STUNG by a VELVET ANT!

STUNG by a VELVET ANT!


– I’m Coyote Peterson. Now you’ve seen me
stung by harvester ants, fire ants, and scorpions. But today, I’m moving a rung up on the insect sting pain index and I’m going to be
stung by the cow killer. I have a feeling that
this one is going to hurt. Oh boy. (dramatic music) (yelling) (dramatic music) There’s no question about it, the Wild West is
rough and rugged. And whether you’re talking
about the rocky terrain laced with spine-covered plants, or its animals, most of which are armed with
fags and stingers, Arizona Sonoran Desert is an
adventure-lover’s playground. Sure, we all have our
fears of being bitten by a rattlesnake when
venturing off trail, or in my case, having a
giant desert centipede run up my pant leg. But in actuality the good news is that each and every
one of these creatures does its best to avoid
human interaction. However, sometimes you
have an accidental run-in, and when you do, a bite or
sting can be incredibly painful. Yeah, he got me, he bit me? – [Mark] Are you sure? – [Coyote] Yeah, he
definitely bit me. When it comes to my line of work the goal is to
have an interaction so that I can show you the
effects of these encounters. This way we can all
learn why it’s important to be in tune with
our surroundings and
why it’s always best to admire animals
from a safe distance. Velvet ant, velvet ant! – [Mark] Got one? – Yeah, yeah, he’s right there on the other side of that log. I get my pack off. Yes! Hold on, no, he’s
underneath the log. I just started to tip
it, I saw he ran back, hold on a second. – [Mark] I saw him. – [Coyote] Did you see it? – [Mark] He ducked — again. (dramatic music) – [Coyote] There
it is, there it is. – [Mark] Get ‘im, get
‘im, don’t lose ‘im. – Ah! Yes, yes, look at that! – [Mark] Whoo! (laughing) – Oh, he almost got into
the crevice of that log. Wow, that is a
good sized one too. Ah, but we got our
velvet ant, there it is. Okay, cool, well
tomorrow morning I’m gonna get stung by
that little ornery bugger. Cool. The velvet ant, which
is actually a species of ground wasp and
not an ant at all, claims a famous
nickname, the cow killer. Ranked on the insect
sting pain index as being the fourth most painful
sting in the insect kingdom. Rumor has it that the pain is
so intense it can kill a cow. You may be looking at
this thinking to yourself, “Coyote, are you
gonna get stung?” Yeah, I am, I’m gonna
get stung by this today. Now the insect sting
pain index says that the intense pain will
last for about 30 minutes, and the reason that
I’m doing it is to work my way up
to the bullet ant. You wanna see me
stung by the bullet? Kinda feel like I
have to get stung by everything else
leading up to that. I am not looking
forward to 30 minutes of pain that’s gonna
come from this insect. I know, right? Here we go again. Coyote is about to
enter the strike zone. But this one’s a
little different. When it comes to alligator
bites, crab pinches, or blood-sucking leaches,
I’m fine with that. When it comes to
stingers and venom, that’s where even I get nervous. Now, the females
do not have wings, the males do have wings, but what’s interesting is that the males do not have stingers. Guess who does have a stinger. That’s right, the females, and
that who we have here today. Now one of the most impressive
things about this insect is the size of its stinger. In fact, it’s about as long as the entire length
of the abdomen. What I wanna do now is use
these little entomology forceps to pick the velvet ant
up and show you guys just how big that stinger is. You ready for this? – [Mark] Yeah,
are they delicate? – They are not. The velvet ant actually has a very, very
durable exoskeleton, one of the toughest exoskeletons
in the insect kingdom so me picking her
up with the forceps is not going to cause her
any sort of pain or damage. Come ‘ere. Oh. – [Mark] Gettin’
away, gettin’ away. – [Coyote] I got it, I got it. – [Mark] Got it? – [Coyote] Got it. – [Mark] Got it, awesome. – Now they can be
found in the grass so if you’re out there
walking around barefoot and you step on one of these
you’re not gonna squish it. What’s gonna happen is
it’s gonna spin around, and then it’s gonna
tuck its abdomen under, and boom, you’re gonna get
nailed with that giant stinger. Well, I think at this juncture it is time to for me to
actually take a sting. Are you guys getting nervous? I’ll tell ya what, I sure was. Now they say that this sting is painful enough to kill a cow, however there are no
reported cases of cows, or humans for that matter, ever dying from a
velvet ant sting. This makes me feel a bit better but you never know how your
body will react to venom so we always have an
Epinephrine Pen on location, just in case I have an
allergic reaction to the sting. Alright, Mark signaling me
that it is time, here we go. I’m about to be stung by
the velvet ant, here we go. – [Mark] Alright, Coyote,
well it’s about that time. – Yeah. – [Mark] How are we
gonna pull this off? I see we have, camera-wise,
we have a GoPro, small camera right next to me. Oh hey, there’s Chance. Chance over there. What’s the game
plan for this sting? What’s the idea? – Well, this is gonna
go down one of two ways. What I’m gonna try
first is to actually take this little glass,
flip it upside down, get the ant to this end, and then place it
down on top of my arm. This will isolate
the ant on my skin and I’m hoping that, as
it tries to get away, it’s just going to sting me. Now, if that doesn’t work, I also have my pair
of entomology forceps and I’m actually going
to pick up, hold the ant, place it on my arm,
and let it sting me. One way or another,
I am definitely going to be stung
by the velvet ant. Here we go, okay. Now the first thing
I’m gonna do is get the ant up into
that part of the glass, and then I’m going to spin
this over on my forearm, and with any luck the
ant is going to sting me. Here we go, ready? – [Mark] Let’s do
it, here comes the– – I’m Coyote Peterson, and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the velvet ant. One, two, here we go, three. Oh boy. Oh, my heart’s racing right now. Oh boy, I can its
abdomen kinda pumpin’. My heart is going now. – [Mark] Any second
it could happen. – Yeah, any second
it could sting me. (heavy breathing) Ooh, ooh, ohh, ow, ow, ow, ow, ow, it’s biting at my skin! It’s biting at the edge of the
container trying to get out. And that stinger’s gonna be like a little hypodermic
needle going into my skin. (heavy breathing) This is intense. The glass was actually
starting to get a little foggy from
the heat of my skin so at this point I think we
are going to move to plan B, which is holding the velvet ant
with the entomology forceps. I don’t think it’s going
to sting me at this point, it’s been in there
for about two minutes and so far no sting, it’s
just trying to get out. So I’m gonna flip
my arm upside down and get the ant
back under control. Okay, here we go, ready? – [Mark] Okay. – One, two, three. Okay. – [Mark] Whoo. – Ahhh. – [Mark] How do you feel? – Ahh, extremely nervous
and my heart is racing. I actually think I do
have to take a second just to get my heart
rate to calm back down. Okay, cutting GoPro. Okay, alright, the
only way to actually move forward with this is for me to hold the ant with
the entomology forceps up against my skin
and let it sting me. – [Mark] It seems this
is gonna do it, isn’t it? – Yeah. Hold on, I need a second. My heart’s like, oh, getting
dizzy, yeah, getting dizzy. In the world of
entomology when it comes to milking the venom of
insects and arachnids, holding them with forceps is a guaranteed way
to induce a sting. So I think we all know
what’s going to happen next. This is crazy,
guys, this is crazy. My nerves are going this
much for the velvet ant, I can’t imagine what
the tarantula hawk and the bullet ant
are gonna be like. – [Mark] I can’t believe
you’re about to do this, that stinger is enormous. – Yeah, yeah, okay, you can do
this, you can do this, okay. – [Mark] So that
stinger is gonna go all the way under your skin? – Yeah, it’s gonna go
right into my skin. – [Mark] Yeah, I’m ready. (dramatic music) Oh boy. (dramatic music) Alright, here we go. – You ready? Alright, let’s do this again one more time for good measure. I’m Coyote Peterson and I’m
about to enter the sting zone with the cow killer. Are you ready? – [Mark] Are you ready? – No, I’m never ready. One, two, three. You good? Get your shot, I’m gonna
place it right down on my arm. – [Mark] Got it. – Here we go, with my arm shakin’. And, go. (dramatic music) Ow! (grunting) Okay, let me get back here. – [Mark] You alright? What’re you feelin’? – Oh wow, oh wow, okay. (heavy breathing) Give me a second. Oh my gosh! – [Mark] You alright? – Oh yeah. – [Mark] What are you feeling,
what does it feel like? – Give me a second,
give me a second. (heavy breathing) Oh my gosh, guys,
this is super bad. Move this out of the way. (yelling) (heavy breathing) Hold on, I gotta try to
control my heart rate. Try to get a tight shot of it right there where
the stinger went it, you need to see there’s blood. Okay, try to get a shot
’cause I can get up and like walk
around for a second. Right there. – [Mark] Right there
is where it stung you? – Right where it stung me. I could feel it, it was like you could feel it go all
the way under the skin, all the way in. I could feel it
insert into my arm. (grunting) – [Mark] You gonna be alright? – Okay, now they say that
the sting of the velvet ant will last for about 30 minutes and I can tell
you guys right now this is the worst
sting I’ve ever taken, there’s no question about it. It’s worse than a harvester ant, it is worse than a fire ant. It feels like I’m getting
stung over and over again. You could see the welt
starting to form on my arm. – [Mark] Oh man, yeah,
there’s a welt, big time. Describe the pain, is it
like a pulsating pain, a stabbing pain? – The pain, it’s
radiating, it is radiating. It feels like, you
know if you get a charlie horse in your
muscle and it like seizes up, and then it’s like– Oh, that is powerful. I can see why they
call ’em cow killers. Oh, that is some intense
pain right there. How long has it been, about? – [Mark] About seven minutes. – Seven minutes? Now they say the pain from
this lasts for about 30, I have about 23 minutes to
go, guys, 23 minutes to go. (yelling) Now aside from working my
way up to the bullet ant, the reason I was willing to
take a sting from this insect was so that we could all see
the effects of the venom. 25 minutes has gone by,
my arm is still on fire, and what’s crazy is that
look at all the red blotching that’s formed around the sting. There’s the stinger
insertion point right there and it is swollen,
and it is very tender, and you could see how red the
entire radius is of the sting. And I’m sweating. My goal was to do
the best I could to describe the
pain I was feeling. And it still hurts, it
definitely still hurts, but not as bad as the initial
impact of the stinger. But what’s interesting is that all around the sting is tingling like these little, tiny
pin cushion needles going– And as you can see there’s all
these little red dots forming and I’m assuming that is where the venom is
spreading into my arm. Oh wow, well I
would say that this was definitely one
very intense sting. The cow killer has earned
its reputation as being one of the most powerful
stings in the insect kingdom. (yelling and grunting) And while it may
be ranked as a four on the insect sting pain index, for me at this point, it’s
definitely number one. I’d say I’m one step closer to being stung by the
bullet ant, but first, I’m gonna have to go up
against the tarantula hawk. I have a feeling that that
one is going to be bad. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you on
the next adventure. Whoo, let’s get
out of the desert. Velvet ants are
nomadic ground dwellers that feed primarily on nectar so there’s absolutely no reason
you should ever fear them. If you live or are hiking
in velvet ant territory you’ll want to avoid
a possible sting. Keep your boots on your feet
and you’ll be just fine. If you missed the painfully
entertaining conclusion to my climb up the
insect sting pain index make sure to go back and watch, Stung by an Executioner Wasp. And don’t forget, subscribe

STUNG by a COW KILLER!

STUNG by a COW KILLER!


– I’m Coyote Peterson. Now you’ve seen me
stung by harvester ants, fire ants, and scorpions. But today, I’m moving a rung up on the insect sting pain index, and I’m going to be
stung by the cow killer. I have a feeling that
this one is going to hurt. Oh boy. (scream) (intense percussion music) There’s no question about it. The wild west is
rough and rugged. And whether you’re talking

log, I just started to tip and so I ran
back, hold on a second. – [Mark] I saw him. – [Coyote] Did you see it? – [Mark] He ducked out
and ducked back in. – [Coyote] There
it is, there it is. – [Mark] Get him,
get him to go in it. – Aagh! Yes, yes! Look at that. Whoo! Oh, you almost got me with
the crevice of that log. Wow, that is a
good sized one too. Ah, but we got our velvet ant. There it is. Okay, cool, well,
tomorrow morning, I’m gonna get stung. By that little ornery bugger. Cool. The velvet ant, which
is actually a species
of ground wasp, and not an ant at all,
claims a famous nickname. The cow killer. Ranked on the insect
sting pain index as being the fourth
most painful sting in the insect
kingdom, rumor has it that the pain is so
intense it can kill a cow. You may be looking at
this, thinking to yourself “Coyote, are you
gonna get stung?” Yeah, I am, I’m gonna
get stung by this today. Now the insect sting
pain index says that the intense pain will
last for about 30 minutes. And the reason that
I’m doing it is to work my way up
to the bullet ant. You wanna see me stung
by the bullet ant? Kind of feel like I have to
get stung by everything else leading up to that. I am not looking forward
to 30 minutes of pain that’s gonna come
from this insect. I know, right? Here we go again. Coyote is about to
enter the strike zone. But this one’s a
little different. When it comes to
alligator bites, crab pinches, or
blood sucking leeches, I’m fine with that. When it comes to
stingers and venom, that’s where even I get nervous. Now, the females
do not have wings. The males do have wings,

actually has a very, very durable exoskeleton,
one of the toughest exoskeletons in
the insect kingdom. So me picking her
up with the forceps is not going to cause her
any sort of pain or danger. Oh! – [Mark] Oh, getting
away, getting away. – [Coyote] I got it, I got it. – [Mark] You got it? – [Coyote] Got it. – [Mark] Got it, awesome. – Now they can be
found in the grass, so if you’re out there
walking around barefoot, and you step on one of these,
you’re not gonna squish it. What’s gonna happen is
it’s gonna spin around, and then it’s gonna
tuck its abdomen under and boom, you’re gonna get
nailed with that giant stinger. Well, I think at this juncture, it is time for me to
actually take a sting. Are you guys getting nervous? I’ll tell you what, I sure was. Now they say that this
sting is painful enough to kill a cow. However, there are no
reported cases of cows, or humans for that
matter, ever dying from a velvet ant sting. This makes me feel a bit better, but you never know how your
body will react to venom, so we always have an
Epidendrum pen on location, just in case I have an
allergic reaction to the sting. All right, Mark’s signaling me that it is time, here we go. I am about to be stung
by the velvet ant. Hoo, here we go. Hoo. – [Mark] All right Coyote,
well, it’s about that time. – Yeah. – [Mark] How are we
gonna pull this off? I see we have a, you
know, camera wise we have a GoPro, a small
camera right next to me, oh hey, there’s Chance. Chance over there. What’s the gameplan
for the sting in here? What’s the idea? – Well, this is gonna
go down one of two ways. What I’m gonna try
first is to actually take this little glass,
flip it upside down, get the ant to this end,
and then place it down on top of my arm. This will isolate
the ant on my skin, and I’m hoping that as
it tries to get away, it’s just going to sting me. Now if that doesn’t
work, I also have my pair of entomology forceps,
and I’m actually going to pick, hold the
ant, place it on my arm, and let it sting me. One way or another, I am
definitely going to be stung by the velvet ant. Haaah, here we go. Okay, now the first
thing I’m gonna do is get the ant up into
that part of the glass, and then I’m going
to spin this over onto my forearm
and with any luck, the ant is going to sting me. Here we go, ready? – [Mark] Let’s do it,
here comes number four. – I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the sting zone
with the velvet ant. One, two, here we go, three. Oh boy. Oh, my heart’s racing right now. Aah boy, I can see its
abdomen kind of pumping. My heart is going now. – [Mark] Any second
it could happen. – Yeah, any second
it could sting me. Oh boy, ooh ooh ooh, ow ow ow, ow, it’s biting at my skin, it’s biting at the edge of the
container trying to get out. Ooh. Oh, and that stinger is gonna be like a little hypodermic
needle going into my skin. This is intense. The glass is actually
starting to get a little foggy from the heat of my
skin, so at this point I think we are going
to move to plan B, which is holding the velvet ant with the entomology forceps. I don’t think it’s going
to sting me at this point. It’s been in there
for about two minutes, and so far no sting. It’s just trying to get out. So I’m gonna flip
my arm upside down, and get the ant
back under control. Okay, here we go, ready? – [Mark] Okay. – One, two, three. Okay, whoo. Ahhhh. – [Mark] How do you feel? – Aahh, extremely nervous,
and my heart is racing. I actually think I do
have to take a second just to get my heart
rate to calm back down. Okay, cut and GoPro. Okay. All right, the only
way to actually move forward with this
is for me to hold the ant with the entomology forceps. Up against my skin,
and let it sting me. – [Mark] This seems, this
gonna do it, isn’t it? – Yeah, hold on, I need
a second, heart’s like, – [Mark] You all right? – Ooh, getting dizzy,
yeah, getting dizzy. In the world of
entomology, when it comes to milking the venom of
insects and arachnids, holding them with forceps
is a guaranteed way to induce a sting. So I think we all know
what’s going to happen next. This is crazy,
guys, this is crazy. My nerves are going this
much for the velvet ant, I can’t imagine what
the tarantula hawk and the bullet ant
are gonna be like. Okay. – [Mark] I can’t believe
you’re about to do this. That stinger is enormous. – Yeah, yeah, okay, you can
do this, you can do this. – [Mark] So is that stinger gonna go all the
way under you skin? – Yeah, it’s gonna go
right into my skin. – [Mark] Okay, I’m ready. Oh boy. All right, here we go. – Here we go, ready? All right, let’s do this again one more time for good measure. I’m Coyote Peterson,
and I’m about to enter the sting zone with
the cow killer. Are you ready? – [Mark] Are you ready? – No, I’m never ready. One, two, three. You good? – [Mark] Yeah. – Get your shot,
I’m gonna place it right down on my arm. Here we go. With my arm shaking. And go. Ahh! (pained gasps) Okay, I’m gonna get back here. – [Mark] You all right? What are you feeling? – Gaah! Oh, wow. Oh wow, okay. (heavy breathing) Give me a second. Oh my gosh. – [Mark] You all right? – Oh yeah. – [Mark] What are you feeling,
what does it feel like? – Give me a sec, give me a sec. (rapid panting) Oh my gosh guys,
this is super bad. Move this out of the way. Gah! Gah! Oh my gosh, I gotta try
to control my heart rate. Try to get a tight
shot of it right there with the stinger, we need to
see to see if there’s blood. Okay, try to get a shot,
because if I can get it we’ll like walk
around for a second. Right there. – [Mark] Right there
is where it stung you? – Right where it stung me. I could feel it, it was like, you could feel it go all
the way under the skin. All the way in. I can feel it
insert into my arm. (grunting) – [Mark] You gonna be all right? – Okay. Now they say that the
sting of the velvet ant, will last for about 30 minutes. And I can tell you
guys right now, this is the worst
sting I’ve ever taken. There’s no question about it. It is worse than
a harvester ant, it is worse than a fire ant. It feels like I’m getting
stung over and over again. You can see the welts
starting to form on my arm. – [Mark] Oh man, yeah,
those are welts, big time. Describe the pain, is it
like a pulsating pain, a stabbing pain? – If it pain, it’s
radiating, it is radiating. It feels like, you know
if you get a charlie horse in your muscle, and
it like seizes up, and it’s like doomph, doomph. Ah, that is powerful. Ah, I can see why they
call them cow killers. (chuckle) That is some intense
pain right there. How long has it been? – [Mark] About seven minutes. – About seven minutes? Well they say the pain from
this lasts for about 30. I have about 23
minutes to go, guys. 23 minutes to go. Aah! Now aside from working my
way up to the bullet ant, the reason I was
willing to take a sting from this insect
was so that we could all see the effects
of the venom. 25 minutes has gone by. My arm is still on fire. And what’s crazy is that,
look at all the red blotching that’s formed around the sting. There is the stinger
insertion point right there, and it is swollen,
and it is very tender, and you can see how red
the entire radius is, of the sting. I’m sweating. My goal was to do
the best I could to describe the
pain I was feeling. And it still hurts, it
definitely still hurts, but not as bad as the initial
impact of the stinger. But what’s interesting is
that all around the sting is tingling, like these little
tiny pin cushion needles going tsk tsk tsk. And as you can see there’s
all these little red dots forming, and I’m assuming
that is where the venom is spreading into my arm. Oh wow, well I would say
that this was definitely one very intense sting. The cow killer has
earned its reputation as being one of the
most powerful stings in the insect kingdom Gaaggh! Arrrgghh! Ergh! And while it may
be ranked as a four on the insect sting pain index, for me, at this point,
it’s definitely number one. I’d say I’m one step closer to being stung by
the bullet ant, but first, I’m gonna
have to go up against the tarantula hawk. I have a feeling that that
one is going to be bad. I’m Coyote Peterson. Be brave, stay wild, we’ll
see you on the next adventure. Whoo, let’s get
out of the desert. Velvet ants are nomadic
ground dwellers, that feed primarily on nectar. So there is absolutely no reason you should ever fear them. If you live or are hiking
in velvet ant territory, you’ll want to avoid
a possible sting. Keep your boots on your feet,
and you will be just fine. If you thought that
sting was intense, make sure to check
out the compilation of all my worst bites,
pinches, and stings, as we work our way up to
the bullet ant challenge. And don’t forget, subscribe, so you can join me and the crew on this season of

How to Treat Insect Bites & Stings : How to Reduce the Itching of an Insect Bite

How to Treat Insect Bites & Stings : How to Reduce the Itching of an Insect Bite


Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. Now in
this clip I’m going to demonstrate to you how you can find a way to reduce the itching
when you’re bitten by an insect like a mosquito. So what I have here is you can take an aspirin
tablet. Don’t do this if you’re allergic to aspirin though, okay so make sure you’re not
allergic to aspirin. But you take an aspirin tablet and then you pulverize it into a powder
form. So here I have a pulverized tablet of aspirin and I put it into this bowl here like
that. Then what I do is I’m going to make a little paste. So you just want to add a
little bit of water just so it dissolves the aspirin, you know the powder to make a very
paste like substance texture. Add a bit more. Keep doing that until it becomes like a paste
like that. So once you’ve got a paste off the pulverized aspirin, what you do for example
if I say that this was the area on my hand, on my arm where it’s bitten from the mosquito
and it is very itchy and inflamed, what I can do is the first thing I need to do is
to make sure that the area is cleansed with soapy water. So you got to clean the area
very well all over the area that is bitten with soapy water. Pat it all dry and then
to reduce the itching what you could do is you could use your fingers. But make sure
your hands are sterilized, wash it was soapy water. Then you can just add this paste all
onto the bite itself with this pulverized aspirin paste. Just put it over the area that
is bitten and that will help to give you some relief from the itch and the pain. It will
stop you from scratching as well because a lot of the inflammation, infection is caused
on mosquito bites it’s cause by repetitive scratch in the area and opening the skin wound.
So this is one way to help you alleviate the itching and prevent inflammation and infection.

Free Handling Bullet Ants?!

Free Handling Bullet Ants?!


– I’m going to
free-handle a bullet ant. – Oh, risky. Now you’re conquering
the bullet ant. – Well I do feel pretty
confident at this point that I’ve already taken a sting, it was a pretty bad sting. But, I’m pretty comfortable
just free-handling one of these ants. – Mark, are you ready? – Are you gonna do it?
– Is it possible? – Yeah.
– Ooh, ooh, ooh. – (Laughing) Be careful. (pounding jungle
music with drums) Well guys, it is
officially the end of 2016. I cannot believe
it, I’m still alive, gone through many crazy
episodes this past year. What I wanna do is to
actually bring the guys who are normally
behind the camera in front of the cameras with me. So Mark, Mario, come on
down here and join me. – [Mark] Woo, all right!
– Yeah. Ah!
– Mario, we’re on screen. (laughter and claps) – These guys, what a year, dude. – Yeah.
– My buddies right here. We could not bring you
guys all this content without these two guys
behind the camera. Now it’s been a wild year. It has been the year
of the bullet ant. – [Mark] Yeah it
has been actually. – And actually, I’ve
got one right here in this little container. – (Laughing) You brought one? – Yeah I did, and you know what? – Uh oh!
– What are you doing? – I’m going to
free-handle a bullet ant. – Oh, risky. Now you’re conquering
the bullet ant. – Look at that, well I
do feel pretty confident at this point, that I’ve
already taken a sting. It was a pretty bad sting. But, I’m pretty comfortable
just free-handling one of these ants.
– Mark, are you ready? – Is that possible?
– You gonna do it? You ready?
– Yeah, oh, oh, ooh. – Be careful.
(suspenseful drumbeats) – [Mark] I need a little help. – There you go.
– [Mario] There you go, Mark. – [Coyote] Look at that,
there’s the director of Brave Wilderness Shows
free-handling a bullet ant. A little nerve-wracking, huh? – A little bit.
– What’s that feel like? – [Mark] I try not to
think about it right now. – [Coyote] Now what
we need you to do. – [Mark] I’m trying to
stay as still as possible. – Is take a sting
and then present. – (laughing) Okay, I don’t
want to take your job, that’s your job. – [Coyote] Yeah, we already
cut, let’s do that again, Mark. – (Laughing) No, no. – [Coyote] All right,
let me get the ant back onto my hand,
okay there we go. – Woo!
(laughing) – Bullet ant back
in the container. Okay, let’s back it up. So the beginning
of the year started with the harvester ants.
– That’s right. – [Coyote] Then there
were the fire ants. – [Mark] That was bad,
that was a lot worse than we anticipated. – [Coyote] Yeah, the fire
ants were really, really bad. Then it went to
the alligator bite. – [Mark] Um, hm.
– That one was pretty gnarly. – [Mark] Yeah.
– Then it was. – [Mark] Leeches?
– The leeches, we did the leeches. There was the crab pinch. Then there was the
velvet ant sting. – [Mark] And the
tarantula hawk sting. – And the tarantula hawk sting, that was a rough one for me. And then we finally made
it here to Costa Rica where we faced the
bullet ant challenge, and that was crazy. The ant’s stinger actually
got lodged in my arm. I actually still have.
– You can still see it, yeah. – A scar right there.
– Right there. – Man, that was wild. And we’re at the end of our
Costa Rica trip right now and you may notice my
voice is pretty hoarse. – [Mark] Yeah,
we’ve been filming for the last 12 days straight. – 12 straight days
of power presenting in front of the camera. What are we coming
away with, 15 episodes? – 15 pieces, yeah. – 15 pieces of
content in 12 days. So looking back on
the whole year, Mario, which episode or location do
you think was your favorite? – Oh well, Alaska was such a
different environment for me. The animals are different,
the climate was different, everything about it. So I think that stands
out for me, Alaska, yeah. – Well definitely, I mean,
I think the craziest thing that happened to us in Alaska
was that bear encounter, where we ran into
that sow and her cubs on the side of river. I mean, talk about a real moment that you could never
plan to capture on camera that we got little
bits and pieces of and managed to put out that
episode, The Bear Scare. – Yeah I’ll never forget that. I remember hearing
you, that this is like, “Bear, bear.” And I’m like, “Am I getting
attacked by a bear?” (laughing) “Wait, is he getting
attacked by a bear?” – All right, so Mark what
was your favorite location or moment from this past year? – For me personally, it’s
actually unreleased video. You guys are gonna be
seeing it soon, the green and black poison frog has
been my favorite animal since I was nine years old. If Ms. Honeycutt’s out there,
I actually did a project in Science class on that frog. So getting to actually
be out here in Costa Rica and hold one, that’s
been a 23 year journey for that moment. So, for me that
was really special. So hopefully you guys
will like that episode, it’s gonna be coming soon,
but that’s my highlight. – Um hm, oh so many great
episodes are coming out of this trip here to Costa Rica. I probably have a favorite I
could pick out of this trip, but when I look back at
the year, I’d have to say that the wolverine
was my favorite. – [Mark] Um, hm, right, yeah. – As we expressed to you
guys in that episode, it has taken us so many
years to be able to get to Alaska, I got to
work with Steve Kroschel and get up close with
that amazing animal. It’s something I
will never forget and it was awesome. I mean, you talk about
our year on YouTube, the wolverine episode
premiered, trending as the number one video
the day after Thanksgiving. Which was amazing.
– Amazing. – A 30 minute video,
and that was you guys watching the video,
getting it to number one. I mean, we trended so
many times this past year and subscribers, all of you,
new members of the Coyote Pack. – Yeah.
– I mean Mark, what was the biggest day we had? – I think the velvet
ant sting day. – Yeah.
– I remember I was on a flight to Spain actually, and I was watching
our sub counter just
go ding, ding, ding. So, just so humbling that
that many people are jumping on board the Brave
Wilderness ship and watching all this great animal content. – And what was it? 342,000 new subscribers
in a single day? – In a single day. I think we got, there
was a million of you who joined in just a
period of three days. – Yeah, three days there
was 1.2 million new members of the Coyote Pack
in just three days. Now we do have some
cool stuff planned for you guys in 2017. First of all, we will
be traveling worldwide at this point. What’s our first location? – [Mark] We’re actually
going to be coming back to Costa Rica in January on
the west coast this time. So we’ll be bringing you
cool stuff from there. But what Mario and I are
really excited about, we’re going to Australia. So that’s.
– Oh man. Lots and lots of reptiles. – [Mark] Yeah,
it’s gonna be good. Lots of snakes, lots of lizards. – [Coyote] Lots of danger. – Lots of tide pools, all
kinds of cool, creepy crawlies to get in front of the camera.
– Yeah. – We’ve only explored
just one little part of the world so far.
– Yeah. – [Mario] I mean
the world is huge. – [Mark] North America. – [Mario] The animal
kingdom is huge. Like so many bizarre
creatures that we haven’t even come upon yet. – [Coyote] Um, hm.
– I’m excited. – Well I know, speaking
on behalf of myself and the entire crew,
both here in the field and in post production,
we couldn’t thank the audience more,
the Coyote Pack. You guys grow more and
more every single day. It inspires us to get
out here into the wild, take the risks that we
do, battling the elements of nature to get the
episodes right there in front of the lens,
and then eventually out to you guys on YouTube. And all I know is that
if we can come near to as close in 2017
as we did in 2016, it’s gonna be
another amazing year. You guys ready? – [Mario] Yeah.
– Let’s do it. – Let’s do it.
– All right. I’m Coyote Peterson,
be brave, stay wild. We’ll see you guys next year. – Woo!
– Woo, bullet ants! If you enjoyed our
end of the year video, make sure to go back and
watch my favorite episode of 2016, Phantom
of the Wilderness, featuring the wolverine. And don’t forget,
subscribe so you can join me and the crew on
our next location. No, no, no, no, no, no,
we’ve got meat and you, I need you to go this way. Go this way, okay I’ll
get behind the meat. (growling, crackling) (crashing pound, wolf howls) (birds chirp)

How to Treat Insect Bites & Stings : How to Reduce the Swelling of an Insect Bite

How to Treat Insect Bites & Stings : How to Reduce the Swelling of an Insect Bite


Hello, my name is Dr. Susan Jewell. Now in
this clip I’m going to show you some other ways to reduce the itching and the swelling
from insect bites; particularly mosquito bites. So here are some other ways you can do. You
can use Caldyphen lotion; like for example here I bought this in the local drug store.
It contains Calamine in the ingredients. You can also use it for you know poison ivy, besides
insect bites, poison oak. It has several functions. You can buy this probably not in this brand,
there is several others out there popular in the market to buy. Or you can use ice.
So what you do for example is, let me demonstrate; so imagine here is the insect bite and it’s
swollen up into a hive and it’s very irritating and itchy. So first thing you can do to is
to relief, to get some relief from the symptoms is to of course you know wash with soapy water
around the area. Make sure that you clean it and then you pat it dry, the soapy water.
Then what you can do is after that to relief some of the itchiness on the swelling could
you some ice. What you can do is just rub this over the inflamed area, or the swelling
or itchy area. The coldness actually helps to detract from the itchy and that horrible
itchy and swelling sensation. So just rub the ice over there. Now if you do that you
can that, of course the ice melts, it’s only temporary. You can also use the Caldyphen
and you just put a dab of that onto the bitten area and just rub it in. That should give
you some temporary relief anyway and to prevent you from scratching cause that is what you
should not do is scratch the itch and get it infected and then you’re going to get an
infection in that area. So these are just some more ways to be able to help reduce the
symptoms from insect bites and bee stings.
