A dissolved aspirin in a little spray bottle is an excellent antidote for bug bites.

ThriftyFun is one of the longest running frugal living communities on the Internet. These are archives of older discussions.
For those people who get bit by bees, mosquitoes and any other bugs, make a paste of aspirin and water and put on bite. Voila! The itch and swelling goes away immediately.
P.S. For red ant bites use Vicks vapor rub.
