The force is with ya: No. Vemon testing is only appropriate once one or multiple stings have lead to a systematic reaction. The only questionable exception is the person with large local reactions. In vivo or invitro testing cannot prognosticate whether a person will become allergic. Statistically the odd are with you and against anaphylaxis.
