This can save your life.
It is very interesting and it is a pity so few people know about it.
I understand at least 40000 a year die from various bites.
I keep a piezo device I took out from a cigerette lighter with me all the time.It has saved me many times from various insect bites including bees.
I also have a battery operated spark igniter in the house.
This cost me $3.99 and generates sparks at 4 a second.
You should use it as soon as possible,preferably within 3 hours for snakebite and immediately if you are allergic to bee venom.
You should click it at least 20 times around the bite to make sure.You cannot harm yourself with it unless you have a delicate pacemaker.
You can also buy it on the web for $7,it's known as a "mosquito clicker",but not confined to mosquitos.
Last year a multi millionaire was having a barbecue with all his fellow executives in the garden when he got stung by a bee and had an allergic
reaction.They took him to hospital but he died after 3 hours.
Amazing a man with so much wealth and power can be brought down by a lowly insect.
I mean he was surrounded by guards,maids,butlers,he had a bently,a ferrari,he wore a diamond ring with gold cufflinks and so on...and yet and yet he
still died after getting stung by a bee but because he did not have this vital piece of knowledge he died.
No one knew that the piezoelectric spark generator in their cigarette lighters in their pockets could have saved him if they had used it immediately.
