April 11 | Elizabeth Bang – Allergic Reactions to Bee Venom

It’s one of the questions we all get as beekeepers: “What’s the best way to treat a bee sting, and when should we go to the emergency room?”

Most people have a localized reaction to a bee sting, but some individuals have a much greater, and potentially dangerous reaction.

While not a substitute for medical advice, this talk will provide information to help beekeepers make better-informed decisions regarding allergic reactions to bee venom. Topics will include how to recognize anaphylaxis, emergency management, and epinephrine auto-injectors.

Our speaker Elizabeth Bang has been a beekeeper for 3 years, raises queens, does cutouts, and chases swarms down on the peninsula. She is an RDH, with formal training in anaphylactic emergency management.
