Bees are a familiar nuisance for anyone who heads outdoors. While bees may seem like a minor nuisance, a bee sting can be incredibly painful. If you or a loved one gets stung by a bee, it is important to take all of the steps needed to relieve the pain and heal the site of the sting. The first step to take when you get a bee sting is to scrape the stinger away. By scraping, rather than squeezing, the stinger, you can ensure that no more venom is released into the bloodstream. Once the stinger has been removed, you will be ready to wash the area and apply a cold compress. For assistance with your bee removal needs, be sure to contact a company offering pest control in Queens. To learn more about how to deal with a bee sting, check out this video.
