and water. If there is still some inflammation, you can apply ice to the affected area. 

When To Seek Medical Attention

Some stings can actually result in an allergic reaction. Signs of an allergic reaction include wheezing, dizziness, and shortness of breath. If you experience any of these symptoms after getting stung, seek medical attention immediately.
