I was stung multiple times working on a farm when I was in my early teens. Hay baler ran over a hive, I was in a coma for 3 days. Upside- stinging insects don't even raise a welt now.

I was tore up by a yellow jacket hive when I was five. Stung over 30 times and required hospitalization. They said I would be deadly allergic to all bee venom for the rest of my life... Bee stings feel like a slight itch now and leave only a tiny little red bump.

Seeing that a similar type of thing has happened with someone else I'm pretty curious as to why we are so much more resistant.

I was in a mess with yellow jackets as a child as well, stung 27 times. I was on allergy medication at the time, had some swelling and pain but did not have any medical treatment. I still have the same reactions and get stung 3-5 times a year and hate anything other than honey bees.

Could have been an afericanized bees nest, being in an unpopulated area.

Doc told me I'd either be hyper allergic or nearly immune, depending on how my body reacts to the anti-bodies. In other words, they don't know.

From my limited knowledge, I'm assuming it works like a flu vaccine, once you body builds a resistance to the venom, you have the anti-bodies in your system forever.

I was stung on my eyebrow when I was 8 or 9 and my head swelled up like a balloon.
Every time I got stung I would swell up terribly.

About 10 years ago I was working on the hot heater in my camping trailer. I was digging around in a pick up bed bed full of old water heaters when I felt my arm getting warm. By the time I realized what was going on I was stung at least 30-40 times. My arm swelled up 3 times its normal size. I though I was headed for the er but rode it out.
After a few days the swelling went away and now bee stings are less painfull then musquito bites are annoying.

When I was about 15 or so I was in the barn tossing bales of hay down to one of my brothers to load up on a wagon to be dropped off to a buyer somewhere and, unbeknownst to me, one of the bales had a hive of yellow jackets in it. They did not take the landing on the wooden planks of the wagon too kindly and took their frustration out on my brother below. He only got stung a couple of times but it was still pretty scary (even though we laugh about it now).

Another time when I was about the same age I woke up one morning and looked out my bedroom window and noticed a bunch of honeybees stuck between the glass and the screen. I didn't think much of it until I noticed the same thing on the windows downstairs on the same side of the house. I mentioned it to my parents who sort of shrugged it off and said, "Well, don't open the windows!"

After breakfast I went outside and was walking around the house and could hear a loud buzzing coming from that side of the house. When I got closer I could see what seemed like millions of honey bees flying in and out of every little nook and cranny on the east side of the house... and the house was 120+ years old so there were a lot of holes for them to find. My dad called a friend who was an amateur beekeeper to come smoke them out. He said they probably had a large hive nearby that somehow got destroyed very recently and decided to move into our house. The smoke did the trick though and as quickly as they moved in, they were gone.

The last time I got stung by anything was maybe in 2003 or 2004 when I was in the Marines in NC. I was on my lunch break and out running a few laps of the tiny base I worked at (Camp Geiger) and stopped to do crunches, pull-ups, and push-ups in a field with a lot of clover growing in it. I must have picked an awful spot to do my crunches as I got stung twice on the small of my back. I didn't even realize it though until I got back to the office and felt an incessant itching/irritation back there and asked a co-worker if I had something going on back there and she could see the marks clear as day when I lifted my shirt.

My house is log and has pockets under all the window trim due to the log profile. There are lots of old partial nests all around the house in those pockets, like several per window, but last year(first year in the house) I saw very few bees or wasps. I've seen some scoping the place out this year and I'm REALLY hoping it doesn't turn out to be a big problem. I'm not deadly allergic but get some swelling and irritation, but I mostly just don't wanna deal with it.

I was wheelin in Tenn, Bryan flipped his buggie, so I got in position to pull him over with my winch. Went over to hook him up, got back in my jeep , started to pull him over when I realized that I was parked on hornets nest. I had to bail mid recovery. I had to go full ninja to recover my Jeep hooked to his buggie. There are pics somewhere.
