Yes it’s that time of year and the jellyfish are back! You might think it sounds like a minor problem and in some ways it is, but after getting so many stings, at least for me, I’ve been having outbreaks of hives all over my body. The jelly fish come in different shapes and sizes, some worse than others. I’ve found three main categories and they can be there one minute and gone the next, but they always show up sometime in spring and then we get a few stragglers throughout the rest of the year. It could be worse….we could be on the East Coast with no waves, Blue Bottles and Sea Lice!
Here’s a quick outline of the local jellies- all scientific information provided by experts of course!
