She reacts like me to stings so far in that we don't react. I know that can change over time and we keep epi-pens on hand. She loves the bees and helping out. She was disappointed when we stopped letting her help because they clung to her ankles when she got near the mean hive once and stung her when we had her slowly walk away. She was ready to help the very next time...now she can...and now we don't have to buy her a halloween costume because she can go as a beekeeper. I need to convince her little brother to be the bee lol.
