Bee aware, but not alarmed: here’s what you need to know about honey bee stings

Nice article covering the nature of bee stings

The only thing I would add is that if/when you are stung when working hives, always wash the site with water as soon as possible to remove the pheromone that signals other bees to attack. Smoke from a smoker on the sting site can also be effective in masking the pheromone if there is no water immediately available.
