Bites and stings
There are many Australian animal and insect species that bite or sting. In general, most bites and stings, such as those from mosquitos and ants, are not serious and don’t require medical treatment. If the bite or sting is from a dangerous spider, snake, or the person is having an allergic reaction, then first aid should include phoning for help (call 000), bandaging the wound and keeping the person immobile until medical help arrives.
Call triple zero (000) for an ambulance in an emergency and apply CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation) if the person collapses or stops breathing.
