A Conversation for Wasps

Vinegar and Bicarb

Post 1


When I was young we were taught Vinegar for Vasps and Bicarb for Bees.
Wasp stings are apparently alkaline while bee stings are acidic. So putting the other stuff on them neutralises them.

Make sure you know what stung you before you try and deal with it using these - you don't want to add to your problems.

Also with a bee sting make sure the poison bag isn't still attached otherwise if you try and pinch it out you merely squeeze the bag and inject yourself with more of the stuff that is hurting you. A quick sideways brush is meant to be a good approach.
