What happens when an ant or a bee stings? How are these treated?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 29 Apr, 2014, 10:02: AM
Expert Answer

When an ant or bee stings, formic acid gets injected into the skin. This acid causes irritation and swelling.

To get relief from the irritation and swelling, baking soda paste is rubbed at the sting site. Baking soda is basic and hence neutralises the formic acid left behind after the sting.
