In view of what I've read on John's (Planbee) thread, I need to ask a few questions. Firstly I've never had a sting where venom has been injected. Once I was jabbed in the back of the neck but I flinched and don't think it broke the skin. Will working with bees and not being stung build up a resistance or will it make it worse when I finally get stung? What happens when people get stung repeatedly over the years - do they build up a resistance or does it gradually get worse to a point where they can no longer work with bees? Is it an individual thing where there is no telling what will happen? Should I go and get stung deliberately to find out?
