Taking care of plants and flowers is an age-old practice and business for gardeners and farmers. Lately, there has been a boom, or rather blossoming, of so-called plantitos and plantitas. The pollen from certain plants attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and other animals. While bees are extremely important to the ecosystem, some people mistakenly swat or spray them when they fly by. This can cause them to sting you. Learning first aid for bee stings is important for plant owners and outdoorsy people alike.
