Woman dies after having bee-sting therapy

It was only a matter of time before something happened. Apitherapy have been a thing for a very long time with no reported deaths with someone with a tolerance to bee venom until now. I am asked many times a year for live bees by sufferers of MS and other conditions but there is no real scientific proof to the benefits of this type of treatment there is lots of sketchy papers on the subject.

I would advise any Beekeeper approached to supply bees for this purpose Not to as there could be serious legal issues not covered by your public liability insurance.
