So yesterday i ventered out into the pasture to catch Two Sox, my llovable llama. So i slipped the noseband over his nose (of course we were in the run in shed so i especially coudlnt see it) and when i went to pull the crown peice around the back of his head thats when the wasp got me :DOH! :DOH! at first i thought it was a horse fly or someythin then it started to crawl across the back of his neck and i scampered out of the shed. i guess i sorta kept him form getiing stung becuse it flew away
so thats my insect story of yesterday :DOH!

heres Two Sox...

I was stung by a wasp once and it hurt really bad. I also felt very weird afterwards. It's good you were able to escape
Love those llamas

I got a wasp up my sleeve once, it managed to sting me twice before I got rid of it. I've been stung while just walking around, minding my own business. The "most unkindest sting of all" was the Yellow Jacket that I SAT on!!

To your left
To lessen the pain and swelling from a wasp sting, apply antiperspirant on the site...the aluminum chlorhydrate does the trick. My husband discovered a wasp's nest the hard way, and we had nothing to put on it. A quick Google search came up with this antidote and it really worked.

Ok I know you're going to roll your eyes and sigh but trust me..it works....tape a penny to the sting or bite, works for every single one AND for the itching that comes after. Honest!
