About Who I Am

My name is Angie and I’ve been a computer geek my since I was 12. I currently work in an IT department for a large software company for the past 8 years. My position is a database developer, I love the work and hope to have a management position in 3 years.

When I’m not at work, my hobby is reading about and learning about stinging insects. Sounds weird, I know, but I’ve been fascinated with them for a long time and know quite a lot. It all started when I was about 9 years old and my friend Max and I were playing in the woods near our house where we grew up on Long Island.

Max knocked into a yellow jackets nest and we were attacked pretty badly. Both of us ran in opposite direction to our own homes during the attack. We both had well over 25 stings all over our bodies. Luckily, our mom;s new the best treatment to cool and extract the sting venom which was a paste applied tot he sting area made up of baking soda and water.

Ever since then I’ve always been fascinated with stinging insects and have become a bit of a trivia expert on these creatures.

So I write this blog to share with you my knowledge and experiences of these different insects in as much detail as possible. So please enjoy and go right to my home page to start.
