Remedy for Bee sting pain...

Fall is a big time for bees.

Bees are around all spring and summer, but fall seams to bring them the most.

I find they are also more aggressive.

I say Bees, but more than likely they are hornets ans wasps.


Anyway, I was stung yesterday.  Got me pretty good.

I was at my uncles home and he took me into the garage for his remedy.

He sprays the bite area and in 30 seconds the pain was gone!

Oh, I would feel a little twinge now and then, but it was not hurting.


So, what is this great wonder spray...

Most guys have it in their garages...



Yup!  I would not have believed it if it were not tried on myself.

So, the next time you or someone you know gets bit...pull out the WD40!

WD40.. good for so many things.. I have a friend that sprays it on his catfish bait and he reels them in!

William - I would have never guessed that WD40 would remedy a bee or wasp sting. I will have to keep that in mind. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks William.  Who would have thunk it!  I'm going to the garage and make sure I have some in stock.

It must be the petroleum product in it. The old fashioned remedy was coal oil. I will keep this in mind.

Nick stepped on a nest of these last week up in Michigan, ran down to the creek and slapped on some mud to draw out the poison.
