Nancy Robinson, EMS Coordinator at Camp Randall, is well aware of the
distress yellowjackets inflict. "On average, in August and September,
the paramedics respond to two or three stings per game in the stands and
about 16 patients will come into the first aid stations," says Robinson.
The number of stings is likely higher, as football fanatics shrug off a
sting to keep watching the Badgers push for the end zone. The yellowjackets
are such a problem that between displaying touchdowns and field goals,
the scoreboard flashes a reminder to fans:
"Please make sure to check for bees in your beverages!"
[I'd kill for a picture of the thusly flashing scoreboard.]
