Not all “bee stings” are from real bees. Here in Maine, probably more stings are by yellow jackets, which are actually a type of ground-dwelling wasp and the most aggressive of local stinging insects. Since summer and fall are when most stings happen, I’ll review for you how to avoid, evaluate, and treat stings when they happen to you or a family member.
