Was Stan performing in a flea circus by chance?

If so, I did not know they were open to ants!

Allergic reactions to bee stings causes death and that is scary, sometimes you don't know if you are allergic only when it is too late do others see it.

Allergic reaction to bees can be quite deadly indeed! I heard of some cases!

Is ' Stan ', the twenty-three year old ladybird? Am I reading this right? lol!!

If not, then anaphylactic shock by bee sting, as alluded to by your other fine commentators can indeed induce a deadly reaction.

Bees are great in their right place, but they can be scary - and how much more on a tightrope!
