Other areas where trail users have been attacked is around the Gold Country Trails Council Equestrian Trailhead on Hwy. 20, but there are reports from everywhere this past month. Every trail could have ground bees that can easily be set off to attack whatever the bees think you are threatening their home.
What to do? RUN. Get away as quickly as possible from the bee's nest and fewer bees will attack. Prevention? Carry Benedryl liquid AND gel or cream with you this time of year. If you get more than a few stings, your body's immune system is its worst enemy. Liquid Benedryl works as quickly as possible, and Benedryl gel or cream on the stings will take the hurt and redness away. If you feel cold, light headed, numb or can't breathe , IMMEDIATELY call 9-1-1. Bee venom is normally not dangerous, but if you have multiple stings, your body can react. If you know you are allergic, carry both EpiPens and use them when needed.
