Summer Sorrows

Insect bites: the main scourge of summer

Bites can hurt. During the summer season, bees, wasps and hornets are out. They collect the necessary pollen to pass the winter and put aside food. They are numerous in the gardens to go from flower to flower to forage. So be careful where you step. You should know that the wasp does not lose its sting unlike the bee. It should be removed with a clean tweezers, then disinfect with alcohol. The bites are often more painful than dangerous, except in cases of allergy (swelling, severe pain). As for the hornet, its sting sinks deeper into the skin. His bites are more dangerous. We advise you to see your doctor or the emergency department in case of a bite near the eyes, near the mouth, or that you have swallowed one.

Ants andmosquitoes are also famous for feeding our bodies during the summer. Although their bites are not dangerous, they should be cleaned with soap and water. You can also use an itchy cream. The precautionary principle being useful, do not hesitate to apply an anti- mosquito lotion on the areas of skin which are uncovered as well as on the clothes and to use a mosquito net.
