Oh, he's so beautiful!!!!
You know, I had completely forgotten about that! When I was little, I used to run around outside and in the woods all the time, and got stung by yellow jackets a lot. My mother used to smoke (not heavily), and she would break an unlit cigarette in half and pull out the tobacco, wet it, and put it on the sting. It really does work well, as I recall. Makes me think a pack of cigarettes should be in my first aid kit (I have TONS of paper wasps that have decided that my house is theirs, and I've gotten multiple nasty stings lately...)

Those wasp sprays that shoot out in a jet really do work. I used to have waist length hair and had it in a ponytail when I ducked under a storage shed not knowing there was a full size paper wasp nest.. right above the door..... it was NOT fun because a bunch got stuck in my ponytail so they proceeded to sting me in the neck repeatedly...... could feel every sting sliding in and out.. my neck was so sore and numb for a week... The doctor warned me about possible reaction if there was another sting so ever since, a trip to get that wasp spray was in order for every sighted nest..
