Insects Stings

The insects most likely to cause medical problems are bees (including the domestic honey bee), wasps and ants.
Bees and wasps inject venom by stinging. Sometimes the stinger may be left in the skin. The venom may cause direct injury to the human body.

Possible Injuries of an Insect Bite: The severity of a sting is determined by: The type of insect, the location of the sting, the number of stings, and the allergic sensitivity of the victim
 Local reactions only the part of the body near the sting is affected
 Immediate pain, redness, swelling, and itching at the sting site may occur.
 A larger local reaction may develop over the next 12-36 hours.
 A bacterial skin infection, although uncommon, may also begin during the first 12-36 hours .
 Systemic or allergc reactions parts of the body away from the sting are affected
 raised itchy lesion on the skin ,and itching all over the body
 Swelling of the mouth or throat or both
 Wheezing ,Shortness of breath or other difficulty breathing
