Believe it or not, the answer is all around you.
The plant is plantain. (Plantago major (broad leaf) and Plantago lanceolata (long leafed or English plantain) ) This is a common "weed" found anywhere where soil has been disturbed.
You'll recognize it growing in the cracks of your neighborhood sidewalks.
1.Pick a few leaves of plantain from a clean source. Try to gather it away from the side of the road. Also away from places where chemicals are sprayed. HOWEVER, it an emergency, you get it where you can get it.
2.Chew the leaves up real good keeping the plant matter and saliva in the front of your mouth.
3.Spit it out on to your bee or wasp sting site.
Hold it on the sting site for a few minutes until you feel relief. Repeat if necessary.
