Think I got stung by an African Killer Bee!

I was out riding on back roads through some citrus groves. I always wear leather pants, with the exception of this time. Suddenly felt like I'd been shot with a .22 in the thigh. Looked down for a bloody spot and saw a stinger poking out of my jeans and yanked it out. The pain was excruciating! My whole left leg went numb. Got home and looked at the spot...left a bloody hole half the size of a match head. Place still hurts like hell and there's still a red, swollen area the size of a silver dollar. That happened a week ago!

I've been stung by bees, wasps, hornets, etc. and never was really bothered. The local news had a story yesterday about the African bees being found in the area. If it was one, I can sure see how they could kill a human if you're nailed several dozen times. Back to the leathers....heat or not! Now, bring on the love bugs!

Maybe you should go to the doctor and get it checked. You just never know.

It might be worth a visit to the doctor or at least a call to vector control.

Some days will stay a thousand years, some pass like the flash of a spark.

I have an appointment next week anyway and I'll have him look at it then if it's still swollen. I'm no wuss...have to inject myself every week with a 1 1/2 inch needle ( a "chemo" type treatment). This damn insect hurt 1000 times more than when I shoot up.

Yep. That area has tons of commercial bee hives set between the rows of orange trees. I understand the African Bees sneak in the hives and blend in with the regular honey bees. It'd really suck if the killer bees became a nuissance in this area....especially for bikers! Jeezus tap-dancin' Christ...that's the most painful thing I've experienced since I wrote my first alimony check!
