Bee stings are acidic. So if you get stung you need to put bicarbonate of soda on a bee sting.

Bee stings are acidic. Wasp stings are alkaline. Sometimes exam questions have asked what could be used to neutralise either. So Bicarbonate of soda on a bee sting and vinegar on a wasp sting. Hope that helps!

A bee sting is typically acidic in nature. However, it's not as acidic as we think. Bee venom has a pH of 4.5-5.5 (7 is neutral), which makes it slightly acidic.

Bee stings are acidic, because of this they need to be neutralised by adding something that is alkaline to them (e.g. Bicarbonate of soda).
Yes, a bee sting is acidic. It contains formic acid, which is responsible for the pain and irritation

A bee sting is acidic, it contains formic acid (methanoic acid), as part of its complex chemical composition.
So you would want to use something alkali to neutralise it.

Bee stings are slightly acidic (apply alkaline eg. bicarb of soda to neutralise) and wasp stings are alkaline (apply acid eg. vinegar to neutralise).
