    It may work like stumping your toe, and then get a toothache,in my case the toothache would make me forget the toe ache.:roll: Jack

    Nice bee picture in the article. If it is yellow and black and flies it is a bee. The venom's are close enough in their make up that one should work as well as the other, but I doubt anyone has done the long term research on all the different types. with honey bees they can look at the long term history between beekeeper and getting stung.
