Coyote Peterson's Failed Attempt At A Bee Beard

Wildman and Brave Wilderness host Coyote Peterson isn't afraid to go to extremes to track down and handle whichever insect he's currently obsessed with, but sometimes his bug obsession makes him act without thinking first.

Like the time he shaved his beard off just so he could replace it with a squirming mass of European honey bees- Coyote didn't look right without his signature scruff, and he looked even less right after the bees stung the hell out of his face.

Apparently getting stung by a bunch of bees hurts worse than the sting of a bullet ant- who knew?!

From beekeeping books that I have read in the past, you are not supposed to pull the stingers out with your fingers, if you can avoid it. Tweezers or a scraper are better, because the stinger, the venom sac and venom gland are left behind by the bee as it pulls itself out. Pinching these organs will squeeze the venom through the stinger, giving you a full dose all at once. Tweezers or a scraper can be used to pull the stinger out without this squeezing effect.

Some scents have the effect of angering bees. Beekeepers do not use certain scented personal care products because of this. His aftershave may have been one of the type that sets bees off., for instance.
