    Some more info about this ...

    Well, I do agree with you guys that a telephoto lens (and bear spray) plus respect for wildlife would have gone a long way to prevent these two deaths from occuring.

    Never done this or seen it - don't you end up with lots of dirt and ashes on your meat that way? Do you end up having to cut off the dirty and burned outside?

    Yeah, that sure is a stupid spot. I guess the more the area gets moved or compressed, the more the venom spreads. Noticed that my finger didn't take too kindly to doing laundry and stacking firewood...

    Excellent! That was my experience with our ducks, too. Also a good reason to look into keeping breeds that aren't available locally, but still a good choice for the area - might make it easier to...

    Maybe as far as pain relief goes, I don't think taking willow internally would make a swelling go down, though. I take it you haven't taken the opportunity you had to try a different cure on each bee...

    I was thinking that too. Also found out why the hydrocortisone ointment didn't do a thing: it ran off two years ago :) Not a problem that happens with willows! They stay right where they are.

    That would be nice, but I doubt it. We still have to earn an income here and for example, in May the paper I used to write for laid off half of its staff, including me. So there went 95% of my income...
