I usually use tongs
but I started just picking them up by end of tail
someone when I picked on 3rd instar up to move it into the communal tank
it stung me, it got me good, the tip of my left hand index finger
for the first 20 seconds the pain got worse and worse
and the pain only lasted about 3 minutes
then it went numb for a few hours
my question is.... just because I wasn't allergic this time, could I be allergic next time ??
