Treat Insect Stings with Ammonia or Vinegar
Bee and wasp stings can happen at any time of the year, and you need to be ready. If you get stung by one of these insects, you can relieve the pain with common household supplies.
Specifically, "Ammonia for a bee sting; vinegar for a wasp sting."
This tip comes from Dr. Bill Grierson, professor emeritus at University of Florida on Rules of Thumb. It's old advice (in fact, here's an article from 1968 recommending ammonia for all stings) that supposedly works because the insect venom is acidic while ammonia is alkaline.
Hopefully you'll be like me this summer and not have a chance to try this out, but just in case it might be a good idea to keep a little ammonia or vinegar around when you're outdoors.
