Didn't even know this forum existed! WOW! I have been wanting to learn the art of beekeeping. But for now: I was stung yesterday (for the first time in my long life!) by a bumblebee. Don't know if she was a humble-bumble or a wood-bumble, but she managed to place the stinger at least 1/4" deeper than the entry point. I used a drawing salve last night, but now the area is swollen, red and really uncomfortable. Between ring finger and pinkie. Does anyone have advice for removing the stinger?????????
