Insect Sting Allergy (Ant, Wasp and Bee Stings): Reduce Exposure


It is vital to know how to decrease the risk of bee, wasp and insect stings if you or a family member has a bee sting, wasp sting or insect venom allergy.

Train your child’s caregivers to recognize the symptoms of a sting and how to react when avoidance strategies fail and a sting occurs.

Detain bee stings, wasp stings, ant bites and other insect stings:

Wear protective clothing while outside to reduce exposed skin.

Wear full pants when hiking or mowing the grass and wear gloves while gardening.

Wear white or light-colored a clothing. Dark clothing and clothing with flowery patterns are more likely to attract insects.

Put on shoes rather than bare feet or sandals.

Utilize unscented deodorant, and rinse off perspiration after vigorous exercise. Insects are attracted to the scent of deodorants and a perspiration.

Ignore the use of strong-smelling perfume, cologne, hair oil, hair spray or lotions, due to insects may be attracted by their fragrance.

Cover food and drinks at outdoor programs   as much as possible.

Keep outside garbage full covered. The smell of a food attracts insects.

Utilize insect repellents, and keep insecticide available.

Do not knowingly reach or disturb the nests of stinging insects.

Moreover to preventing exposure, it is vital to be prepared to treat insect sting reactions in a variety of settings, containing at home, school, day care, friend's houses and all other sites where your child spends time. This is known an Insect Sting Action Plan.
