The sting of the Billywig caused giddiness, followed by levitation.[3][4] Dried billywig stings were used as ingredients in several potions,[3] including the Antidote to Uncommon Poisons[4] and the Wideye Potion.[1] It was also rumoured to be an ingredient in the popular sweet Fizzing Whizzbees.[3] The stings produced a slime, which was is also used in potion-making.[5][6]
