Bite and Sting Extractor is a good effective first intervention for spider bite however it is recommended to seek medical attention at the earliest opportunity after a bite.

Bee Stings

Bees are not naturely aggressive unless they are threatened. Their barbed sting is torn off during stinging and stays in the wound with the venom pouch which continues to spread poison.

It is important when using Bite and Sting Extractor on bee stings to remove the sting first as it will facilitate the smoother extraction of venom.

Sandfly Bites

Sandflies, gnats, blackflies and horseflies are without doubt one of the greatest nuisances to human beings and warm blooded animals in the region because of their biting habits.

Sandflies have no medical significance as they are not known to carry any disease organism.

Bite and Sting Extractor is effective in quickly relieving discomfort caused by one or more sandfly bites.

Wasp Stings

Wasp nests can be underground or stuck in trees, attics or roofs. There can be as many as 10,000 wasps in one nest.

Like the bee, their venomous device is an ovipositor, an organ which deposits eggs. Transformed into a sting with venom glands, it serves to paralyze prey for food or for self defence.

ASPIVENIN is very effective against invenomization from insect stings, however in serious cases it is recommended to obtain medical attention.

Ant Bites

Ant bites are rarely dangerous, but they are irritating and very unpleasant. Some tropical species can cause strong, or even serious, reactions i.e. the fire ant which bites and then sprays venom inside the wound it has made.

ASPIVENIN has been field tested in collaboration with Pharmacists Without Borders in the Ecuadorian Amazon and proven effective against the effects of giant ant bites amongst others.
