Should I swat at a bee or wasp flying around me?

When a person is outside at a barbeque or sporting event they may have a bee or wasp flying around them. The one thing to NOT do is swat at it. Swatting at the bee or wasp can cause it to become alarmed and sting. If the individual remains still for a moment the insect should fly off. Some perfumes can attract bees and wasps. It is also important to note that beverages should have lids and check them before drinking. A sting to the mouth can be life threatening.
